Malaysian fan who shone a laser pointer to the Singaporean goalkeeper identified (His name is ... )

The shameful Malaysian fan who might fancy himself as a Green Lantern (hur hur) was identified. Alas, there is no name mentioned in the article, "Laser pointer culprit identified". C'mon! He ought to be caned for failing his power ring to distract the willpower of the Singapore goalkeeper, Izwan Mahbud.

Singapore have gone through to the third round of the Asian Zone World Cup Qualifiers.

They drew 1-1 with Malaysia in the Return Leg match at the Bukit Jalil stadium in KL, winning 6-4 on aggregate.

Malaysia took the lead in th 57th minute with a goal from Mohamed Safee.

But Singapore's Xi Jiayi equalised with a neatly placed finish in the 72nd minute.

Around 600 Singaporeans made their way to the 85 000 capacity stadium in KL.

A Malaysia fan shone a laser pointer into the eyes of Singapore goalkeeper Izwan Mahbud during last night's World Cup Qualifier showdown. Video footage taken during the match clearly shows the green glare of the pointer on his face.

The match is the second meeting between the two sides in the run-up to World Cup 2014, which saw Singapore through to the next qualifying round with a 1-1 draw. Their first meeting on July 23 was a 5-3 victory for the Lions.

A similar incident had occurred during Malaysia's Suzuki cup meeting with Indonesia which led to the Indonesian team walking out temporarily during the match. The Malaysians went on to win the match 3-0.

The video of the unscrupulous fan's attempt to sabotage Singapore's goalkeeper was uploaded onto, where it sparked outrage among viewers.

According to the submitter of the video:

"Fans at the Bukit Jalil Stadium were shining a laser light in the face of the Singapore goalkeeper Izwan Mahbud.

"This was during the Malaysia vs. Singapore 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifier, held at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, on July 28."

Here's the YouTube clip showcasing the shame of Malaysian fan:

"Taken from a Malaysian Newspaper, Sinar Harian.

"The title of this news was in Malay but I'll try translate it using my epic fail Malay, it's 'Singaporean Players act too much'.

"It briefly said that Singapore players act worse than all the well-known divers in football like Cristiano Ronaldo.

"And it never states anything about their 'epic laser showcase' .

"Oh well, but still, we won and they didn't."

Partially quoted from STOMP, "Sour grapes! Malaysia paper says Lions 'dive' worse than Ronaldo". (30/07/11)
