defender has not ruled out the option of perhaps playing for national team one day, if the opportunity arises.

The 23-year-old has not been capped by and could switch his nationality to Malaysian citizenship if he has lived continuously in the country for at least five years according to the FIFA’s law.

Bikana joined The Turtles in 2013 and currently is in his third year living in Malaysia and would have to wait until 2017 before his naturalisation could be processed.

“I am very interested to gain Malaysian citizenship because I have been playing football here since 2013 and I have enjoyed every minute of it,” he said was quoted by FourFourTwo.

“If I am able to get Malaysian citizenship, I want to play for Malaysia and help the national team as much as I can.

Previously, Harimau Malaya coach Dollah Salleh has supported the idea of using naturalised players in the national squad and the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) is also ready to discuss the issue.
