I’m 21 years old and i’ve been a fan of the beautiful game since i was at the tender age of 7. First game i went to was a local game between my hometown team Negeri Sembilan vs Perak which we won 5-0! That was arguably the moment that made it all for me. I love the feeling of goosebumps you get when you enter the stadium and see the stadium lights shining above your eyes, damn that raises the hair at the back of my neck. My favorite team is Selangor FA the most decorated team in the Malaysian league, never missed a home game i might add, I’m a football addict. There’s nothing that could cure this addiction, in fact football has cured me instead.

What is your favourite Copa90 video and why?

My favorite Copa90 show? Now that’s a hard question cause I love them all, no joke! Comments below and Derby Days, without these 2 shows Copa90 wouldn’t be how it is today.

What is the best football game you have seen and why?

The best football game that i’ve been to is probably the Malaysia Cup final between two of my hometowns which is Negeri Sembilan and Kelantan. Holy fvck now that was the game to be at during 2007. Flares,fireworks,stadium seats on fire,tifos being torn apart! What else could you ask for in a tense cup final! That was the best game i’ve ever been to and Negeri Sembilan won which made it even sweeter.

What is your favourite football snack?

My favorite football snack is definitely Lays chips. Can’t go on watching a game without them. Original flavor please!

Who is your footballing idol?

My football idol? Simple, Leonel Messi, no need to say anything more.
