My Dinh stadium sold is awaiting Malaysia in the conflict against Vietnam, but the center of Malaysia back is not unusably worried about the noise from the stands.
There was a great fanfare that was welcomed by the Malaysian team from the moment they touched in Hanoi, Vietnam on Wednesday afternoon. Domestic media were in full force not only at the airport, but also in training later in the evening, when Malaysia expanded its legs after three hours of travel from Kuala Lumpur.

Vietnam opened the campaign with a 0-3 win over Laos in Vientiane and is expected to begin the match against Malaysia as favorites for the win. Great pressure will make up for the defending of Malaysia and Shahrul Saad in the strong place, considered it all part of the game.
"The game against Vietnam will be very difficult. The defense is getting better because we are all dedicated to the task and we have to be more discipline from the front to the back."
"Everyone is ready for the tournament and this match. Perhaps they have a full stadium, but the players are accustomed to it and we hope that we can win the victory in Malaysia.

After playing for Perak for 80,000 people in the recent cup final in Malaysia, Shahrul can certainly follow the conversation about the atmosphere created by a partisan domestic audience that is not a problem. Others, such as Khairul Fahmi, Aidil Zafuan, Norshahrul Idlan Talaha and Zakuan Adha, also experienced similar scenarios.
But this will be a new experience for most other probable starters. Up to the 25-year-old Shahrul and the aforementioned players play a tip and leads his colleagues.
Malaysia is currently at the top of the group with maximum points from two matches, but Vietnam is behind purely because they have played only one match so far.
