He said: “Every match we play now will be crucial in our preparations for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, and this tournament will aid me in evaluating the players’ individual performances. The squad I called up to face the Indonesia Under-23 National Team comprised 15 players who can play in this U21 tournament, and I will be keeping a lookout for more promising youth players as the Singapore Premier League season kicks off.
