National call-up for Gerald

17th May, 2018

By FRANCIS XAVIER

KOTA KINABALU: Another Sabah youngster – Gerald Gadit – has been picked to undergo centralised training cum selection trials for the national Under-19 squad.

The utility player, who can be deployed as left-back, right-back or centre-back, is among the 27 players that have been short-listed to attend a nine-day training cum selection trials. They are to report to camp at Wisma FAM on Sunday.

The 19-year-old Tenom-born Gerald is part of the State Under-21 30-member squad for the 2018 season. However, he featured mostly for the Under-19 squad thus far this season and only made a few appearances for the Under-21 side when their regular defenders were either injured or suspended.

Back in March, President’s Cupper, Evan Wensley Wenceslaus attended the national Under-21 centralised training. “I didn’t see this coming, and I’m a bit shocked when I was informed by the FAM about the call-up, but obviously, I’m very happy to have this opportunity,” said Evan when contacted yesterday.

“I’ll try my best to make the final squad,” he added.

The centralised training is part of the team’s early preparations for the 2018 AFF U-19 Championship in Indonesia in July 2018.

After the nine-day centralised training cum selection trials, head coach Bojan Hodak will short-list 23 players that will travel to Bangkok, Thailand on May 29 for training.

While in Thailand, they would play three friendly matches in a span of a week before returning home on June 5. The full list of the selected players is as follows – Muhammad Azhar Apandi, Nabil Hakim Bokhari, Mohamad Izzuddin Mohd Roslan, Muhammad Faizal Hafiq Omar (Kuala Lumpur), Muhammad Izreen Izwandy, Muhammad Nizarruddin Jazi, Zainul Ariffin Ahmad Lafifi (Melaka), Syed Muhammad Nasrulhaq Syed Bidin, Tuan Ahmad Muqris Tuan Noor Marzuki, Muhammad Hisyam Ismail (Terengganu), Nik Umar Nik Aziz, Mohamad Hakimi Abdullah (Kelantan), Sharvin Selvakumaran, Muhammad Fawzal Abdul Muthalib (Selangor), Nur Rifdi Fakhrullah Mohamad Razali, Muhammad Amirul Asraf Che Kob (Pahang), Muhammad Zhafir Mohd Yusoff, Muhammad Zafuan Azeman, Muhammad Fikri Zulkflee (Kedah), Gerald Gadit (Sabah), Javabilaarivin Nyanasegar (Negeri Sembilan), Awang Muhammad Faiz Hazziq (JDT III), Muhammad Al Imran Abdul Halim (UiTM), Yuganes Ganassan (MIFA), Ammar Akhmall Alias, Ahmad Tasnim Fitri Mohd Nasir (Felda FC), Shivan Pullay Asokan (PKNS).

The five players that have been put in the standby list in case any of the 27 players could not make the centralised training due to injury or any other reason are Hadi Fayyadh Abdul Razak, 18, (JDT II), Alif Safwan Sallahuddin, 18, (PKNP FC), Sharul Nazeem Zulpakar, 19, (Selangor), Aliff Haikal Hakim Lau, 18, (PKNS FC) and Megat Syafique Syazwan Mohd Khairul, 16, (SSMP-AMD Panthers).
