While the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) is struggling to "do and say" the right things, a handful of Asian countries are expected to begin preparations for the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaigns.
The 2014 FIFA World Cup Asian qualifiers start on October 8, 2010 with Match Day 1 of the first round. MD2 is on October 12, 2010.
The AFC Competitions Department has yet to announce the qualification format for the 2014 finals, to be held in Brazil.
FAM at its council meeting decided to keep Pahang in the top flight while the new look Harimau B would play in the premier league. Only recently, the Competitions Committee announced that Harimau Muda would play in the Super League while Pahang would be relegated.
But, the council, at its meeting Monday, changed that. Well, to tell you the truth, I expected that decision and I believe many others also has the same feeling as me.
I wonder if they discussed about the 2014 qualifying tournament and the national team's preparation.
