The First Training session for the Lions in 2006
It's been raining for the past three days and when was made know that the national team will be conducting their first centralised training on this day (which is Hari Raya Haji), I was wondering if the session is going on.
So off l went to the Jalan Besar stadium at close to 6pm.
And here l was at the home of Singapore football, where the first training session of the year was conducted.
Should have this been a year ago, nobody would dare to risk their life to train on the pitch which had since made way to the newly-laid artificial pitch.
Likes of Tampines's Mustafic Fahrudin and Bah Mamadou of Home Utd were at the training session for the first time since their naturalization.
While the likes of Ashrin Shariff and Shi Jia Yi were doing their light training.
Some fine touches were shown during the training session, though it's still early to say if the team are rwady for the challenge ahead.
