The Legend-Our own immortals,Mokhtar Dahari aka SuperMokh

Special tribute to SuperMokh,Committed to the Game

SuperMokh,the legend whom we missed so much
with his sheer determinations,self-focused,well disciplined footballers
that everyone of us still remember his skills and techniques,speed and dribbling ability.
He was the best and finest striker ever had by Malaysia and one of the best in Asia in his era,perhaps one of the best in the world, great players that would not have chance to fulfill his destiny playing World Cup same the likes as Ryan Giggs,or George Best.

He was only 19 years old when first played for Malaysia,which nowadays people would call it as wonderkids or outstanding prodigy.

His goals in 1975 match stunned the English FA Cup winners that time,Arsenal comprise of players like Rimmer,Mancini,Storey & Kidd with Malaysia won the game with 2-0.
It was rumored that he was offered to play for Gunners,some would say with then Italian giant,Udinese,but he refused which till now no one could ever confirmed it.
One thing that we need to keep in mind that,his records 125 goals in 167 caps for Malaysia was too phenomenal , the only footballer was conferred National Sportsman award.

He also famously scored a goal in a 1-1 draw against England national football team's B team in 1978, dribbling past half of the opposing team coached by Bobby Robson. Paul Mariner was on the scoresheet for England that day (wikipedia)

Photos taken during match between Selangor selection against Boca Juniors,whereby Boca won the game with 2-1 scores.

Exchanging door gifts happened between SuperMokh and Diego Armando Maradona

Some part of documentaries about him made by Tv3 and edited by football lovers like me(credit to him).

When will we see again the same players like his mould?

When shall we have the same strong line-up like in the glories era where we were all intimidated by other nations whenever they meeting us?
