Football: LionsXII dumped out of Malaysia Cup q-finals by ATM after 4-1 thrashing
After the high of winning the Malaysian Super League (MSL), the LionsXII were dumped out of the Malaysia Cup in the quarter-finals after a 4-1 hammering by ATM in Selayang.
Dangerman Marlon James is the chief tormentor with a hat-trick that gave the Malaysian military football side a 4-2 aggregate win.
In a disastrous display, the LionsXII's collapse started in the 22nd minute when midfielder Hariss Harun sliced the ball into his own net after James' cross from the right.
The 1.88m-tall striker then pounced on a defensive error from Baihakki Khaizan, evaded a tackle from Safuwan Baharudin before slotting past Izwan Mahbud in the 32nd minute.
