Malaysia call up six uncapped players for Airmarine Cup
National head coach Tan Cheng Hoe has named six uncapped players among his 25-man squad for Malaysia's upcoming international action.

The six players are Selangor duo Abdul Halim Saari and Faiz Nasir, English-Malaysian defender Nicholas Swirad, Kedah goalkeeper Ifwat Akmal Chek Kassim, PKNP midfielder Hafiz Ramdan and Perak youngster Firdaus Saiyadi.

The newcomers are among the 12 players who weren't involved in the Harimau Malaya's run to the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup final — the other six are Abdul Latiff Suhaimi (Selangor), Hadin Azman (Felda United), Matthew Davies (Pahang), Nor Azam Abdul Azih (Pahang), Rizal Ghazali (Kedah), and S. Kumaahran (Johor Darul Ta'zim II).

Malaysia will also be playing an international friendly against Nepal on March 26.
