The much awaited national provisional squad list was made know just a hour ago at the Jalan Besar Stadium (as pictured below).
(Pictured above) These 10 players are classified as "NS" group which coach Raddy can select them, but subject to NS rulings.
As what I told a friend days ago that I hope that disappointment years ago when the "dazzler" V Sundramoorthy was not selected by the then national coach Vincent Subramaniam, despite the call of him to do so would not resurface this time round.
But much to the disappointment it was sad to note that Tampines Rovers ace Ahmad Latiff Khamarudin (pictured above) did not make the cut despite his stellar performance in the recent years after last featured in the red jersey in 2005.
Plenty of surprises that came along the way when Tanjong Pagar United's Delwinder Singh and Balestier Khalsa's Andrew Tan with Gombak's Ismail Yunos (who recently back in action after a lengthy injury) were being selected for squad.
Probably the biggest surprises (if you see that way too) are the axing of notable players like those guys based in Indonesia like Baihakki Khaizan, Noh Alam Shah, Ridhuan Muhamad, Agu Casmir and Precious Emuejeraye.
In case, some of you can't have a clear view of the list of 33, here's the list from the FAS media release.
