SINGAPORE, 2023, MARCH 20 – Irfan Fandi has withdrawn from the Singapore Men’s National Team, citing personal reasons with regards to club commitments. The defender’s withdrawal means he will not play any part in the team’s two friendly matches against Hong Kong on Thursday, 23 March, and Macau on Sunday, 26 March.
National Team Coach Takayuki Nishigaya said: “I have complete faith in the squad that I’ve selected, hence I will not be calling for any replacement. This is an opportunity for the other players to step up and stake their claim. Our full focus will be on the players that are with us as we look forward to the two matches this week.”
The Lions departed for Hong Kong earlier today.
