The New Zealand Under 21 Men have been edged 2-1 by hosts Malaysia at the Sultan of Johor Cup.

New Zealand opened the scoring in the ninth minute when Brad Read sent a penalty corner into the back of the net.

Malaysia created plenty of scoring opportunities in the first half but struggled to convert against the Kiwi defence.

Nik Aiman Nik Rosemi then scored from open play in the 38th minute to level the score at 1-1 before Najmi Farizal Jazlan delivered a 48th minute winner from a penalty corner.

The two sides now face a rematch late this evening in the tournament’s the 5th/6th playoff.
