Singapore Under-21 National Team squad to face Australia Under-19 confirmed


SINGAPORE, 5 OCTOBER 2018: The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) today announced the Under-21 National Team squad that will host the Australia Under-19 National Team on Monday 15 October 2018 at Bishan Stadium.


The 23-man squad includes 18 players who are aged 20 and younger, of which three – Akram Azman, Arshad Shamim and Saul Ellison Katz – are receiving their first call-ups to the Under-21 National Team. All the players are eligible for the 2020 Asian Football Confederation Under-23 Championship qualifiers in March 2019 and the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.


Coach Nazri Nasir, who is leading the team for the match, said: “This is a good opportunity for these players to play international opponents. Australia is a strong opponent with a good track record at not only the Asian level but also on the global stage. We have called up a number of players who have performed well in their respective competitions, but have had few opportunities to pit themselves against international opposition. This friendly will be a good experience for these players and we look forward to an exciting game against Australia.”
