The venue and kick-off time for the AFC Asian Cup 2011 Group C qualifier between Malaysia and Uzbekistan has been changed.

The match will take place on 18 November with a kick-off time of 1730 and a new venue, which is the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur.

The AFC Asian Cup 2011 finals will be held in Qatar.


Australia completed their successful Group H programme in the AFC U-16 Championship 2010 qualifiers with a 2-1 victory over Malaysia.

The Aussies finished top of the double round-robin group with 10 points from four matches, six ahead of second-placed Laos with Malaysia last on two points.

All the goals were scored in the first half. Australia were 2-0 up within 33 minutes with goals from Jesse Makarounas and Milos Degenek. Malaysia’s Akmal Bin Ishak pulled one back a minute before half-time.

Only one team from the group qualify for next year’s finals.
