What is Malaysia's goal in AFF Cup?

What is Malaysia's goal in AFF Cup? [Newspaper] (2021)


THE AFF Cup could not have come at the worst possible time for national coach Tan Cheng Hoe, at the end of a hectic domestic season amid a pandemic. The oft-postponed AFF Cup, to be held in Singapore as a carnival tournament just as the first edition in the city-state was in 1996, is struggling to remain relevant in an international calendar where other commitments take importance. Vietnam are competing against Asia's best in the final group stage of World Cup qualifying while the other major Southeast Asian nations will be playing in the Asian Cup qualifiers for the 2023 edition in China. Where does this leave the AFF Cup, which the Asean Football Federation were fortunate to squeeze into the calendar this December only because the Vietnam Sea Games were postponed to May next year?
