Singapore striker Ikhsan Fandi: Irfan and I are slowly stepping out of dad's shadow
Irfan and Ikhsan are considered key players in their father’s plans since the Singapore football icon replaced V. Sundram Moorthy as head coach of the national team in May.
The two brothers played in Singapore’s 1-1 draw and 2-0 win against Mauritius and Fiji respectively.
While Irfan continued cementing his spot in central defence, it was Ikhsan who stole the limelight with two goals in his first two starts for the Lions.
Shahril Ishak set him up for a superb equaliser in the Mauritius game before Gabriel Quak did the same for him in the Fiji match.
