LionsXII - Singapore Back In Malaysian Football

Daft name for a football team? I dunno, when we get to this part of the world, where we have MBA speak fill the pages of newspapers and the words of TV hosts all the time, you would think people would understand the meaning and importance of branding.

LionsXII? For a football team? Sounds as daft as TTM, PEA, SAFC, MyTeam, or Sime Darby.

Anyway that is how Singapore have chosen to name their team that will compete in Malaysia next year. Name aside, it is a good, positive move for Singapore football though personally I would have preferred to have seen Young Lions play north of the Causeway.

Squad taken from Today Online.


Izwan Mahbud, Hyrulnizam Juma'at, Al-Faiz Ishak


Safuwan Baharudin, Juma'at Jantan, Shaiful Esah, Irwan Shah, Sevki Sha'ban, Shakir Hamzah, Shahir Hamzah, Madhu Mohana


Shahril Ishak (capt), Hariss Harun (vice-capt), Safirul Sulaiman, Izzdin Shafiq, Isa Halim, Taufiq Rahmat, Raihan Rahman, Shahdan Sulaiman, Yasir Hanapi, Firdaus Kasman, Pravin Guanasagaran


Khairul Amri, Agu Casmir, Khairul Nizam, Fazli Ayob, Sufian Anuar, Gabriel Quak

stupid name for a football team but im quite impressed with the choice of forwards. hope khairul amri can stay fit
At the end of the day, the fixtures will still be team Singapore, eg. Selangor vs Singapore, not Selangor vs LionsXII...
i can acccept it if it say lions XI but lionsXII? the name can be manipulated to insults.....
