The FA of Malaysia (FAM) have frozen their women’s football team from taking part in further international competitions following the latest round of defeats sustained by the squad.
The ban also applies to the national women’s Futsal team.
The Malaysian national Under-16 squad were drummed out of the AFF Championship in Myanmar in October after conceding 33 goals and scoring just twice.
And at the SEA Games in Vientiane this week, the squad had already conceded a total of 22 goals after just two matches - a 14-0 drubbing at the hands of Thailand and then an 8-0 thrashing by Vietnam.
They still have two more matches to play for which is against hosts Laos on 11 December and then Myanmar two days later.
“Following the two losses (against Thailand and Vietnam) which were embarrassing, the FAM have decided not to allow the women’s team in taking part in any international competitions,“ said FAM deputy president Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar.
“The priority now is for development where we will need to strengthen the squad including the Futsal team. However, they can still play friendlies.”
