Malaysia likely to focus on defence against UAE
Malaysia are set to mount a determined rearguard action when they meet the UAE in Thursday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier in Abu Dhabi, a sneak preview of their formation suggests.
In a preview of the encounter, EspnFC.com suggested a a new three-man defence supported by wing-backs will be implemented by the visitors at the Mohammad Bin Zayed Stadium. This is as a result of Dollah Salleh’s men earning only one point from their opening two Group A qualifiers, the last of which was a 6-0 thrashing by Palestine.
The tactical analysis of Malaysia conducted by EspnFc.com makes a strong case for the defence to avoid a heavy beating at the hands of Mahdi Ali’s side, who lie 98 places above their opponents in the Fifa rankings at 70. Details
