“She also shared with me that her third son, Ilhan, is currently doing his National Service, just as his two older brothers, Irfan and Ikhsan, did before they embarked on their respective professional football careers.”

“A warm welcome to our new citizens, many of whom have worked and lived in Singapore for many years, married to our fellow Singaporeans and have Singaporean children, and already naturalized, just like Ms. Wendy Jacobs.

“How many times have Singapore been in the World Cup? How many times has South Africa been in the World Cup? I would leave it up to my children, but their father will help them in their direction. If football is their career, then what to do the statistics say? They tell you a lot. How far can you go in football in Singapore? How far can you go in South Africa? And you must start and decide young, whether you want to try and succeed in Europe early because you can’t just go from a 25-year-old playing in the S-League to saying ‘I want to play for Barcelona’.”
