Pretty close matchup on the plastic surface, which has always been the bane for many foreign sides, yet the Sparks looked pretty composed on it.
Although they found it tough to go against the Tampines backline anchored by Fahrudin Mustafic, who virtually repelled everything that was thrown to his direction in the match.

After the match, Sparks' team manager Joseph Vincent Santos shared his appreciation of taking part this tournament, despite losing in the end.
Said Santos:"There are so many positives from today's game, and we hope to learn as much from this tournament to channel to our semi-professional league back home."
