BURIRAM, Nov 14 (NNN-Bernama) -- Malaysia's campaign in the Asian Cup Qualifying ended in humiliating fashion when they suffered another 1-4 drubbing at the hands of a more technically coordinated North Korean side at the i-mobile Stadium here Monday.

The defeat was the second by North Korea in three days following Friday's 1-4 defeat at the same venue.

Under pressure Malaysian head coach Nelo Vingada made several changes in the starting line-up, leaving several familiar faces on the bench and opted for youth in his effort to avoid another defeat.

Among the most notable absentee for tonight's match was Fadhli Shas, who captained the national side last Friday and S. Kunanlan who is still nursing an injury. -- NNN-BERNAMA
