Cheng Hoe hails Malaysia's performance in 'one of best games of 2019'

Malaysia head coach Tan Cheng Hoe has praised the performances of his players in their 2-1 Group G World Cup Asian qualification win against Thailand on Thursday.

J1 League star Chanathip Songkrasin opened the scoring for the visitors at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium as early as the seventh minute, but the favourites would end up being overwhelmed by the Harimau Malaya, through goals by Brendan Gan (26') and Mohamadou Sumareh (57').

When fielding questions from the reporters after the match, Cheng Hoe hailed his charges for putting in their best performance against a tough opponent.
