CHANGSHU -- The hopes of Malaysia making a positive start to the AFC U23 Championship in China suffered a serious blow in their opening game on Wednesday evening as Ong Kim Swee's side were on the wrong side of a 4-1 thrashing by a ruthless Iraq.

Safawi Rashid scored late in the game for the Southeast Asian side, but it was little more than a consolation.

Goals from Mohammed Jaffal, Amjed Attwan, Alaa Mwahi and Hussain Ali gave the nation from west Asia all three points in the Group C encounter.

CHANGSHU -- Ong Kim Swee believes his Malaysia team can spring a surprise during the country's debut appearance at the AFC U23 Championship as they prepare to play former champions Iraq in China on Wednesday.

Malaysia face a potentially daunting task having been drawn to take on Saudi Arabia and Jordan as well as the Iraqis, and the step up in class is not lost on coach Ong as he readies his team to face the 2013 winners.

"We can't deny that Iraq is a very good team, based on their record in youth...

Jason Dasey and John Wilkinson debate whether or not Malaysia can make a big impression at the U23 Asian Championships.

Despite being drawn in a tough Group C along with Iraq, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, Adam Nor Azlin believes Malaysia will be able to give a good account of themselves at this week's 2018 AFC Under-23 Championship in China.

The Malaysians will face 2013 champions Iraq in their opening match in Changshu on Wednesday.

Making their tournament debut, the Young Tigers surprisingly topped their qualification group, featuring hosts and fellow qualifiers Thailand, Indonesia and Mongolia last July.

Iraq have 'done homework' on Malaysia at AFC U23 Championship

Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts break down Malaysia U23's upcoming fixtures against Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Jordan.
PJ Roberts delves into JDT's recent signings that will strengthen the Malaysian champions in 2018.

Iraq Under-23 coach Abdul Ghani insists he is not underestimating Malaysia as his side prepare to take on the Young Tigers on Matchday One of the AFC U23 Championship in China.

Ong Kim Swee's Malaysia are certainly the underdogs, with Saudi Arabia and Jordan the other teams in Group C.

However, Ghani believes the fact that the Malaysians are there on merit ensures his side will face a tough task on Wednesday.

"We have done our homework on Malaysia," Ghani said, as reported in The New Straits Times....

Syria can learn from Iraq to upset Socceroos in World Cup playoff

Tim Cahill discusses his new role with Australia and praises Thailand's resilience in their World Cup Qualifier.

Australia were full of confidence when they arrived at their first Asian Cup in 2007, with talk of winning the tournament undefeated. A loss in the second game against Iraq quickly put paid to that ambition, while providing an instant dose of humility.

The Lions of Mesopotamia had talent, yet were not one of the favourites. With the homeland torn apart by invasion and war, preparations had been poor. Yet despite, or some would say because of the difficulties, a resilient Iraq went on to lift the...
