Malaysia ended 2019 on a high, back-to-back wins against Tajikistan, Thailand and Indonesia allowing them to move up the FIFA rankings to 154th place. But more importantly, the two latter wins allowed them to end the year in second place, in Group G of the World Cup Asian qualification.

Their odds of reaching the next phase of the World Cup qualifiers are realistically slim, but the inclusion of naturalised midfielder Liridon Krasniqi may just tip the balance in the Harimau Malaya's favour, in their three remaining group matches; against UAE, Vietnam and Thailand.

Tan Cheng Hoe's men must ensure that the good individual forms displayed by plenty of them will be carried forward into this year, while making sure that their characteristic errors are minimised, when facing off against the three better-ranked teams.

Following the Covid-19 lockdown, the qualifiers are expected to resume later this year, with Malaysia also scheduled to play in at least one friendly match.
