Instant Reaction : Iran 6-0 Singapore (edited)

Lionel Lewis prepared to take the goal kick.

"Is it fair to say when one moment of madness would define the outcome of a game?"

I'm not sure if that's a fair statement but somehow that's the tendancy of people trying to find a scapegoat when things went horribly wrong.

Ismail Yunos was one being singled out, by netizens, as one such "scapegoat" when he was sent off for a illegal tackle made and saw he received the marching order.


Youtube clip of Ismail being sent off...

Unforeseen circumstance like this saw the Lions had to reshuffle any game plan laid out by coach Raddy, who I was told being very pissed for such foul committed by Ismail.

As the result, the whole game plan was derailed with players forcing to adjust to the hastily-changed tactics and not to mention the freezing Tehran weather that crippled the boys.

6-0, that was the scoreline and number of defensive lapses saw the second-stringer Iranian walloped us...

"EDMW" folks made their presence felt during the livestreaming (above) and gave their comments after the match on their forum...

  1. At first when i saw the result yesterday. I tot ismail Yusnos is at fault again for getting sent off. But reading today online report you knew that the Lebanese referee must be siding Iran. It happens so many time arab referees siding arab teams. I think the whole AFC is towards the middle eastern team remember the ridiculous decision to allow Saudi to play their away game with Lebanon at Saudi.

    Anyway not to hide away the fact, Iran is head and shoulder above us in terms of ability and we really have no chance again them but to get stuff 6-0 is hard to stomache and seems like the qualifying for the next asian cup will have to wait again.

  2. No comment on the referee's performance but it was a poor display by our boys..

    The lapse in defence was pretty shocking especially if you recalled how fast the Iranians hit back with those loads of goals..

    But then and again let's not dwell over it and move ahead..
