Luciano Figueroa plans playing comeback for JDT in 2018 season

Jason Dasey and Stanley Bernard break down JDT's AFC Cup second leg against Ceres that saw them ousted by a controversial penalty.

In a move sure to stun Malaysian football, former Argentina international Luciano Figueroa will come out of retirement next season as Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) try to qualify for the AFC Champions League (ACL) for the first time.

Figueroa, who retired at the end of 2015 after JDT won the AFC Cup, had returned to the club in a sporting director role in September.

He was a talisman for JDT in the 2014 and 2015 seasons as they clinched the Malaysia Super League (MSL).

Jose Mourinho couldn't prevent Malaysia Asian Cup defeats - Satia

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and Dez Corkhill discuss Kelantan's great escape from relegation and prospects for the 2018 season.
Malaysia midfielder Brendan Gan opens up about his recovery from knee injury, free agency and his ambition for a comeback.

Former Malaysia head coach B. Satianathan has called on fans to get behind Nelo Vingada by insisting that not even Jose Mourinho could have led the Harimau Malaya to victories over North Korea and Lebanon.

Vingada has come in for a lot of criticism since back-to-back 4-1 defeats to the North Koreans saw them crash out of contention for a place at the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. The qualifying campaign has seen the Malaysians take just one point from five games in a group that also features Lebanon and Hong...

Philippines draw with Nepal, blow chance to make Asian Cup

Coach Thomas Dooley will now have to wait until March to see if Philippines can qualify.

Philippines blew a great chance to seal their place at the 2019 AFC Asian Cup as they laboured to a 0-0 draw in Nepal.

The Azkals will now have to avoid defeat at home to Tajikistan in next March's final Group F fixture after Tajikistan and Yemen also played out a goalless draw. Thomas Dooley's side remain two points clear at the top of the group and favourites to progress to their first-ever Asian Cup finals.

Winless Malaysia boss Nelo Vingada wants to stay on for AFF Suzuki Cup

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and Dez Corkhill discuss Kelantan's great escape from relegation and prospects for the 2018 season.

Malaysia head coach Nelo Vingada has vowed to fight on despite his side's demoralising exit from the 2019 AFC Asian Cup qualification campaign, with back-to-back 4-1 defeats to North Korea in neutral Thailand.

The embattled Portuguese boss has failed to win any of his seven games in charge since joining in May, overseeing six defeats and a lucky 1-1 draw at home when Hong Kong missed a late penalty. This leaves the Harimau Malaya bottom of Group B on one point and out of contention for a place at...

Malaysia are officially out of contention for a place at the 2019 AFC Asian Cup after North Korean striker Kim Yu-song's first half hat trick helped his side to another 4-1 win over Nelo Vingada's side in Group B.

The Koreans had beaten the same opponents by the same scoreline four days earlier, and Pak Kwang-ryong added a fourth for North Korea before Safawi Rasid grabbed a late consolation.

Head coach Vingada stunned the Malaysian fans by making eight changes from the lineup that started in Friday's...
