Josue aiming to create more history with Kuala Lumpur City
Kuala Lumpur: Paulo Josue is looking to write a new chapter in Kuala Lumpur City FC’s history as the Brazilian gets set to lead the Malaysian side into the 2022 AFC Cup™ ASEAN Zonal Semi-finals against Vietnam’s Viettel FC on August 10.
After captaining the capital city side to their first Malaysia Cup since 1989 last year, the 33-year-old - who has been at the club since 2017 - was a standout performer as Kuala Lumpur made their AFC Cup debut in June and advanced to the knockout rounds as the best-placed runners-up.
Following a goalless draw against PSM Makassar in their opening Group H game, the midfielder netted two outstanding goals in the 2-1 win over Tampines Rovers that ensured Kuala Lumpur joined PSM, fellow Malaysian side Kedah Darul Aman and opponents Viettel in the ASEAN Zonal Semi-finals.
Team Base Camp line-up reflects uniquely compact nature of FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022
Doha: The 31 teams travelling to Qatar will have a Team Base Camp (TBC) to call home at the most compact FIFA World Cup since the inaugural instalment in 1930.
With no domestic flights required during the tournament, the same top-class facilities will be used throughout the competition. For this edition, therefore, official training sessions the day before matches will also be held at the respective training sites.
