Youngest Malaysia U-15 squad member Akid wants to prove himself

Out of the 23 players selected by Malaysia U-15 head coach Maniam Pachaiappan for the coming 2020 AFC U-16 Championship qualification, one of them is only 14 years old; forward Akid Zamri.

Having edged the likes of Iran, North Korea, Australia and Thailand in two tournaments this year, their true test will start next week in Vientiane, Laos, when they take part in Group J of the qualifiers, against Cambodia, hosts Laos, and group favourites Japan.

They will first take on Cambodia on September 18, before facing Laos two days later, and will finally go up against Japan on 22 September.
