Malaysia Prioritise Kids Against Chelsea

It's usually the other way round. Usually the big teams insult the weak teams by not playing their strongest XI.

But now Malaysia, brimming with confidence after recent successes in SEA Games (2009), AFF Cup (2010), and making progress in the Olympic and the World Cup Qualifiers have warned Chelsea they may only field their Under 23 team against the London team who many would argue aren't that big anyway.

Malaysia also host Arsenal and Liverpool, who are big teams, either side of the Chelsea game and at the end of the month face bitter rivals Singapore in a World Cup home and away qualifier.

After meetings between the game organisers and the Malaysian FA they have decided to field the Under 23s against The Blues.

Wonder if Chelsea will now spit the dummy knowing their holidaymakers will line up against a bunch of kids?

This 'Harimau Malaya' (Malaysia Tigers) team, I smell similarities in Singapore national team competing in MLeague and Malaysia Cup circa early 90s, rather than priority on domestic league...
the malaysians have been working hard to improve their national team and this is one example
many of them have spent time in slovakia playing in very different environments from what they're used to
