The tournament, set to take place on March 20-23, is being organised by the Malaysian FA to try to bolster their FIFA rankings ahead of the next World Cup qualifiers.
President of the Solomon Islands Football Federation, William Lai, tells Football in Oceania:
“It will be a first ever kind of trip. We aspire to qualify for the 2026 World Cup, or, if there will be 48 teams, in 2022. It is an opportunity we cannot refuse as we attempt to slowly break into world football.”
