Former Socceroo's Malaysian Cup win

Former Socceroo Robert Cornthwaite has won the Malaysia Cup with Selangor alongside ex-Melbourne Victory coach Mehmet Durakovic.

Selangor, who finished third in the 2015 Malaysian Super League, defeated second-tier champions Kedah 2-0 on Saturday to claim their first major trophy since 2010.

Durakovic, who represented the Socceroos 64 times, played for Selangor in the 1990s, winning three straight Malaysia Cups from 1995-97.

The 50-year-old became the first non-Malaysian to win the Malaysia Cup as both player and coach.

Central defender Cornthwaite started and played a full 90 minutes to claim the second major trophy of his career.


Winning the malaysian cup for the selangor fans was unbelievable. The night was made even more special sharing it with with my wife @nelican and my dad who flew in from Australia #pialamalaysia #tmpialamalaysia2015 #redgiants #RNYTWD #champions with @repostapp. ・・・ What a win! I can't believe Selangor just broke the curse and won their 33rd Malaysian Cup. I couldn't be happier for the huz! #mission33 #theredgiants #selangor #selangorfa
