Zulfahmi Arifin replaces Shakir Hamzah in Lions squad
SINGAPORE, 2 OCTOBER 2019 – Singapore National Team Coach Tatsuma Yoshida today called up Zulfahmi Arifin to replace Shakir Hamzah in the 23-strong squad to face Saudi Arabia and Uzbekistan in their third and fourth Group D matches of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ and Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup 2023 Preliminary Joint Qualification Round 2 campaign this month.
Kedah FA defender Shakir, 27, has withdrawn from the squad due to injury. Hougang United captain Zulfahmi Arifin, 27, last turned out for the Lions in June this year in a friendly against Myanmar; he has amassed 42 caps and scored one goal for Singapore.
The Lions will play Jordan in an international ‘A’ friendly in Amman on 5 October as preparation for the match against Saudi Arabia on 10 October in Buraidah, before returning home to face Uzbekistan at the National Stadium on 15 October.
The match against Saudi Arabia will be broadcast LIVE online on Mediacorp’s Toggle platform at toggle.sg.
The Lions depart Singapore in the morning on 3 October and arrive back on the morning of 12 October.
