Singapore squad for Eximbank Cup

SINGAPORE, 24 September 2010: The Singapore Asian Games team will be travelling to Ho Chi Minh City on 26 September for the Eximbank Cup in Vietnam. With the Asian Games fast approaching, Singapore will face a stern test as they play the Olympic teams of Iran, Malaysia, and host Vietnam in preparation for the Guangzhou bound games in China this November.

From the 20 players named by National coach Radojko Avramovic, Balestier Khalsa midfielder Syafiq Zainal, NFA U-18 striker Al-Qaasimy Abdul Rahman and SAFFC forward Erwan Gurnawan are all poised to make their debut as they travel with the Singapore Asian Games Team for the first time. Erwan will be most remembered for scoring the winner for SAFFC against Chinese Henan Jianye, giving Singapore our first ever victory in the prestigious AFC Asian Champions League in April.

“We have brought in some new players to the team and this tournament will give them the ideal opportunity to gain some valuable international exposure while giving us the chance to test these players against some very good opponents. Furthermore, with for some of the new players called up, this trip is a good platform for the team to take shape cohesively as a unit.”

Singapore will kick start their campaign against Asian powerhouses Iran on Tuesday, 28 September before playing host Vietnam on Thursday, 30 September. They will end the tournament against neighbours Malaysia on Saturday, 02 October before returning back to Singapore the next day.
