SINGAPORE- The Singapore national team will sport a fresh look ahead of next week's biennial regional football tournament - the Asean Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup.

On Friday morning (Nov 11), Lions Hariss Harun, Faris Ramli and Sahil Suhaimi posed in the new national team jersey at Jalan Besar Stadium.

Featuring a precision fit to hug the contours of their torsos, with side panels that aid ventilation, the red Nike jerseys also boast an environmental message as each is made from 16 recycled plastic bottles.

The Lions' away kit will be in blue.

"We are very aware of how big this tournament is in Singapore and in the region but we are very focused and we are working very hard during training," said vice-captain Hariss.

"We will apply what we have to matches and come up with positive results."

The Lions will play tournament co-hosts Philippines on Nov 19 in their AFF Cup opener in Manila.

They are in Group A alongside defending champions Thailand and Indonesia.
