New Straits Times - - Sport -

AMER­I­CAN-BORN Wan Kuzain Wan Ka­mal is un­likely to rep­re­sent Malaysia in the Kuala Lumpur Sea Games in Au­gust.

The FA of Malaysia (FAM) have no plans to en­tice Wan Kuzain, who made his pro­fes­sional de­but with United Soccer League’s (USL) club Swope Park Rangers this sea­son, as the midfielder is eye­ing on play­ing in Ma­jor Soccer League (MSL) or Europe one day.

“Ev­ery­one knows about Wan Kuzain. How­ever, no­body here has sug­gested that we bring him to Malaysia to play in the Sea Games,” said na­tional Un­der-22 man­ager Datuk Yu­soff Ma­hadi yes­ter­day.

Coach Ong Kim Swee has se­lected 26 play­ers for a play­ing tour of China next month. The trainees will re­port to­mor­row at Wisma FAM in Ke­lana Jaya and will leave for China on June 8.

The team will play China’s Un­der-22 team on June 10 in Xiang­tan, fol­lowed by the re­serve teams of Guangzhou R&F (June 13) and Guangzhou Ever­grande (June 15), both in Guangzhou.

They will likely take on Me­laka in a friendly on June 22 be­fore break­ing camp on the fol­low­ing day.

It will be Kim Swee’s fourth Sea Games
