World Cup qualifier in Malaysia abandoned due to crowd trouble

A world cup qualifier between Malaysia and Saudi Arabia was abandoned on Tuesday night following crowd trouble in Selangor.

Three minutes before full time the match was called off after local fans launched flares and fireworks from the stands filling the ground full of smoke.

11 fans were reportedly arrested.

Visiting Saudi Arabia were leading 2-1 when play was stopped and could now be awarded a 3-0 victory as a result of possible FIFA sanctions against Malaysia.
