Malaysian national football team-Harimau Malaya

The Malaysian national football teamrepresents Malaysia in international football and is controlled by the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM). The national team was founded in 1963 in the Merdeka tournament a month before the founding of the Malaysian Federation. The Malaysian national football team is recognized by FIFA as the successor to the late Malay national football team. The Malaysian team is nicknamed Harimau Malaya in the style of the Malayan tiger.

In addition to Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, it is one of the most successful teams in Southeast Asia, which won bronze in the 1974 Asian Games, won the 2010 ASEAN Football Championship and other competitions and improved at the same time. However, outside of Southeast Asia, Malaysia does not achieve a greater honor. Although they have taken part in the Summer Olympics and three times in the AFC Asian Cup, the team did not manage to survive the group stage.

In the FIFA World Ranking, Malaysia's highest rank was recorded in the first release of the numbers in August 1993, with 75 points. Malaysia's most important rivals on the international stage are its geographic neighbors Thailand, Indonesia and Singapore. The past games between these three teams have produced a lot of drama.

Before the founding of Malaysia on 16 September 1963, Nordborneo (now Sabah), Sarawak, Malaya and Singapore were represented with their own national teams, which anticipated the founding of Malaysia. Malaya and Singapore usually participated in an international competition such as the Merdeka tournament, while North Borneo and Sarawak participated in the Borneo Cup. Malaya's biggest achievement in football was the bronze medal at the 1962 Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia, following a 4-1 win over South Vietnam.

The winner of the first season of the Borneo Cup in 1962, North Borneo Football Team, a year before the merger to Malaysia. The beginning of the game of the Malaysia football team took place on August 8, 1963 in Merdeka Stadium with the combined strength of Singapore and Malaysia (although the association was only after September 16, 1963). With the combined forces of Malaya and Singapore, the team begins its match with Japan, thinking 3: 4 lost. The team continued to use a combination of players from Singapore and the Malay Peninsula until the establishment of the Malaysian Association with the Football Association of Malaysia as the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) succeeded. The combination of players with Singapore ended when the latter parted from Malaysia with the founding of the Singapore Football Association (FAS) and their subsequent reunification with FIFA in 1965. Since then, the squad was only represented by West Malaysian players, mainly due to difficulties of that time, the players traveled to East Malaysia, and the mainstream of West Malaysian football was not known.

Since the 2010s, expectations are rising to be successful again in the 1980s, although the team has still not made any new record. In June 2014, Dollah replaced Salleh Rajagobal as head coach after his contract expired. Dollah led Malaysia to the final of the 2014 AFF Championship, but could not repeat the same form as the previous head coach. In international matches, the coach has also suffered a defeat from 0 to 6 against Oman and Palestine and 1 to 1 draw with Timor-Leste. The 10:10 loss to the United Arab Emirates, the biggest defeat in Malaysia for 50 years, has triggered his resignation as head coach. The place was occupied by interim coach Ong Kim Swee, who later rose to the end of March 2017 as head coach. The official coaching position was then taken over by Portugal coach Nelo Vingada, hoping to boost Malaysian football's performance. On June 13, Malaysia played their first game in the AFC Asian Cup 2019 qualifier against Lebanon. Despite a 1-0 lead in the first half, they finally lost the game with a score of 1: 2. The weak performance of Malaysia, however, continued. Despite Hong Kong's hope and expectation, Malaysia drew 1-1 before losing 2-0 to the same side in Hong Kong. In terms of results, there was frustration in the team and Malaysia had two defeats in a row against North Korea, both of which ended 1-1. Malaysia also lost 2-1 to Lebanon in Beirut 2-1 with just 1 draw and 5 defeats Malaysia retired from qualifying. The coaching position was taken over at the end of 2017 by team assistant Tan Cheng Hoe after Vingada resigned after a series of poor results.

After failing to qualify for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup, Malaysia resumed its trip to the 2018 AFF Championship, where it joined forces with rival Vietnam along with Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. Malaysia performed well, winning second place with three wins and a defeat by Vietnam, notably the decisive 3-0 victory against Myanmar, which allowed the team to reach the semi-finals. By qualifying as the runners-up, Malaysia faced Thailand, the bitter rival in his long-standing head-to-head record, and the reigning champions of the tournament, beating them 2-1 in the Thai home stadium of Bangkok, playing through away goals Usually win in one of the biggest shock of the tournament, although at home 0-0 earlier draw. After qualifying for the final, they met Vietnam again and held that 2-1 home defeat before losing 1-0 at home to Hanoi, Vietnam. They then finished the tournament in second place for third place with a total score of 2: 3. Despite the defeat of the AFF Cup for the second time, Malaysia's success was evident in the emergence of new talents emerging from the development of youth football and hope brought the future of Malaysian football.
