Biography: Born on 22 December 1990, Gabriel is a speedy midfielder, unafraid of taking on opposing full backs and whipping in a mean cross into the box. He is the best local left-sided midfielder to emerge in recent years, following the footsteps of former internationals Zulkarnaen Zainal and Lee Man Hon. He first came into the spotlight in 2006 when he was part of the Singapore team that did creditably on home soil in the Asian age-group tournament that year. His undoubted talents have seen him rise through the junior ranks, culminating in his senior debut for COURTS Young Lions in 2008 and earning a bronze medal for the Singapore Under-23 side a year later.
