FAM ready to help Timor-Leste

The Malaysia national squad will not travel to Dili to face Timor-Leste in the preliminary stages of the 2022 World Cup/Asian Cup qualifiers if their facilities are not up to par.

The first tie will take place on June 6 in Malaysia with the second tie set to be held in Timor-Leste on June 11.

But if their venue in Dili fails to reach the standards set by the Asian Football Confederation (AFC), Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) secretary-general Stuart Ramalingam said the association will look into the possibility of hosting both legs.

“I need to check [Timor-Leste FA’s readiness] first, but it’s ultimately down to them. If they can host the match in Timor-Leste, I don’t see why they would want to do it somewhere else.

“If their facilities are still not up to AFC standards, we’ll be glad to host both matches. They’ve played a lot of matches in Malaysia, the country is like their second home ground already,” he said.
