Sri Lanka’s poor run continues


Malaysia got their qualifying campaign back on track, scoring a convincing 3-0 win over Sri Lanka with Aliff Yuslan netting a double in another Group E fixture of the AFC U-20 Asian Cup Uzbekistan 2023 Qualifiers at the MFF Stadium on Friday.

Malaysia, who came into the tie following a 1-1 draw against Mongolia, broke the deadlock at the half-hour mark through Aliff.

Adam Faizal doubled Malaysia’s advantage in the 70th minute before Aliff scored his second of the evening in added time to seal the win.

Once again it was a one sided affair with another poor performance by the Lankan lads, where they failed to keep the possession of the ball.
