The Malaysian national team is set to hone its skills at Cardiff City ahead of the Asian Games in Guangzhou in November 2010.

Cardiff extended an invitation to host a training camp for K. Rajagobal and his team to help them prepare for the Asiad to be held on November 12-27.

The invite was extended to the FAM Secretariat recently.

FAM General Secretary Datuk Azzuddin Ahmad said the Secretariat was working on a suitable date to send the national team to Wales.

Cardiff City however regretfully informed FAM that the plan to have a training camp which includes a friendly against a club team on 14 July and the Malaysian National Team on 17 July had to be called off due to logistical reasons.

The Club however has committed to come for a pre-season tour in Malaysia next year.

However, Rajagobal and his Under-23 meanwhile will look forward to a prestigious friendly on Sunday 25 July 2010.

The South Korean FA has confirmed it is sending its Olympic squad, which might include a few members of the senior squad that advanced to the second round of the FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa, for the friendly match to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Malaysia & South Korea diplomatic relations.

The game is scheduled on 25th July 2010 at Bukit Jalil Stadium. Kick-off time 5.00pm.

Meanwhile the prestigious friendly tie between Malaysia and the Spanish giants Real Madrid will not materialise due to technical reasons.

Contrary to recent media reports that the match against the nine-time European champions would be held on August 21, the friendly had never been confirmed.

It was not FAM’s wish to mislead the media or disappoint the legions of fans of the Spanish giants in Malaysia but having taken into account all matters relating to the organisation of a match of this magnitude, it was decided that the match be called off.
