|Watching the game from the stands|
Slated to be the last warming up prior to the team's departure to the SEA Games in Myanmar, the Cubs did show the type of "passing-and-dominating" style of football, preached by Lions coach Bernd Stange, right from the start but faltered when it matter the most - putting the ball to the back of the net.
Having most of the possession that broke down the Young Azkals fortress on several occasions, the Cubs were left frustrated on those rued chances that they created with Sahil Suhaimi missing the sitter from eight yards away in the 18th minute accounted as the biggest miss of all.

The scoreline maintained the way it was till the interval before it was altered in the 52nd minute with a Shafiq Ghani effort off a ball threaded in by Sahil who earlier missed another golden in the 48th minute for placing his shot wide with little resistance in front of him.

With almost everything set in the jig, what is now left will be finding the scoring touch before the test begins in a week time.
