The Singapore trio will be part of the team to take on Indonesia in an official charity match to be held in Jakarta on May 11
Former LionsXII duo Shahril Ishak and Hariss Harun as well as Warriors FC custodian Hassan Sunny have been selected to represent Singapore in the Asean All-Stars side who are set to take on Indonesia on May 11.
The charity match is intended to raise funds for victims of Typhoon Haiyan that struck the Philippines last year.
The Singaporean trio will be joined by a host of stars from across the region with 10 AFF member nations providing players. Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam have the most number of representatives while Hassan Sunny is one of only two goalkeepers called up for the match.
Although Piayong Pue-on was expected to lead the team, Malaysia national coach, K.Rajagobal will instead take charge with the former Thailand star being unavailable for the match. The AFF had also targetted former Singapore coach Raddy Avramovic who is with Myanmar now, as well as former Thai coach Winfried Schaefer and former Philippines coach Michael Weiss. All three were also unvailable.
“We do not have a lot of time but being professionals I believe the players will all be ready for the match,” Rajagobal told AFF.com .“This is more of an exhibition match and what’s important is that we put up a good entertaining football for the fans. The bottom-line is that we want to contribute to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.”
Indonesia meanwhile have named a strong squad as well to face the Asean All Stars.
“The match is very important to us. It is not just another game,” Indonesia coach Alfred Riedl told AFF . “We are playing against quality players which means they are very capable of playing a very good game and giving us a hard time.”
The charity match will be played at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Senayan, Jakarta.
