MALAYSIA lost 2-1 to China in the final of the Four-Nation in Dalian, China yesterday.
The Chinese took a 2-0 lead after scoring off a penalty stroke and a field attempt, while Tajol Rosli narrowed the gap for Malaysia in the second half.
Malaysia had beaten Russia 3-2 and Pakistan 3-0 to reach the final.
“The penalty stroke came about after a China penalty corner attempt was saved with a hockey stick, but the umpire felt it hit a players leg.
“After that goal, Malaysia pushed forward and China countered with a field attempt to make it 2-0. Our players had bombed many sitters after narrowing the gap, and lost grip of the match,” said team manager George Koshy.
The national team are preparing for the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi where they are in Group A with Australia, Pakistan, India and Scotland.
In Group B are England, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and Trinidad and Tobago.
In the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games, Malaysia won the bronze medal.
