Big Chile bungle...

An embarrassing moment unfurled at the UC Dublin grounds on Sunday when the organizers of the Olympic Qualifier played the Malaysian national anthem for Chile before their match against South Korea.
The Chile players were shocked, but kept their composure and stood still, while the 20-odd Malaysians at the stands took the opportunity to sing the Negaraku loudly to the amazement of the Irish crowd.
The Negaraku was played in full, and after it ended, the Chile players were seen talking to the umpires, but they decided to start the match anyway.
Interestingly, the Negaraku inspired the Chile players to hold Korea to for 30 minutes, before the Koreans could crack open the goalmouth.
