Malaysia drawn in same group as Asian Games winners South Korea

It's deja vu for the Malaysia U-23 men's football team as they will face South Korea in the group stage again at the 2018 Asian Games.

Drawn together in Group E, the young Tigers previously lost 3-0 to the South Koreans as they crashed out in the group stage four years ago in Incheon, while their opponents went on to win the tournament for a record fourth time.

The other group opponents of Ong Kim Swee's boys, whose best Asian Games performance was winning bronze in 1962 and 1974, are Kyrgyzstan and Bahrain.

Host nation Indonesia are in Group A alongside Hong Kong, Laos and Chinese Taipei, while DPR Korea, who lost in the 2014 final, are pitted in Group F with Saudi Arabia, Iran and Myanmar.

The football tournament of the upcoming Asian Games is scheduled to take place from August 14 to September 1.
