Asia Tour 2011: Chelsea vs Malaysia XI

July 22, 2011 § 2 Comments

Chelsea had to labour for 80 minutes before a controversial free-kick goal from Didier Drogba gave them a 1-0 win. However, replays showed that the ball, which hit the post before bouncing off Malaysian goalkeeper Mohd Izham Tarmizi’s back, did not cross the line. Chelsea’s much maligned striker Fernando Torres came close to opening the scoring as early as the third minute but muffed his attempt. Midfielder Frank Lampard also missed a sitter in the 16th minute after defender S. Subra-maniam’s poor clearance fell into his path. Wan Zack Haikal Wan Nor had the best chance to score for Malaysia in the first half. He broke through in the 27th minute and had only Chelsea goalkeeper Henrique Hilario to beat but was flagged offside. In the 42nd minute, Lampard had the best chance of the game after Salomon Kalou sliced open the Malaysian defence with a wonderful pass but the midfielder failed to connect with the ball.
