Five players Tan Cheng Hoe must consider for Malaysia based on form

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

N. Thanabalan (Negeri Sembilan FA, striker)

Thanabalan may have only scored three times for struggling Negeri Sembilan this season, but there is a romance between him and the national team. After playing a starring role for the Malaysia Under-23 team at the Southeast Asian Games football tournament last year, Thanabalan replicated that heroic feat with a crucial equalizer against South Korea in this year’s AFC U23 Championship. His deadly headers are his biggest asset, and his anticipation in the penalty box has been proven time and again. Perhaps it is now time for the hardworking striker to get a chance and prove his worth in the senior team.
