Ex-Singapore national team player and football legend from the 70s and 80s, Arshad Khamis, passed away suddenly in his home in Canada on Friday morning Singapore time.

Arshad was a key member of the Singapore team and in his heydays in the late 70s and early 80s, he was in the Singapore team that won the Malaysia Cup in 1977 and 1980. He also represented the Singapore Malays and Singapore Armed Forces Sports Association. Arshad emigrated to Canada in 1992 aged 42.

According to his wife, she was preparing lunch at their home in Canada on Thursday, while Arshad was resting on the couch. However, he did not respond when called, and paramedics were called. They failed to find a pulse, and he was suspected of having a heart attack. The late Arshad was scheduled to return to Singapore on Sunday to inform family and friends of his daughter's impending wedding in December.

FAS has said that Singapore's friendly match with Mongolia at Bishan Stadium on Friday will be marked with a one minute's silence before kick off as a remembrance to Arshad Khamis.
