Stange wants more commitment from national U-23s

SEA Games gold will remain a dream unless players train like professionals, says Stange

WARNING: Singapore national coach Bernd Stange (above) says the Under-23 team's results in the Austria training tour are a warning sign to the team to buck up if they want to win the South-east Asia Games gold next year.
MUSCLE: Irfan Fandi (in red) in action for the Singapore U-23 team against SSK in Austria. The Republic won 2-0.

National coach Bernd Stange believes more needs to be done to give the Republic’s Under-23 team a genuine shot at becoming the first Singapore side to strike gold at the SEA Games.
