The centre back had very little to do, but could not help Malaysia keep a clean sheet.

The heritage player's second Malaysia match ended with him netting a second international goal, on a night the left back did not have a lot to do defensively.

Akram Mahinan - 7/10

The midfielder did not have a tough time, on a night the opposition did more defending than attacking.

Azam Azih - 7/10

The midfielder had a relateively easy night out against the minnows, and recorded an assist.

Mohamadou Sumareh - 7/10
