A round of applause to Matthews Izzac and Abe Sudin!
Last year, the whole nation was delighted when commentator pair Matthews Izzac and Abe Sudin made a huge historical feat when they both were appointed as the 1st Malaysian Commentators to be selected by Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) as the Official Commentator for FIFAe Club World Cup 2021 to represent the Malaysia Commentary team for the esports tournament that commences on 24th to 28 February 2021.
On 15th June 2022, the Malaysia Book Of Records (MBOR) honoured Matthews Izzac along with Abe Sudin with the title of The First To Commentate At FIFAe Club World Cup 2021 By A Duo.
With this, Matthews has penned down an emotional note on his official social media;
From a boy who was pushed away in high school by students, teachers and people for not being academically excellent and told I’ll never have a future to a man who worked hard day and night to change that and is now a part of this country’s history (Matthews Izzac)
“To be the first Malaysian in the FIFAe Club World Cup is beyond unbelievable and upon receiving this national record title is just mind-blowing,” this dedicated man expressed.
Matthew also conveyed his heartfelt gratitude to Abe Sudin, with whom he had travelled for almost ten years.
According to a clip from TV1 which was uploaded by MBOR on their official Facebook page, Matthew said it was an unexpected moment that had never been envisioned. “Honestly, I feel very proud to be able to put our country’s name on the renowned prestigious stage,” he remarked regarding recognition by MBOR.
Once again, congratulations on securing a spot in MBOR and here’s wishing you all the best in your future endeavours, Matthew!
