After the Bukit Jalil Stadium was stagnant until the water had to be pushed away during the Malaysia Bahrain match. This is TMJ’s solid comment on the stadium issue

Kuala Lumpur: When the Bukit Jalil National Stadium (SNBJ) is labeled as one of the most beautiful and modern venues in the region, the situation is actually far from the technical facilities available at the stadium.

It was after the stadium staff was seen having to use a garbage shovel and hard white paper which is usually used to sweep the garbage instead of being used to remove stagnant water on the field surface at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium.

The situation is actually embarrassing when supposedly water -pushing machinery can be used as is practiced by most stadiums around the world.

This is not a rare situation at this stadium because before this, some friendly matches and the finals of the Malaysia League had faced the problem of stagnant water following the heavy rain that fell before the action.

Imagine stadium staff having to push water using a garbage shovel which takes quite a long time compared to if using a faster and more effective water pushing machine or machine.

Malaysia is scheduled to play against Bahrain in the second match of Group E of the 2023 Asian Cup Qualifiers tonight.

However, the heavy rain that fell for an hour saw the surface of the field stagnate and it took time to wait for the water to recede.

Meanwhile, the Owner of JDT, Tengku Mahkota Johor shared in his IG story about the techniques used at the Larkin Stadium in avoiding floods in the field.

The cost of the drainage system is not more than RM300K

Good Night

Finally, with a beautiful field backdrop, TMJ said good night to all

The Malayan Tigers lost to Bahrain

Meanwhile, Malaysia chose a difficult path to the 2023 Asian Cup after losing 1-2 to Bahrain in the second match of Group E of the 2023 Asian Cup qualifiers at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, here, just now.

The defeat at the hands of the 89th ranked team in the world saw the Malayan Tigers squad forced to relinquish their Group E championship status to Bahrain who collected a maximum of six points from two matches.

Only the top five runners -up will get automatic slots into next year’s Asian Cup competition.

Playing on a rickshaw field clearly gave an advantage to Malaysia who showed more aggressive action in the first half when Bahrain struggled.

Bahrain were anxious in the first five minutes after the Malayan Tigers launched a series of attempts to test Sayed Mohamed Abbas’ control goal.

Starting with Akhyar Rashid’s attempt in the 2nd minute, followed by Junior Eldstal’s best chance in the 4th minute but was saved by Sayed before Nazmi Faiz Mansor’s attempt in a good position missed a minute later.

Once again, the opportunity was blocked for Malaysia in the 14th minute through a chaotic situation in front of goal as a result of a free kick but as if no luck, Junior’s shot this time soared high.

Sayed continued to excel in ‘closing’ his goal and despite facing Akhyar in a one-on-one situation in the 30th minute, Sayed managed to read the national striker’s attempt when he deflected the player’s shot.

Bahrain continued the fight in the second half through a ‘spoiled’ attempt from Komail Hasan Al Aswad but the ball was calmly hugged by Farizal Marlias.

The Bukit Jalil National Stadium seemed to collapse in the 55th minute when Ahmad Khuzaimi Piee’s cross from the left wing was completed by Mohamadou Sumareh for the opening goal of the Malayan Tigers squad.

However, ‘it was supposed to be hot until the evening, apparently it was raining at noon’. The 1-0 lead lasted just two minutes when Ali Haram tied the score for Bahrain for his second personal goal of the qualifying campaign this time around.

Farizal’s mistake that hit the Bahrain player in the 80th minute paid off when Bahrain were awarded a penalty kick which was easily completed by Abdulla Yusuf Helal for Bahrain’s winning goal.
