Share

SINGAPORE, 27 JUNE 2018: The Singapore Women’s National Team head coach K. Balagumaran has called up a squad of 23 players for the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Women’s Championship. Held in Palembang, Indonesia this year, the Championship will be played from 30 June to 13 July 2018.

The squad features three players from the Under-19 Women’s National Team – Afiqah Omar, Syazwani Ruzi, Umairah Hamdan – and 24-year-old Priscilla Tan who is playing in Australia’s National Premier League Women’s side Eastern Suburbs FC.

Singapore has been drawn in Group B for the tournament, alongside 2016 runners-up Vietnam, Myanmar, Philippines and Indonesia, and will kick-start their campaign on 1 July against hosts Indonesia.

Coach K. Balagumaran said: “As compared to last year, we have seen vast improvements in the team. The squad also recorded some credible results during our training camp in Vietnam and a 2-0 win over Maldives in March this year. We are in a tough group; it will not be easy facing Vietnam who were the runners-up in the last edition of the competition, and Myanmar who placed third. But we will be looking to give the teams a good fight and to close the gap between us and our neighbouring countries.”
