Share

SINGAPORE, 30 SEPTEMBER 2016: The Football Association of Singapore is pleased to announce that a 25-strong squad ‚Äì with an average age of 26.8 ‚Äì has been called up for the National Team‚Äôs two upcoming friendly matches against Malaysia and Hong Kong, on 7 October and 11 October 2016 respectively.

“I have chosen a squad with a good mix of youth and experience. We have seasoned professionals like Daniel Bennett and Mustafic Fahrudin, who can guide the young players like Iqbal Hussain, M. Anumanthan and Irfan Fandi,” said coach V. Sundram Moorthy.

‚ÄúI‚Äôm very excited to have been called up to the National ‚ÄòA‚Äô Team. I had played for the various age-group National Youth Teams over the past few years and it is always with pride and passion whenever I wear the National jersey. Having progressed through the youth development system, I am thankful to my coaches ‚Äì both past and present ‚Äì for their guidance and advice. I will continue to work hard and will strive to do my best if I‚Äôm selected for the upcoming matches. I hope fans will turn up in red and cheer us on at the National Stadium next Friday,‚Äù said Irfan Fandi.

Coach Sundram added: “Another player I am looking forward to seeing up close is Shawal Anuar. I have repeatedly said that the door to the National Team is always open as long as you play well for your club; Shawal has been doing well in the S.League, so this call-up is a reward for his good performances.”

An excited Shawal said: “Being a part of Coach Sundram’s squad for these two matches gives me a golden opportunity for me to prove myself. I will continue to work hard to show Coach what I can do, and what I can bring to the team. I can’t wait to train, and hopefully play, with players like Shahril Ishak and Khairul Amri.”

The squad will begin centralised training tomorrow ahead of next Friday‚Äôs Causeway Challenge, before departing for Hong Kong on 8 October. Tickets for the Causeway Challenge are available from www.sportshubtix.com.
