Coach Tan Chang Hoe finalizes the Malaysia's squad to confront Vietnam

After destroying Sri Lanka by 6 goals, coach Tan Chang Hoe quickly closed the list of 23 players for the upcoming trip to Vietnam in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

Three faces were eliminated at the last minute in the preliminary list of 26 players including midfielder Partiban Janasekaran, Nor Azam Azih and striker Shahrel Fikri Fauzi. However, this absence does not make many Malaysian fans regret because they are lacking in experience and ability to play in the top environment like the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

In the list of coach Tan Chang Hoe, the most prominent are the four naturalized faces, including left-back La'Vere Corbin-Ong (English, 28 years old), right-back Matthew Davies (Australian, 24 years old) ), midfielder Brendan Gan (Australian, 31) and midfielder Mohamadou Sumareh (Gambian, 28).

The pillars of the Malaysian team such as central defender Shahrul Saad, midfielder Safawi Rasid, Syafiq Ahmad or striker Idlan Talaha are all on the list and are currently in high form.
