Young Lionesses Head For AFC U16 Women’s Championship 2019 Qualifiers


SINGAPORE, 14 SEPTEMBER 2018: The Singapore Under-16 Women’s National Team head coach Yeong Sheau Shyan has called up a squad of 21 players for the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U16 Women’s Championship 2019 Qualifiers Round 1. The matches will be played in Dushanbe, Tajikistan from 15 to 23 September 2018.


Drawn into Group C for the first round of qualifiers, Singapore will face Thailand, Islamic Republic of Iran, Northern Mariana Islands and Tajikistan. The team returned from a training camp in Myanmar on 7 September 2018 where they played the Myanmar Under-16 side twice. They also participated in the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) U16 Girls’ Championship earlier this May, finishing fourth in their group.


Teams finishing top of their respective groups will progress to the second and final round of qualifiers, with the best two second-placed teams joining them.


Under-16 Women’s National Team Coach Yeong Sheau Shyan said: “We have assembled a young squad with an average age of 14.8 years to travel up to Tajikistan for the qualifiers. For many of them, it will be the first time travelling such a distance for a tournament.”


“Earlier this year, we achieved credible draws against Malaysia and Philippines in the AFF U16 Girls’ Championship and we just returned from a fruitful training camp in Myanmar. We will be facing a tough group for the qualifiers, with the likes of Iran and the AFF U16 Girls Champions Thailand in our group, but this will be a good experience for our young girls and they are ready to put up a good fight.”
