Lions’ boss Tatsuma Yoshida has called up a total of 22 players – with 11 from the Lion City Sailors’ squad – for a series of training sessions during the upcoming FIFA international window starting on 31 August.

This includes a first call-up for Song Ui-young, who last week announced his successful application for Singapore citizenship.

“We are fully supportive of our national cause, and take immense pride in having our own Sailors represent Singapore,” said Sailors’ Chief Executive, Chew Chun-Liang.

“It makes it extra special that Song has also received a call-up to follow up on his Singapore citizenship and take his first step towards becoming a full-fledged Lion. I’m glad he will have his Sailors’ family to rely on at his first Lions’ training sessions.”
