KUALA LUMPUR: Tomorrow has been declared a public holiday to celebrate Malaysia’s first ever victory in the Asean Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup championship.
The Prime Minister made the announcement last night.
Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak also congratulated the Malaysian football team for making the country proud.
“Well done, Malaysian Tigers! You played well as a team and have made your country very proud. Congratulations!” Najib wrote in his Twitter yesterday.
Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin also praised the team, saying: “The victory proves that nothing is impossible if we truly want to win.”
MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said the victory was a timely boost to Malaysian football and all Malaysians were united in cheering the team.
Good Job at winning the cup. We should win more so that we can have more public holiday then :P (not that we don't have enough of it)
