That will be the correct terminology to describe the scene outside the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil last night when Malaysia took on Jamaica in a friendly international to prepare for the Asia Cup.

With the match already underway (kick off was 8.35pm as opposed to the normal 8.45pm), several thousand fans lost their cool as there was only one location selling tickets. Hence they broken down the gate and gained entry.

Hopefully the fans will show the same drive to support the team when the Asia Cup gets underway on July 10 with Malaysia taking on China in the opening match. For the record Malaysia lost 2-0 to Jamaica. The first half performance was scrappy but the Malaysian team put up a much improved performance in the second 45 minutes but were unlucky not to score despite creating several chances.
