Malaysia names its 30-player Asian Cup squad

Malaysia has named its 30-man preliminary squad for the 2007 Asian Cup. Coach Norizan Bakar has recalled striker Indraputra Mahayuddin after the 26 year-old recovered from an ankle injury. “It is players of such calibre that I am very interested in and Indra certainly fits the bill,” Bakar said. “Although Indra did not see much action in the Super League this season following surgery on his ankles, his return to active duty with Pahang in their last two league outings, indicates he has fully recovered.”

Malaysia’s build-up includes games against Saudi Arabia on 15 June and UAE six days later. The team has been drawn in Group C along with Iran, China and Uzbekistan.

The squad is Muhammad Shukor Adan, Mohd Fadzli Saari, Akmal Rizal Ahmad Rakhli, Mohd Safee Mohd Sali, Syed Adney Syed Hussain, Amirulhadi Zainal, Mohd Nor Farhan Muhammad, K. Nanthakumar, Shahrulnizam Mustapa, S. Subramaniam, Norhafiz Zamani Misbah, Rosdi Talib, Hairuddin Omar, Indra Putra Mahayuddin, Mohd Fauzi Nan, Azi Shahril Azmi, Muhamad Kaironnisam Sahabuddin, Azizon Kadir, Rezal Zambery Yahya, Muhamad Aidil Zafuan, V. Thirumurugan, Mohd Fauzi Shaari, Muhammad Khyril Muhymeen, Mohd Suffian Abdul Rahman, Muhammad Hardi Jaafar, Mohd Ivan Yusof , Nazrulerwan Makmor, Eddy Helmi Abdul Manan, Mohd Hamzani Omar, Ronny Harun.
