Stevenage youngster called up by Malaysia

PETALING JAYA: England-based youngster Haziq Zikri Elias is set to join the Harimau Muda (national Under-19) squad for two major international assignments this year.

The 18-year-old Haziq, who plays for Stevenage Borough FC in the Conference National League in Hertfordshire, will attend trials here tomorrow.

Harimau Muda coach Ong Kim Swee said that Haziq was no stranger to him.

“He was with me in the Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) Under-16 team, who won the Youth Cup in 2007,” he said yesterday.

“Since he left for England, we have kept tabs on his progress. He now plays in the first 11 with the Stevenage Under-19 elite team.”

Kim Swee said that he hoped Haziq would fit into their plans for the Asean Football Federation (AFF) Under-19 championship in August and also for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Under-19 qualifying rounds in November.

He added that besides Haziq, they would also put four other newcomers on trials.

They are D. Saarvindran (BJSS), Wan Zack Haikal Wan Nor from (Felda United), Mohd Fakhurazi Musa (T-Team) and Mohd Khairul Izzuwan Rosli (Kelantan).
