TCH calls up Afiq Fazail in 26-man squad for Tajikistan, Thailand and Indonesia

Afiq Fazail has been a real consistent performer for Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) in this season's M-League where the young midfielder has formed a solid partnership in midfielder alongside Hariss Harun and that has finally seen him getting a recall back to the senior national team under Tan Cheng Hoe.

The 25-year-old was last in the squad last year for the international friendly against Mongolia in March where the result was a 2-2 draw but was not involved in subsequent squads. The absence of Nor Azam Azih during the match against Vietnam in the World Cup qualifier in Hanoi was keenly felt with Halim Saari not quite up to mark, perhaps being the nominal reason why Afiq is selected this time around.
