Chelsea fail to spark in Malaysia

Chelsea's Florence Malouda is tightly marked by Malaysian players during their match at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil on Thursday. Chelsea won 1-0.

English giants Chelsea failed to shine under new boss Andre Villas-Boas Thursday in a friendly against Malaysia that was marred by racial abuse towards their Israeli midfielder Yossi Benayoun at Bukit Jalil
Unlike rivals Arsenal and Liverpool, who handed the Malaysian national side a firm beating, Chelsea struggled to break down a stubborn Malaysian Selection side made up of mostly Olympic Under-23 players.
It took a controversial goal by Didier Drogba in the 80th minute, from a free-kick, as the London side belatedly broke the deadlock at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium in Malaysia's capital Kuala Lumpur.
However, replays showed that the ball, which hit the post before bouncing off Malaysian goalie Mohamad Izham Tarmizis back, did not cross the line.
Malaysia then had a glorious opportunity to equalise in the 85th minute, but A. Thamil Arasu shot wide after being put through with only the goalkeeper to beat.
