Let's Play A Game

The game is called, "guess who's our next opponent here in Slovakia?"

Opening Against Partizanske

7th August 2007 – The Malaysian national Under-23 team will begin their tour of Slovakia with a match against Second Division side Partizanske tomorrow.

Head coach B. Sathianathan said that with the cancellation of the game against Vion FC – following the latter’s qualification into the EUFA Cup – the decision has been made to confirm three other matches against First Division teams from Slovakia.

“The team is training into its sixth day here with the weather warm and dry,” said Sathianathan (pic).

“Training emphasis is on physical work in the morning with the afternoon spent on tactical. Norfarhan (Mohamad) is injured from an old injury and he is getting his treatment here.”

Apart from the game against Partizanske tomorrow, the First Divisions matches for the U23 team are Nitra (10th August), Sala FC (14th August) and Slovan Bratislava (15th August).

“After looking at their League games, I am very sure that the above teams are very strong and will test our players to the maximum,” added Sathianathan.

“I am going to test all the players and pick my probable team for the games against Sala FC on the 14th.”
