Naypyitaw: All eyes will be on the national Under-23 team when they start their SEA Games gold medal defence against Brunei in their Group A opener at the Zeyar Thiri Stadium on Tuesday.
National Under-23 coach Datuk Ong Kim Swee could not asked for an easier opponent for their opening match. Brunei were thrashed 7-0 by Vietnam in their opener on Sunday and the oil-rich Sultanate side have never beaten the Malaysians.
Kim Swee, however, has warned his side not to look down on Brunei.
“We must think of getting full points first instead of going for a big win,” said Kim Swee.
“We can’t afford to be complacent. Singapore were held to a 1-1 draw by 10-man Laos on Sunday. It goes to show that all the teams, including the so-called minnows, have prepared well for the Games.
