Malaysia slide below Singapore to record low of 174th in FIFA rankings

After Malaysia failed to win a single game in 2017, Jason Dasey and John Wilkinson assess Nelo Vingada's future.

Malaysia's miserable year got even worse as they fell four places, below Singapore, and dropped to an all-time low FIFA ranking of 174.

The Harimau Malaya have failed to win a single match in 2017 and recently suffered back-to-back 4-1 defeats to North Korea to crash out of contention in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup qualifiers.

The Koreans rose a remarkable 18 places and now sit above all Southeast Asian nations on 114.

Singapore midfielder Hariss Harun to benefit from MSL rule at JDT

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and Dez Corkhill discuss Kelantan's great escape from relegation and prospects for the 2018 season.

The Malaysian Super League (MSL) is following Thailand's lead by introducing a squad place for an ASEAN player, in addition to three foreigners and one Asian.

After the Football Malaysia LLP (FMLLP) endorsed the change in policy on Sunday, the new rule will come into effect from the 2018 season, and will be in place for at least five years.

Jose Mourinho couldn't prevent Malaysia Asian Cup defeats - Satia

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and Dez Corkhill discuss Kelantan's great escape from relegation and prospects for the 2018 season.
Malaysia midfielder Brendan Gan opens up about his recovery from knee injury, free agency and his ambition for a comeback.

Former Malaysia head coach B. Satianathan has called on fans to get behind Nelo Vingada by insisting that not even Jose Mourinho could have led the Harimau Malaya to victories over North Korea and Lebanon.

Vingada has come in for a lot of criticism since back-to-back 4-1 defeats to the North Koreans saw them crash out of contention for a place at the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. The qualifying campaign has seen the Malaysians take just one point from five games in a group that also features Lebanon and Hong...

Hong Kong fans renew anthem protest despite AFC punishment warning

Hong Kong vs. China
Hong Kong fans again jeered the anthem against Lebanon.

Hong Kong fans again defied the threat of punishment from the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) on Tuesday when they jeered the Chinese national anthem ahead of the Asian Cup qualifying defeat to Lebanon.

Last month, the AFC warned that the Hong Kong Football Association (HKFA) risked punishment if fans continued to boo "The March of the Volunteers" after it was jeered ahead of the meeting with Malaysia.

Before the match against Lebanon, some fans turned their back on flag as the anthem was played.

Sundram to focus on AFF Suzuki Cup for Singapore after winless 2017

Jason Dasey and John Wilkinson mull over the implications should the S.League take a one-year break in 2018.

Coach V. Sundramoorthy is now looking ahead to the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup after Singapore failed in their quest to qualify for the 2019 Asian Cup.

Despite getting their qualifying campaign off to an encouraging start with a 0-0 draw away to Bahrain, the Lions struggled for more positive results.
