MALAYSIA CUP GROUP A
LIONSXII v JOHOR FC
(Tomorrow, 8.45pm, Jalan Besar Stadium)
Ahead of their crucial Malaysia Cup clash with Johor FC tomorrow, one would expect tension to be riding high in the LionsXII camp. It wasn’t quite the case during training at the Jalan Besar Stadium yesterday.
And, as he swung his kit bag over the shoulder and sauntered out of the premises after the 90-minute workout, the message from vice-captain Hariss Harun (above) was simple: Chill.
Hariss' confidence stems from the return of defender Safuwan Baharudin from injury.
The LionsXII need only a point to secure top spot in Group A and advance to the last eight of the competition. A loss would probably mean the exit for a team that have targeted a place in the final at Bukit Jalil Stadium on Oct 20.
