Just one week after Izwan Mahbud’s stunning performance against Japan, he already has an invite to train with a J-League team Matsumoto Yamaga.
Newly-promoted Matsumoto Yamaga, is currently 14th in the 18-team J-League after 16 games, are keen on giving Izwan Mahbud a trial.
Yamaga’s vice-president Yoshiyuki Kato said: “It’s hard to judge from one game, but he had a dominating performance. The way he threw himself about and kept his concentration throughout was very impressive. “We would like to see him in practice.”
When queried if that constituted an invite for the custodian, Kato said: “Yes.”
Kato was speaking at a press conference to unveil the three Singapore Under-14 players who are joining the Japanese outfit for a week-long training stint.
