Though some suggest US-based Wan Kuzain Wan Kamal as a potential Mokhtar Dahari in the making, one glance would tell you he's very much similar, in terms of size and technical skills, to Wong Choon Wah, the nation's foremost left-footed playmaker who saw action in the Munich Olympics in 1972.
Barely 11, Wan Kuzain has been labelled as the star from MidWest. Born and bred in Illinois, he currently plays as a striker and attacking midfielder for SISC/Force soccer club, where he is the club's all time leading goal scorer. Kuzain is considered one of the most skillful, creative and dynamic attacking players in his club.
While it's still premature to label him as the answer to our woes, FA of Malaysia and the other relevant stakeholders must keep tabs on him. I think we have to work out a mechanism which will allow Wan Kuzain to pursue his career overseas and recalled for national duty as and when required.
Also our authorities must speak to parents of Yokohama FC's Tam Sheang Tsung to find out whether or not he intends to come back and wear the yellow jersey one day. Read here. It's obvious if he does make the grade as a pro, Sheang Tsung may have the option of playing for his adopted country.
