"The team is in a good place at the moment. This is the first time an U20s team has appeared at the World stage, although we have not played against many of the teams except China, we hope we can implement our game plan, with the goal to reach the semi-finals, ” said Head Coach Ng Chok Shing. NG looks forward to the high-level competition for Hong Kong as this tournament will play an essential foundation for the team's growth and development.

“We believe this squad will be the future of Hong Kong, and we hope this tournament will test their mettle against some stern opposition. Captain Lee Siu Nam will be the anchor of the team in midfield, along with his with all-time teammate TSANG Ho Keung; the experienced partnership should provide the spark required for the team.”

LEE Siu Nam, Captain of Hong Kong U20s Touch team, said with the increased fitness and training intensity, he believes the team is in good shape to handle heat and humidity in Malaysia. “We are ready to go.
