SINGAPORE: In SEA games football, Singapore's U-23 team currently tops Group A on seven points, after a 2-0 win over Brunei on Friday.
They remain undefeated after three matches but face the toughest test in their last group tie on Sunday against defending champions Malaysia.
Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong, who watched the Singapore vs Brunei game, said the boys are well prepared.
Mr Wong said: "What happens in that match would decide their fate of the tournament, so they said they are treating this match like the finals. I think that's the kind of attitude and spirit that they have for the coming game, so I wish them all the best and I certainly hope they will do best against Malaysia and get through to the next round."
Hariss Harun, the captain of the team, said that the team will be focused on the task of qualifying for the next round. Hariss added: "Regroup, recover well for Sunday's game and go and do our best for the game because qualification is at stake.
"But of course, we are in a good position, we want to take advantage of that and progress to the semi-finals and we will, as a team, keep our minds on the task."
Head coach Aide Iskandar remained hopeful of getting a result, but admitted that it will not be easy. He said: "I can always depend on them. I think against Malaysia, it will be tough because Malaysia are the favourites."
