Young Tigers in slender loss to Japan

Malaysia under-23 ended their AFC under-23 Championship qualifiers campaign with an exemplary show of courage and hard work in the narrow 1-0 defeat to a strong Japanese side.

The Young Tigers, led by skipper Nazirul Naim in defence and a determined Farhan Abu Bakar in goal, thwarted the Samurai Blue’s continuous efforts in the first half up until the 42nd minute.
