Tan Cheng Hoe looks to be using the Fiji friendly as an opportunity to test new players and combinations.

Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) have today released the list of 24 players called up for national team duty in the upcoming international friendly against Fiji that is scheduled to be played at KLFA Stadium on July 5.

The players are expected to report for duty at Wisma FAM on July 1 which will exclude players whose teams will be in action in the FA Cup semi-final.

The squad selected by Tan Cheng Hoe includes 11 players that featured in the last international played in March against Bhutan.

There's a first time call-up to the senior team for Negeri Sembilan's N. Thanabalan and Kelantan's Danial Ashraf. Returning to the squad are the duo from Kedah in Syazwan Zainon and Rizal Ghazali.

A big talking point from the previous national team training camp was the release of several players based on rotation policy with Tan now deciding to recall five of those - Adam Nor Azlin, Hazwan Bakri, La'Vere Corbin-Ong, Aidil Zafuan and Rawilson Batuil.

Goalkeeper: Hafizul Hakim (Perak), Khairul Fahmi (Melaka), Ifwat Akmal (Kedah)
