Malaysia vs Thailand
Shah Alam Stadium is voted as the home of the men’s 2017 Kuala Lumpur (KL2017) final between Malaysia and Thailand on Tuesday (29 August).
The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) announced the place after the coordination meeting chaired by Secretary General of the Youth and Sports Ministry (KBS), Datuk Lokman Hakim Ali this morning.
“The SEA 2017 men’s final match between Malaysia and Thailand will be held at Shah Alam Stadium with a ticket price of RM21.20 (including GST),” said the statement.
The match will start at 8.45pm.
Previously, the event that offers women all medals is scheduled to be held at the Bukit Jalil Stadium if the national team will play in the final.
Malaysia confirmed the spot in the final after beating Indonesia 1-0 in the semi-finals yesterday. Thailand also qualified for the final after beating Myanmar 1-0 in the semi-finals.
Meanwhile, a bronze medal match between Myanmar and Indonesia will be held at the Selayang Municipal Council Stadium (MPS) at 4.30pm on the same day.
Thailand, 15-time champion, is awaiting Saturday’s semi-finals last Saturday between Malaysia and Indonesia. The final match will be played on Tuesday.
Before the game started, a minute of silence was observed as national team official Nattapong Somsinsawas of Thailand and Klidlangsmorn Kasidet, who died on Friday after a car accident.
The semi-finals are the final birthday of the 2015 SEA Games which Thailand firmly won 3-0 but there is a feeling that this is the same meeting.
Myanmar before their 3-1 defeat to Malaysia in their last Group A match, was impressive in the early stages while Thailand only showed their real potential in the second week of the tournament.
That’s all the business from the first whistle with Myanmar forces the corner in the first 60 seconds, an early warning to Thailand that they mean business.
Thailand, however, was not surprised and got their first appearance in the seventh minute but M. Rattanakorn sent his free kick from the left sail to the Myanmar bar.
Myanmar responded with their own efforts, with Yan Naing Oo forcing Nont Muangngam save, with Thai goalkeeper recovering safely to collect the next cross.
The real possibility of the first match fell to Thailand in the 13th minute.
It was a result of an excellent passing step involving captain Samhaodi, who played the ball for S. Nattawut, who ruled it with a chest before releasing it to Chaiyawat Buran Road but was tired, the ball struck left straight before playing.

Thailand, however, nearly closed half on high but Chaiyawat obviously failed to get his target.
If Myanmar started the first half with an aggressive note, it was Thailand’s turn to do so when the match returned and Chaiyawat was disappointed not to get his target after Myanmar goalkeeper Sann Sat Naing failed to clear the cross.
Myanmar’s welcome came in the 50th minute when Htike Aung forced Thailand’s goalkeeper to do his best to save a free kick from 30 yards.
Seven minutes later, Than Paing of Myanmar had looked into the goal but failed to goal.
At the same time, both teams took a cautious approach but Thailand’s successor, H. Sasalak was supposed to open the net but could only score a goal after hitting the ball in the 84th minute.
Thailand, however, continued to stumble and silence, Suriya Singmui crossed to the Myanmar penalty area and Samhaodi rose high and directed his team to the SEA final.
