The Lions have named a strong squad for the upcoming AFF U23 Championship

Senior internationals Ilhan Fandi, Saifullah Akbar, Nur Adam Abdullah and Jacob Mahler have been named in the provisional Singapore Under-23 squad for the upcoming AFF Championship in Cambodia.

Ilhan, Saifullah and Nur Adam were all part of the successful Singapore squad that made it to the semi-finals at the Suzuki Cup back in December, although the youngsters had to settle for bit-part roles at the tournament on home soil.

Singapore will now be looking to build on that successful campaign at the underage tournament, with the Lions taking part in the U-23 competition for only the second time after sitting out the 2019 edition.

Singapore were drawn in Group C alongside Thailand and Vietnam, who have both decided to send their U-21 squads to the tournament.

They kick off their campaign with a match against the War Elephants on February 16, before locking horns with Vietnam on February 19.
