Coach Maloney said: "We had a lot of difficulties meeting Thailand, but Malaysia U19 showed their bravery. We just need a draw but always want to win. We have done a good job with our own philosophy".

Appreciating the success of Mr. Brad Maloney and his team, Malaysia coach Tan Cheng Hoe affirmed that the 'senior' will follow the Malaysia U19 to defeat Thailand at the 2022 World Cup Qualifier.
