For you who don't know what it is, AFF Cup is kinda like Soccer League for South East Asia. The sponsor is Suzuki (I'm not spamming here) and the tournament is held every [s]5[/s] 2 years (now is 2010, the last event is [s]1995[/s] 1998, which is won by Vietnam). Obviously, all South East Asia countries participate in this events, and the strong "past" ones are [s]Thailand, Philippines, and Vietnam[/s] Thailand, Singapore, and obviously, Vietnam as the last cup winner. Indonesia (my country) is not that weak too, they often reach semi-finals... it's just they haven't win again for quite some time now...
This week is the final (against Malaysia), and there are two matches. December 26th in Malaysia and December 29th in Indonesia. Why I'm posting this here? I'm not a big soccer fan, but this year, Indonesia soccer team (my country) suddenly got a power boost with the arrival of two new player. They are not weak before, it's just they don't have strong offensive players. That's why with the arrival of these new players, their play can get really dangerous.
BTW, both Philippines and Malaysia also got a sudden boost of power. For Philliphines, it because they have 9 additional good players just recently (they're going to be a deadly opponents at next cup). While Malaysia, I don't know...
So now my country could finally have hopes to win the cup again, after so long... Until now, they have show us a great result, defeating Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, and other countries with relative ease. They even defeat Laos [s]5-0[/s] 6-0. How can I'm not proud with them?
This final is more than a soccer team for both countries. It's a revenge event since we beat Malaysia 4-1 at last cup. And with lots of dispute between two countries lately. It's also about the pride of both countries...
Notes: My county soccer team is strong in South East Asia, but quite weak in Asia, since there are Korea, Japan, and China out there... (those are regular participants of World Cup, what do you expect?)
EDIT: some correction due to my mistake in information. Thanks to grim_reaper for correcting them.
