Football: Lions goalie Izwan Mahbud ruled out of friendly against China tonight
SINGAPORE national football team goalkeeper Izwan Mahbud has been withdrawn from tonight's international friendly match against China owing to a groin injury.
The LionsXII custodian, who is with the squad in Tianjin, is also unlikely to link up with the national Under-23s at the Merdeka Tournament in Pahang from Sept 7 to 14, which features hosts Malaysia, Myanmar and a Thai selection side.
Warriors FC No. 1 Hassan Sunny is expected to take Izwan's place in the starting line-up against China tonight.
