Why Malaysia shouldn't host the world cup:
- We are going to bring in an influx of monetary gains for the economy as well as promoting Malaysia as an awesome holiday destination
- We have not been doing great in terms of improving our football team performances in the local and Asean tournaments.
- Our government has been bias in developing sports outside of our country. Only a handful of sports get the recognition.(e.g. Squash and badminton are only a handful of sports that the athletes are send overseas to train)
- Our football team has been playing the game just for the sake of making some money to bring back to their respective families. Gone are the days when the Malaysian football team go all out playing for our country Malaysia. In other words TAK ADA SEMANGAT!!!( Don't have the will). I have heard so much of the days when Malaysia football legends such as Dato Soh Chin Aun, Santokh Singh, James Wong and Hassan Sani played. I heard that our Malaysian team also qualified for the 1980 Olympics. Now it seems like a very distant memory obviously.
Why Malaysia is able to host the Commonwealth games if you are asking? It is because we have good results in some of the games that give us credibility to host. Who would in the right mind give Malaysia to host the world cup.Until we do well in the international stages, I am strongly against Malaysia hosting the world cup. Jangan buat malu boleh tak( Don't humiliate can or not?)
