Adding big star, Singapore U22 aims SEA Games 30th's gold medal

Singapore U22 may not be appraised highly at SEA Games, but they are focusing on the first place. The root cause is Singapore U22 is recently accepted to have some superstars from the national football team.

Under the regulations of the men's football tournament at the 2019 SEA Games, each team has the right to add 2 more players aged more than 22 into the squad. As a result, Singapore U22 is aiming to gain the Gold Medal thanks to superstars from the national football team.

According to the head coach Fandi Ahmad, one of them is Faris Ramli. At present, he is the best striker in Singapore, hence his appearance can help Ahmad solve the problems in offense strategies.

In 2019, Faris Ramli scored 17 goals in 27 games for Hougang United FC, one of the best clubs in Singapore. His form impressed scouts of Malaysia's Terengganu FC, hence he will play for them next season.

Moreover, he also scored regularly at the international level. Faris Ramli is witnessing an unforgettable year in Singapore national football team when he scored 3 goals against Malaysia, Solomon Islands, and Yemen. It is really impressive compared to 2018 when he scored only one time.

Commenting about Faris Ramli, coach Fandi Ahmad praised him highly because of his abilities. Ramli is not only good at controlling the ball but also in dribbling and passing. Besides Faris, another else choice for a player older than 22 years old is defender Tajeli Salamat.

Though his main position is right-back, the 25-year-old player also can play at left-back and center-back as ordered. More importantly, Fandi Ahmad is convincing Norway's Raufoss IL to let Ikhsan Fandi play at SEA Games. Ikhsan is Fandi's second son who scored 7 goals for the Singapore team in 16 matches.
