SINGAPORE, 2018, MARCH 18: Singapore Under-23 National Team Head Coach Fandi Ahmad today confirmed the 26-man squad for the match against the Indonesia Under-23 National Team.

To be able to play our first match at the National Stadium means a lot to the team, especially for many of our young players. I hope that fans will come down to support our team.”
