So this should actually be a pretty good idea for a TV show. They’re going to run a nationwide talent search for hidden gems of football talent — folks who just never got a look from the so-called “football experts”! Politics! It’s all politics!
The kicker is that the final episode will be the team they assemble from the TV show in a live match against the actual Malaysian national team. I have to imagine people will watch that. And it’s going to happen May 28th, along the approach route for World Cup media buildup. Very clever.
