The recent controversy during our match against Burma in the AFF Suzuki Cup prompted me to blog something on it for an independent soccer blog - "Soccer City FC".
Extracted from the article as below:
"As what a commentator joked on the previous night's live telecast of the match between Singapore and Myanmar in the Suzuki Cup Group A fixture, "Singapore seems to be always in this "walk-out" controversy" when the Myanmarese staged a "walk-out" after Singapore scored their third goal in a bizarre fashion.
Vietnamese referee Phung Dinh Dung was the man of that moment when he allowed Singapore to restart the game with a free-kick quickly taken that caught the Myanmar players unaware (whom they thought the referee would only restart the game after the injured Singapore player had given treatment to his injury) and allowed Nigerian-born striker Agu Casmir to score his second of the night,
Tempers flared and saw Myanmarese 'keeper Aung Aung Oo deservedly sent off for push the referee in the commotion following Agu's goal."
At the meantime, "Soccer City FC" is being nominated for the Best New Football Blog at Soccerlens 2008 Awards.

Nice effort by the guys behind this blog who truly deserved the "pat-at-the-back" for their effort.
