While it's hard to envisage any of the Selangor players taking part in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, some of the present batch of Qatar Under-19 outfit may have a role...They were in Shah Alam for two weeks recently for a training camp. Originally they wanted to set up camp in Cairo but due to the political turmoil, they shifted the base to Shah Alam. Perhaps it is worth marketing Kuala Lumpur as a training ground for teams from the Middle East.
Qatar Under-19 Dutch coach, Tini Ruys, does not want to foretell the future..."but they are 17 and 18 today...11 years from today, they might be the seniors guiding the team."
When asked the origin of the players, Ruys says: "Although they came from families of various descent, they were born in Doha."
