Struggling at the start
(first blog using WI-FI)
As a die-hard fan of the Lions, one must not blame them for losing their unbeaten streak that stretched from the beginning of last year.
A long lay-off since the end of the League season, coupled with some negative controversies surrounded the team, it's not difficult to blame the boys for losing to the under-strength Danes, who fielded a large number of debutant as well.
Tampines' Noh "Ah Long" Alam Shah's blunt finishing in front of the goal, shall served as a barometer of the Lions' display on the field.
Wasn't really sure how the second goal was scored but the first Danish goal was clearly a result of poor defensive work at the back.
Perhaps Indra Sahdan provided the only spark for the home team when he lived up again to his reputation for scoring against big teams when he finished his effort with first touch following a nce threaded pass from "Ah Long" at the edge of the box.
Prior the start of the game, national skipper Aide Iskandar was presented a special T-shirt that marked his 100 appearance for the national team, by his wife.
Though at the end of the game, coach Raddy did registered his unpleasantness for the small turnout, despite having the Danes , whom being one of the top teams in Europe.
Personally, I am sure big numbers of fans would love to turn out at the stadium, if only the Danes don't shown that kind of "BOCHUP" attitude in the first place.
