Amidst Selection Woes, Harimau Malaya Aim To Surprise at the 2022 AFF Championship

International football is set to go on after a climatic Qatar World Cup, with what's billed as the "ASEAN World Cup" - the 14th edition of the recently rebranded AFF Mitsubishi Electric Cup set to run tonight all through mid-January. With Malaysia kick-starting their campaign v Myanmar - the narrative heading into the tournament was disheartening to say the least. With it not being in the FIFA footballing calendar, national stalwarts either weren't allowed to link up with the squad or rejected call-ups due to personal reasons. This resulted in head-coach Kim Pang-gon choosing an exciting but left-field 23-man squad with the likes of naturalized/heritage players such as David Rowley, Lee Tuck, Sergio Aguero alongside fresh young local faces like KL City ace Haqimi Rosli raring to make their major tournament debut. How deep a run can KPG bring this team especially with the likes of Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia all traditional heavyweights? This episode, we preview the tournament & dissect the Malaysian selection.
