PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Under-23 football team are off to a winning start after beating Laos 1-0 in their opening match of the AFC Under-23 Asian Cup qualifiers on Monday (Oct 25).

The team known as Harimau Muda had the lion's share of possession but could not create many chances and better movement due to the artificial pitch at the MFF Stadium in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.

However, their patience paid off when right back Quentin Cheng unleashed a crisp cross from the right and striker Not Azfar Zikri took advantage by tapping the ball past Laos’ goalkeeper Solasak Thilavong in the 68th minute.

In the other game, Thailand were held by home side Mongolia 1-1.
