Malaysia 2-0 Indonesia: Safawi Rasid scores a brace as Malaian Tigers comes second

Malaysia has successfully taken advantage of the home field Bukit Jalil to win 3 points against Indonesia in the 2022 FIFA World Cup / 2023 Asian Cup qualifiers. However, this is not an easy match for Malaysia, when coach Tan Cheng Hoe has difficulty in deploying attacks.
