THE cream of the crop have been selected for the National Finals of the the Allianz Junior Football Camp (AJFC) Malaysia League.
The AJFC Malaysia League offers aspiring footballers aged between 14 and 16 the opportunity to train with Bundesliga Champions Bayern Munich in Germany.
So far, the trials were conducted in three regions – central, south and east coast – while the search for talents from the north zone will be held in Penang on May 28.
Harimau Mega came tops in the southern region after they edged KB Cheng-Stham 3-2 in the final at the Hang Jebat Sports Complex in Malacca on May 7.

A total of 72 players (18 each region) will be out to impress the selectors when the national finals kicks off at the Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) Stadium in Bangi on June 3 and 4.
The selectors will shortlist 13 players from the National Finals to attend the AJFC in Bali, Indonesia from July 19-21.
