TEAM-MATES when Singapore won a Malaysian league and cup Double in 1994, Fandi Ahmad and Nazri Nasir will join forces again 20 years later - at the helm of the LionsXII.

Former national captain Nazri was confirmed on Monday as assistant to Fandi - nine days after he was confirmed as successor to V. Sundramoorthy.

"It's like a dream to work with Fandi as a coach," Nazri said in a statement issued by the Football Association of Singapore.

The 42-year-old played under Fandi at Singapore Armed Forces FC (now known as Warriors FC) from 2000-2002.
