WRONG FOR ORGANISERS BANK ON MESSI THEN SAY HE'S NOT COMING

A football fan felt cheated that Messi will not be playing in tonight's match despite repeated assurance that he will turn up. He blamed the organisers for not having integrity and by making use of Messi's star-draw to make money. "Promoting the match using his undisputed star-draw, then belatedly and limply attributing his absence to "personal reasons", without even a cursory attempt at an explanation, displays an alarming lack of integrity and competence, and a blatant disrespect for football fans on the part of the organisers. It has been widely reported that Messi was preparing for his wedding at the end of this month. Surely a responsible organiser would have scrupulously confirmed if he would be part of the game."

Since August, the Malaysian government had increased toll charges for all vehicles, except motorcycles, travelling from Singapore to Johor through the Causeway, and introduced a new Causeway toll for all vehicles travelling from Johor to Singapore. Those travelling from Johor to Singapore previously paid no tolls.
