Syamer boosted by two dose of big motivations

Syamer was part of the midfield trio that was tried for the first time by Tan Cheng Hoe in his reign as the head coach of the Malaysia national team. Baddrol Bakhtiar and Nor Azam Azih stood alongside Syamer as Harimau Malaya took to the field against Tajikistan at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium on Saturday.

A mixed first half saw Brendan Gan coming in at the start of the second half to replace Baddrol with Syamer entrusted to keep his spot on the pitch. And after a difficult opening 45 minutes, Syamer started to show more what he can do in the second period with some forceful runs as well as good movement in picking up empty spaces.
