Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) president Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim called for the game to be moved to a neutral venue, saying he was concerned over player safety. . . .
"Truthfully, I would like the match to be played at a neutral venue for the sake of the players' safety," Tunku Ismail posted on the FAM's Facebook page. . . .
Despite the tensions, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) announced this week that the game would go ahead on June 8 after Malaysia confirmed it had eased travel restrictions.
