The final phase of preparations for Singapore's Under-23 football team kicked off on Wednesday, ahead of their South-east Asia (SEA) Games mission in Myanmar next month.
On a rainy evening at the Hougang Stadium, the team returned to training after two days of rest.
The U-23s have been drawn in Group A and open their campaign against Laos on Dec 8 in Naypyidaw.
Coach Aide Iskandar says the next 12 days will be spent fine-tuning, working on tactics and set-pieces and also reminding individual players of their responsibilities.
Barring any injuries, the 11 players slated to start against Laos will kick off the team's final tune-up, against the Philippines Under-23s, at Hougang Stadium on Sunday.
Said the 38-year-old: "Hopefully, the team put in another good performance.
"If nothing happens and there are no new injuries, I will field the best 11 available against the Philippines."
