Take a look at the 24-member Maldives squad that has been registered for SAFF Championship…
Maldives registered their first win of the SAFF Championship 2021 when they beat Bangladesh 2-0 on Thursday at the National Football Stadium in Male.
Maldives had prepared well for the tournament. They played two friendlies in Qatar, where they won 4-2 against Lusail FC and drew 1-1 with Army National Team. After the two matches, coach Ali Suzain pruned the final squad to 24 members from the initial 29. The five players who failed to make the cut are: Ali Shamis, Ahmed Abdulla, Moosa Yameen, midfielder Asfad Habeeb and forward Hassan Nazeem.
The Red Snappers will play their next match against Sri Lanka on October 10 at the National Football Stadium in Male.
