PETALING JAYA, May 7 (Bernama) -- National Under-23 head coach Datuk Ong Kim Swee has identified three candidates to wear the armband and lead the Malaysian team at the SEA Games 2015 in Singapore next month.

All three are incidentally from Johor, namely two from Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT) - Mohamad Amer Saidin and Gary Steven Robbat - plus Mohd Fandi Othman from JDT II.

In the SEA Games, Malaysia who are drawn in Group B with defending champion Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Brunei and Timor Leste are expected to have a difficult passage to win the gold medal.
