Malaysia were heartbroken as they went down via a penalty shootout to New Zealand in the bronze medal match of the Azlan Shah Cup.

 

It was Fitri Saari who missed the crucial fifth shoot out and that gave the Kiwis a 5-4 win after the match in regulation time had ended 3-3.

 

It was a remarkable performance from the 13tj ranked team defied odds to hold the 8th ranked team to a 3-3 draw.

 

Malaysia took the lead in the 7th minute through a brilliant individual effort by Ramadhan Rosli.

 

Ramadhan dribbled past Arun Penchea before drawing out keeper Devon Manchester to slot home from an acute angle.

 

After messing their first penalty corner, Malaysia struck again in the 11th minute.

 

This time the hard work was done by Firhan Ashaari who eliminated three defenders before laying a pass to Fitri Saari for a world class finish into the roof of the net.

 

But New Zealand took control of the match and Hayden Phillips pulled one back with a stunning reverse hit in the 27th minute.

 

The Kiwis drew level in the 43rd minute through a penalty corner by Kane Russel.

 

However within seconds Malaysia regained the lead through Shahril Saabah.

 

A minute before full time Kane scored the third to make it 3-3.

 

Although the Kiwis had chances to score, it was a tale of missed chances and  the shootout decided the outcome.
