I have included on my site all the match details for Sweden. I'm missing two opponent lineups though for the matches vs Thailand 1962 and Malaysia 1979. I had no luck with reviewing Straits Times. Anyone have any more info?

However, for the Thailand match, I don't think so. The Bangkok Post (English language) did not give full lineups except very rarely.

Incidentally, you can see the Bangkok Post archives online
This is meant to be a money-making site selling copies of front pages, but actually it is possible to "hack" it easily to see any page you want, but not at high resolution, so you can only read headlines.

(1) Visit
(2) Choose a date, then click "Search".
(3) Click "Large View"
(4) Edit the URL : delete all characters to the right of the ampersand. Example:
(5) Edit the URL again : Change the page number (final two characters) - experiment until you find sports pages. Example:
(6) Right-click on the image and select "Copy image location". Paste into your address bar. Example:
(7) Edit the URL : (delete "Low"). Example:

This gives you something where you can at least read the headlines.

In fact, you can simply edit the last URL in step (7) to choose any date and page number you want.

Unfortunately I couldn't find any way to produce a higher res image, to zoom in to the articles. If anyone else succeeds in this, let me know, you can have a special "PRO HACKER" badge ;-)

With regard to this match vs Sweden, I found an article the previous day which could potentially give the expected lineup, but I doubt it:

The Malaysian team was without their star striker Mokhtar Dahari (injured) and a few other top players like Wong Choon Wah and goalkeeper "Spiderman" Arumugam. This was a semi-experimental Malaysia lineup, apart from the regular centre-backs Soh and Santokh, midfield dynamo Shukor, and striker Isa Bakar.
