Football: Fandi Ahmad names LionsXII squad for 2014 MSL season

SINGAPORE: New LionsXII head coach Fandi Ahmad has named his squad for the upcoming Malaysian Super League (MSL) season.

There are 24 players in the team -- seven of them have been drafted in from S.League clubs.

In a statement, the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) said this ensures a good balance of experience and new blood for the coming season.

The team will kick off the new campaign with a charity shield match against Pahang on January 17, 2014.

"A number of these players participated in international friendly matches and tournaments and now at the SEA Games, and they will certainly add a lot of invaluable experience and resilience to the squad," Fandi said.

"The young players will be able to learn from their seniors, which is essential to their long-term development that will eventually benefit the squad in our challenge for top honours," he added.

The full fixtures for the new MSL season will be announced at a later date.
