In the SEA Games men's football gold medal match press conference, Malaysia head coach Datuk Ong Kim Swee told the press that neither his side nor their opponents; Thailand are the favourites in the encounter.
"It's the final game of the tournament and we want to finish on a very, very positive note.
"Thailand are always a good side on paper, regardless of the age level. But when it comes to final matches, I believe there are no favourites.
"It's an equal game, and playing at home we definitely want to achieve the best result," said Ong in the event that was held in Petaling Jaya on Monday.
He also added that striker Kumaahran Sathasivam; who got injured in their 1-0 semi-final win against Indonesia, is still a doubt for the final match.
The final match will be played on Tuesday, August 29 at the Shah Alam Stadium with kickoff time at 8.45 pm.
