The Singapore Under-23 team has been drawn in Group C of the Asian Games football tournament, alongside Oman, Palestine and Tajikistan.
The squad to compete in next month's Asiad, hosted in Incheon, South Korea, will be led by national coach Bernd Stange and assisted by Court Young Lions coach Aide Iskandar.
Said Stange: "Our players are raring to go after our recent training tour of Austria in July, and the 3-2 away win over Bahrain in early August has also lifted their confidence.
