Faizal Saari doubled his account on 31st when

he converted a penalty corner (4-0).

Shahril Saabah, who worked hard, came in action on 35th minute with a close range hit to make the tally 5-0. Malaysia became more serious to push their lead bigger and  Fazal Saari completed his hat-trick on 41st minute and this time Najmi Jazlan provided the ball (6-0).

Ramadan Rosli closed the sheet joining in the celebration when pushed a close range hit just few seconds before the final siren (7-0). China had a solace of reducing one goal when Wenhui scored the lone goal for the team on 56th minute (1-7).                 

SOUTH KOREA Win

Later defending champions South Korea began their Hero Asia Cup campaign in style when they downed Oman by 7-2 after trailing by a goal in the day’s second match. Oman stunned all halting the holders in the first quarter and took lead in the third minute of the second quarter.

But the mighty Korea strongly bounced back and scored seven goals to down Oman by 7-2.     

Rashad Fazari broke the deadlock of the match to lead Oman on 18th minute.

Lee Mookyoung levelled it for Korea on 22nd while Namyong Lee scored twice and Chosukhoon, Seungil Lee, Jihunyang, Jonghyung and Namyong Lee added one goal each.

Oman Asad Mubark reduced another one for Oman.
