SINGAPORE, 13 APRIL 2023 – Singapore Women’s National Team Head Coach Karim Bencherifa today named a provisional squad of 27 players for the Lionesses’ upcoming Southeast Asian (SEA) Games Group B campaign in Cambodia.


Overseas-based players Putri Syaliza (Oakland University), Danelle Tan (London Bees) and Nicole Lim (University of Edinburgh) have been added to the squad, along with 10 Lionesses – Erlinawaty Jaffar, Haziqah Haszman, Afiqah Omar, Rochelle Chan, Sitianiwati Rosielin, Clara Lau, Farah Nurzahirah, Lila Tan, Raudhah Kamis and Alyssa Yazrin – who could be making their first SEA Games appearance this year.


As part of their SEA Games preparations, the Lionesses will embark on a three-day overseas training camp in Kuala Lumpur, starting on 14 April 2022. Back home, the team has also been undergoing training sessions six days a week, coupled with friendly matches against local clubs.


Coach Karim said: “We came up with a three-week intensive preparation plan that includes a mix of their standard training sessions and friendly matches once we returned from the Olympic qualifiers in Thailand. I believe with a rigorous training schedule coupled with increased match exposure, we can develop all aspects of the players’ game – from physical strength to tactical and technical capabilities – as well as getting them accustomed to differing styles, intensities, and speeds of play in preparation for their Group B matches against Thailand, Cambodia and Laos.”


A final squad of 20 players will be named ahead of the team’s departure on Sunday, 30 April 2023. Forward Danelle Tan will link up with the rest of the team directly in Cambodia after completing her school commitments.


This will be the Lionesses’ second run at the SEA Games, having first made their first appearance last year in Vietnam, after 19 years.
