THRILLING MOMENT FOR A LIFELONG REDS FAN

"I am very happy to see Liverpool, a team that I supporting since my primary school days, back in Singapore after such a long period, especially given the present situation due to the pandemic when some are still hesitant to make a trip to Anfield (Liverpool's home ground) to see the players in live action which is why I am glad that I am able to see them in person in this coming July." said Goh who works in the gaming industry.
