Liverpool on Friday latest in list of visiting English sides to Malaysia

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and Steve McMahon react to Brendan Rodgers' press conference and the great support that Liverpool has received while on tour.

Plenty of English teams have been to Malaysia over the years, and Liverpool's match against Malaysia XI at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium on Friday night is the latest in the list.

Below are the 10 most memorable clashes -- in descending order -- involving visiting English club and national sides in Malaysia:

10. Selangor Selection 0-2 Manchester United 1995

Not the best result for this version of the Red Giants but notable for the appearance of a very young David Beckham as substitute for Brain...

Comforting tearful Gazza at Italia '90 and what I was really thinking

Substitute Steve McMahon comforts Paul Gascoigne as he walks off the pitch after extra time of England's 1990 World Cup semifinal against West Germany.

It is hard to believe 25 years have passed since Paul "Gazza" Gascogine shed tears in England's World Cup semifinal against West Germany at the 1990 World Cup. My memories remain so vivid.

Even though England ended up losing the semifinal on penalties, that game -- and the tournament -- is rightfully credited with helping Britain fall in love with football again and create the momentum for the start of the Premier League era.

People have asked me what soothing words I said to Gazza as he walked...

England simply weren't good enough to avoid Euro U21 elimination vs Italy

Harry Kane & Co. simply couldn't handle the experience of Italy's U21 team and it showed in a 3-1 defeat.

Linear and lacking in ideas, organisation that collapsed as soon as serious pressure was placed upon its structure, concentration lapses, snatched finishes and hard-luck stories: England's exit from the European Under-21 Championships was a classic in a footballing nation's genre of delivering failure at international tournaments.

The boys of 1984 (the year England last won this competition) are now in their 50s and as much of Gareth Southgate's team passes the age of eligibility for the U21...

UEFA rules force England U-21s to make 130m bus trip

For whatever reason, UEFA gameday protocol states -- nay, demands -- that squads travel to any and all of their sanctioned matches aboard an official team bus.

As such, with a European U-21 Championship tie vs. Sweden in the offing on Sunday, England's youngsters loaded up their coach, clambered aboard and hit the road bound for the Androv Stadium in Olomouc, Czech Republic.

The stadium, it should be noted, is situated a mammoth 127 metres from the front doors of their team hotel.

Thankfully for...

England get lucky with U21 win over Sweden and must learn from mistakes

An impressive late volley from Jessie Lingard propels England to their first win of the U21 European Championship in this Group B clash.

England's U21s looked doomed. After 84 minutes of repeatedly bashing their heads off Sweden's two disciplined banks of four, Man United's Jesse Lingard lashed home an unlikely winner and saved Gareth Southgate's side from what seemed like another humiliatingly early exit.

It would be stretching the truth to say that England deserved three points for the nature of their play. But perhaps they deserved a second chance for the nature of their intentions. This is an England side trying to do the...

Gulf in class leaves England adrift of Portugal in Under-21 opener

Joao Mario managed to score the only goal of the match, as Portugal defeated England 1-0 in the UEFA Under 21 European Championship.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley does not take anything away from Jack Wilshere's two goal performance against Slovenia, but picks at Adam Lallana's dive where it appears not many are talking about.

If this was the England of the future, then it looked disturbingly like those of the past. Already, the under-21 team's chances of progressing beyond the group stages of the European Championship lie in serious doubt.

As at the senior level, a distinct gap in technique between England and their Portuguese opponents proved the difference. The young Englishmen were driven to the type of distraction that befell their older brothers during major tournament exits in 2000, 2004 and 2006. Once Portugal...
