Nazri names his finalized Singapore Under-22 squad for AFC U-23 Asian Cup Qatar 2024 Qualifiers


Team scheduled to face Group C rival Yemen, Guam, and Vietnam in Hanoi


SINGAPORE, 3 SEPTEMBER 2023 – Singapore Under-22 Men’s National Team Head Coach Nazri Nasir has announced a finalised squad of 23 players for the upcoming 2024 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-23 Asian Cup Qatar Qualifiers in Vietnam.


The final selection follows an intense period of centralised training in Thailand, where the team has been based the past 12 days in preparation for the upcoming tournament. From an initial provisional squad of 25 who began training on August 23, 2023, Coach Nazri has selected the 23 players that he hopes will do the nation proud in Hanoi, Vietnam. The players were assessed after a series of friendlies in Thailand, including an international friendly with the Thailand U-22 team.


One of the players to book a spot in the final squad is Muhammad Asis, who will be playing in his first major tournament with the Under-22 team. Asis, 19, who plays for the Lion City Sailors Under-21 squad, said, “Wearing the national jersey and standing as a representative of our nation is an honour. Each one of us understands this responsibility and recognizes the significance. The team firmly believes in our abilities to execute the coach’s strategies effectively and we are confident in giving a performance worthy of donning this jersey.”


Young Lions’ duo Umayr Sujuandy and Elijah Lim were not picked for the final squad while Tampines Rovers’ Ryaan Sanizal had to withdraw from the team due to an injury suffered before the squad started their centralised training.


Prior to departure from Bangkok to Hanoi, Coach Nazri shared his thoughts on the players chosen to represent Singapore at the AFC tournament, “The selection of the 23 players was a result of their unwavering display of dedication, determination and discipline throughout the centralised training phase. Equally crucial, their inclusion was guided by our strategic approach and game plan. The centralised training was critical, especially given the boys, including those from the other SPL clubs, gathered on August 21. This allowed me and my backroom staff to instill into the boys the way we want to approach the competition in Hanoi, as well as to ensure we have full focus in this final leg of the preparation. As we gear up for the upcoming matches against three formidable teams in Viet Tri City, our team is filled with palpable enthusiasm and a strong sense of focus and determination. I firmly believe they will pose a significant challenge to their opponents and will exert their utmost effort in these matches.”


The team has departed to Hanoi, Vietnam yesterday and will commence their first match on 6th September 2023 against Yemen at Viet Tri Stadium in Viet Tri City, Vietnam. They will then face off against Guam three days later before completing their group stage matches against host Vietnam on 12th September.
