Malaysia U-22 head coach Datuk Ong Kim Swee has released the names of players that he wants at his centralised camp, ahead of the AFF U-22 Championship later this month.

This time around, he is not taking any chances, and has called up key players that had been left out earlier.

The performance of his side, then composed of newcomers, in earlier camps and friendly matches has drawn concern, especially their defensive department.

For the coming training camp, he has called up Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) goalkeeper Haziq Nadzli and defender Dominic Tan, Malaysia international Syahmi Safari, as well as Hadi Fayyadh Abdul Razak, who recently signed with Fagiano Okayama in Japan, among many others. However, the names of two more JDT stars, Safawi Rasid and Akhyar Rashid are absent from the list.

But it is yet to be known whether their clubs will release the players wanted by Kim Swee, as the Malaysian football campaign has just kicked off over the previous weekend.

The camp will be held in Bukit Jalil between February 10 to 15. 23 of the the players will then head to Cambodia for the AFF U-22 Championship. In March they will take part in the 2020 AFC U-23 Championship qualifiers.
