Singapore U23 National Team to face Myanmar


Hami Syahin and Zulqarnaen Suzliman in action against Indonesia U23 in March 2018


SINGAPORE, 13 JUNE 2018: Singapore Under-23 National Team Head Coach Fandi Ahmad has called up a squad of 23 players to face the Myanmar Under-23 National Team on Wednesday, 20 June 2018 at Bishan Stadium. Ticket sales for the match will begin at 10am tomorrow on 14 June 2018.


Under-23 National Team Head Coach Fandi Ahmad said: “This match against Myanmar provides a good opportunity for the U23 players who have been performing for their clubs in the Singapore Premier League (SPL) to gain invaluable international football experience. We have called up 13 players from the SPL clubs to complement our Young Lions players to play against a very good Myanmar team who are preparing for the Asian Games. It will be a good test for us but with the support of our home fans, we are confident of a good showing against one of the best Asian youth teams in recent years.”


Of the 23-man squad, 10 are new faces who were not called up for the friendly against Indonesia U23s in March, including seven from the various SPL clubs.


Head of National Teams Management Eric Ong said: “It has been a challenge arranging international games outside of FIFA International Windows and we would like to express our appreciation to the Myanmar Football Federation for accepting our invitation to play this friendly next week. We would also like to thank our SPL clubs for their support in releasing players for our National Team.”


Myanmar qualified for the 2015 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in New Zealand after reaching the semi-finals of the 2014 Asian Football Confederation Under-19 Championship, along with North Korea, Qatar and Uzbekistan. Their senior team is ranked 138th in the latest FIFA World Ranking, with a number of players also playing in the Under-23 National Team.


Tickets will be available at and on-site on match day.
