Singapore U23, announced provisional squad of 27 players for the upcoming Men’s Football event in SEA Games 2021 at Hanoi, Vietnam.
Most of the 27 players will undergo a local centralised training camp from 25 April 2022 in preparation for the tournament before a final squad of 20 players is named ahead of the team’s departure on 4 May 2022.
The sibling duo of Irfan and Ikhsan Fandi will not be joining the centralised training due to ongoing club commitments. Similarly, Hami Syahin, Nur Adam Abdullah and Saifullah Akbar are involved with their Lion City Sailor and BG Pathum United 2 club’s in AFC Champions League 2022 group stage in Thailand.
Having previously been a Under-22 tournament, men’s football at this year’s SEA Games will be a U23 to factor in the six-month postponement of the Games, with each team able to call up a maximum of three overaged players. Goalkeeper Zaiful Nizam, defender Irfan Fandi and midfielders Hami Syahin and Zulfahmi Arifin are in contention to fill the overaged player slots.
Meanwhile, striker Ilhan Fandi and midfielder Farhan Zulkifli have been ruled out of the tournament after sustaining injuries while representing their clubs in the AIA Singapore Premier League.
