Overseas trio could get Singapore call-up

Singapore could hand international call-ups to foreign-born trio Jordan Webb, Sirina Camara and Song Ui Yong.

New Football Association of Singapore president Lim Kia Tong has confirmed that he has held discussions with coach V Sundramoorthy about turning to overseas talent to boost the country’s struggling national team.

Warriors FC’s Canadian-born winger Webb, along with Home United’s French defender Sirina Camara and South Korean team-mate Song are all under consideration.

The trio are eligible to represent their adopted nation after completing a five-year residency period.

“I had a long conversation with Sundram, and I told him he must do something to bring up the national team,” Lim told The New Paper.

“We spoke about the need for the FAS to perhaps consider bringing in well-established foreign players here, and we spoke about Song, Webb and Camara.

“I shared with him that our focus will be to develop young players, but I’ve asked him to put up a strong paper and perhaps work with stakeholders on this.”
