KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — A World Cup qualifying match between Malaysia and Saudi Arabia was suspended in the 88th minute Tuesday after fans threw flares and fireworks onto the field.

With the visiting team leading 2-1 when the trouble began at the Shah Alam Stadium, Saudi Arabia coach Bert van Marwijk led his players off the field.

The Group A match was officially suspended a short time later.
