Participants were tested for their skills during the programme.
MDF Head Coach who was a former England player and also a Liverpool legend, Steve McMahon said the programme is the best opportunity for youngsters with enthusiasm in football to expose their talents into the international football arena.
“I believe we will have at least two or three excellent players from this state to be chosen by the end of this programme.
We will bring them to the grand finals in Kuala Lumpur,” said McMahon during the programme at the field of Dataran Bandaraya Johor Bahru. Also present was the MDF Football Director, Peter de Kretser.
More than 500 local participants aged from 11 to 14 years old had turned up in the programme to show their skills and prove that they are worthy to be the selected.
The MDF final selection was held on 23rd October 2016 at Dataran Merdeka, Kuala Lumpur. Two outstanding players from the shortlisted list will be sent to the United Kingdom for 10 days, all expenses paid.
“They will undergo trainings in the United Kingdom before taking part in a trial match in front of selected scouts from top European football clubs,” added McMahon.
