by Pang Tun Yau · 3 weeks ago · 5 Comments · 3.5k views

Earlier this morning, Germany won the World Cup, beating Argentina via Mario Gotze’s goal scored in the 23rd minute of extra time. Many claimed it was a goal worthy of winning football’s greatest prize, crafted by a young man destined for greatness. For Gotze, this could only have been written in the stars.

Or was it? A Twitter account claims to have mentioned the exact sequence of events that unfolded at the Maracana stadium early this morning, where the account tweeted that Germany would not only win the World Cup, but also have a goal scored in the second half of extra time, and that Gotze would score it – close to a full 12 hours before the match started.

[Update 3 @ July 10, 12:43pm] After drawing ire from the Prime Minister Najib Razak, Bung Moktar has finally apologised for his tweet. Read more for details.

[Update 2 @ July 10, 12:37am] Unsurprisingly, the sheer virality of the news has gained international attention. Read more below.

[Update] The German Ambassador to Malaysia has condemned Bung Moktar’s Hitler reference. More below.

In case you missed the big news from the World Cup in Brazil early this morning, the first semi-final match between Germany and Brazil saw the European giants humbling the host nation 7-1, in one of the most shocking football results in recent times. Naturally, Germany supporters were elated at not only reaching the World Cup final, but also in the manner of reaching it.

Unfortunately, some fans can and do go a little overboard at times like these. It’s mostly harmless when someone like you and I share victorious status updates, but when you’re an MP and you make a reference to a dark side of world history…that’s another story. Case in point: controversial Member of Parliament Bung Moktar.

It’s a phenomenon that happens every four years (actually, make that two – the Euro Championships cause this as well): strong adult men who laugh in the face of viruses and are almost never sick, suddenly and mysteriously calling in sick repeatedly for one month. Some call it footballitis; but it looks like the Malaysian Prime Minister has coined a term that will be used very often from today onwards.

world-cup-2014-logo

With the majority of matches happening from 4am Malaysian time, the 2014 World Cup presents quite a challenge for many Malaysians. With matches ranging from 12 (comfortable for most Malaysians familiar with the English football league) stretching all the way into the dawn, you’ll need to pick and choose matches to view carefully.

But sometimes, most fans will just go into hardcore mode, thinking that this is an occasion that only happens every four years so it’s best to make the most of it…and watch every single match they can keep their eyes open for. Naturally, they’ll need some incentive to stay awake; some activities to do during that hour-long break between the 12am and 3am games could help, too. What if we told you there are some local games out there that not only help you while away the time, but tap into your well of football knowledge and potentially win yourself some lucrative prizes?

FIFA World Cup 2014 Matches Will Not Be Streamed Through Its Online Channels Says RTM

by Chief Chapree · 2 months ago · 3 Comments · 27.5k views

RTM Mystream

As the only official broadcaster of FIFA World Cup 2014 for terrestrial TV in Malaysia, RTM will be showing 24 live matches and 11 delayed telecasts through TV1 and TV2 as well as TVi (Astro’s channel 180). Since all three channels are also available online for free, we are not surprised if some users have planned to catch these 35 World Cup matches through those online channels.

Well, we hate to burst your bubbles but unfortunately, you can’t.
