Last Wednesday I attended the first final of the AFF Suzuki Cup. In a sold out stadium 50.000 visitors saw how Thailand dominated Malaysia and beated them 2-0. At times Thailand even played Futsal which was a sight for sore eyes.
In the second final, which was played yesterday evening in Kuala Lumpur, Thailand quickly came arrear 2-0. When Malaysia even scored the 3-0 in the second half it became a tough job. It was a great relief when Thailand came back to 3-2 and therefore could take home the Suzuki Cup to Thailand after 12 years.
For the Football Association of Thailand this is a tremendous end of this year’s season; Suzuki Cup, Women Football for the first time in history to next year’s World Championships in Canada and we with Futsal winning two tournaments. Hopefully this will carry on in 2015!
