SINGAPORE - The national women's football team will face the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in two friendly matches at the Jalan Besar Stadium next month.
A Singapore selection line-up will face the Middle East side on Jan 4 before the Lionesses host the visitors on Jan 6. Entry to both games are free.
The UAE will be in town from Jan 2 for a week-long training camp. They and Singapore are preparing for the AFC Women's Asian Cup 2018 Qualifiers held in April.
Singapore's head coach Yeong Sheau Shyan said in a media release on Friday (Dec 30): "Our Lionesses may be young with an average age of 22.6 years, but they are looking forward to taking on tough challenges like this, which will go a long way in preparing them for the upcoming Asean Football Federation Women's Championship 2017 in March."
