Stranger In My Own Land

Soccer is just one of those things that can make me feel like I’m
living in a foreign land. The cheer is always louder for the
visiting team than our own national team for some reason,
despite playing on our own turf. In tonight’s Tiger Cup semi
final match, I guess it’s quite acceptable since there are quite
a number of “expatriates” from the visiting team’s country living
here. When Manchester United or the Brazillian soccer team came
some time ago though, I sure as heck was stumped figuring out
whether Mancunians or Brazillians have decided to settle in our
country by the boatloads as well. Must be tough playing in the
Malaysian soccer team. Every game will either be an away game or
feels like an away game.

    True, true. Look at matches involving teams from overseas. But then, our own teams have to improve and win back the fans.
