Saudi Arabia vs Singapore match information

Time: 01:00 (GMT+8) on October 11th, 2019

Venue: King Abdullah Sports City Stadium, Buraidah

Competition: Group D of 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier (AFC)

Coach Tastuma Yoshida has just listed 23 Singapore team players for the 2022 World Cup qualifier in October, in which he called a new 16-year-old player.

Specifically, 16-year-old star Farhan Zulkifli is one of 23 players that the Japanese strategist calls on the Singapore team to prepare for two World Cup qualifying matches in 2022 in October.

At the 2022 World Cup qualifier in Group D, the Singapore team will face Saudi Arabia in Jeddah on October 10 and Uzbekistan on the national stadium in Kallang on October 15.

To prepare for these two matches, Singapore will also play friendly against the Jordan team in Amman on 5-10. After the first two matches in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers, Singapore drew Yemen 2-2 on 5-9 and then defeated Palestine 2-1 on 10-9.

Compared to the Singapore squad that qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in September, coach Yoshida added two new elements. In addition to Hougang United's 16-year-old winger, Farhan Zulkifli, the Japanese tactician also calls Geylang midfielder Firdaus Kasman.

Farhan became the second-youngest player in Singapore's Premier League history to score. In June, Farhan scored against Home United to contribute to Hougang United's 2-0 victory when he was only 16 years and 231 days old.

Saudi Arabia, meanwhile, is still rated as the strongest team in Group D, but they only drew Yemen 2-2 in the first match last month. Therefore, Saudi Arabia will be very determined to win 3 points before Singapore to accelerate in this campaign. Saudi Arabia is one of the most powerful and traditional football teams in Asia. They also often qualify for the official FIFA World Cup and rubbed against the top teams in the Asia.

Historically, Saudi Arabia has met Singapore 9 times, in which Saudi Arabia won 7 games and drew 2. The last time the two teams met in the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier, then Singapore lost 0-3 and 0-2 after 2 legs.
