Lions squad for Mongolia and Cambodia friendlies announced
SINGAPORE, 3 OCTOBER 2018: Singapore National Team Head Coach Fandi Ahmad has called up a 29-man squad for Singapore’s friendlies against Mongolia and Cambodia this month.
Balestier Khalsa FC midfielder Huzaifah Aziz joins the Lions for the first time, while his teammate Fadli Kamis has earned a recall to the team, having last turned out for the Lions in September 2014.
The Lions will come together on 8 October for centralised training at Geylang Training Centre. They take on Mongolia at Bishan Stadium on 12 October and will travel to Phnom Penh two days later to face Cambodia on 16 October. Their flight departs from Changi Airport Terminal 2 at 12.10pm on 14 October.
Last month, Coach Fandi led the Lions to a 1-1 draw against Mauritius on 7 September before picking up a 2-0 win against Fiji on 11 September.
He said: “Last month’s games were important in allowing me to gauge the potential of our players and to see how well they gel together. For this FIFA window, I’ve called up Huzaifah and Fadli, both of whom have performed consistently well for Balestier Khalsa this season. Hopefully, we will be able to give them a chance to show what they can do at the international level.
“As the AFF Suzuki Cup draws closer, these upcoming friendlies as well as our training camp in late October are important as we try to put together the best possible squad for the tournament. The support from the fans is vital, which was something we have experienced in the last two games we played at home. I hope Singaporeans will come together and cheer the team on for the friendlies and more crucially when we kick off the AFF Suzuki Cup at the National Stadium against Indonesia on 9 November.”
Upon their return from Cambodia on 17 October, the National Team will leave for Japan for a training camp, as part of their final preparations for the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup where they take on Indonesia in the first group stage game on 9 November at the National Stadium. Tickets for Singapore’s AFF Suzuki Cup matches against Indonesia (9 November) and Timor-Leste (21 November) are available on the Sports Hub website, with early bird ticket sales closing on 21 October.
