Football:  Second Leg of Tiger Cup Series Between Malaysia, Indonesia Postponed

The second leg of the Tiger Cup men's football semifinal between Malaysia and Indonesia has been postponed due to the recent earthquake and tsunami that devastated parts of Southern Asia.

The ASEAN Football Federation said the match, originally scheduled for Saturday, will now occur Tuesday in Kuala Lumpur.

Officials made the decision after Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi ordered the cancellation of all New Year's festivities to mourn those killed in the tsunami.

Malaysia beat Indonesia 2-1 in this week's first leg of the semifinal in Jakarta.
