Received a free ticket to catch the Chelsea match against Malaysia. Took a motorbike ride there and was greeted by a throng of Malaysian and Chelsea fans at the stadium
There was a sea of blue and yellow in every direction and the stadium was nearly filled up to it's brim
Players walking out into the pitch

And of course the bad boy of Chelsea, Mr Anelka
The Malaysian team made a total of 11 substitution, practically replacing everyone in the team. And there seemed to be no way Chelsea was going to penetrate the Malaysian's defence.
So ended up, it was the most BORING football match ever. Both sides did not press hard enough and both sides were making mistakes left and right. But i got to say the Malaysian keeper was top notch, thwarting many attempts by Chelsea players to get on to the score sheet.
So great job Malaysian team, play like this but with more tenacity, and I am pretty sure we might qualify for the world cup :D
An appreciation to their fans from the Chelsea players.
