Malaysia drop Manchester United
Under pressure from the AFC and FIFA Malaysia have cancelled their friendly against Manchester United in July. Despite having signed an agreement pledging not to schedule other games during the Asian Cup the Malaysian government went and organisied the United game as a highlight of Visit Malaysia Year and the 50th anniversary of independance. Of course for United their aim was not to help commerate these events. They had their eye on some beaches and selling more shirts; adding Malaysia to Japan, Korea and China was a no brainer.
