Following their 3-1 win over Group A favourites Myanmar U22 on Monday, Malaysia U22 goalkeeper Haziq Nadzli has remarked that the win will surely make other teams take notice of the hosts' strengths.

Speaking to the press after the match, the Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) custodian said that he was satisfied with his performance in the match, in which he retained his place in the starting line-up from their 2-1 win against Singapore last Wednesday.

"So far I'm grateful with the three points and the win. I will work on my weaknesses in the coming games.

"Maybe everyone will stop underestimating Malaysia's chances in the SEA Games after this," 

Malaysia will play unfancied Laos in their final Group A match on Wednesday, with a draw sufficient to allow Ong's men to finally pip Myanmar to the top spot.
