Tampines Rovers Football Club were seems clueless when they took on to the field against the Filipinos with the lack of courage and decisive instinct to make their way to the heartland of their opponents. Another woeful exit from the continent that one wouldn't feel sorry about it.

Due credit to the hastily assembled Singapore side, as they did give their hosts a tough time with their calm composed demeanour in front of a hostile crowd. Aleksandar Duric scored the first goal of the match Ahmad Latiff (R) sticked close to Doe in the game With that approach in mind, the visitors from south side of the Causeway drew first blood in sixth minute with a simple Aleksandar Duric-style tap-in from close range within the six yard box from the man himself to silence the Merah-Kuning folks.

The attempt was tipped over by Selangor’s custodian, Rashid Hassan. The ex-Lions soon took the lead just a minute later when a cross by Idham Ridan met Steven Tan in the penalty area.

DAY ONE - Arrival from Singapore Courts Young Lions' Ruzaini Zainal (pictured above) could consider taking up a sideline as a beverage stall operator eh? This was taken while at a half-way stop in Negri Sembilan before heading up to Shah Alam. The mystical iconic Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque or "Blue Mosque" (pictured above) as what it was seen as when the contingent arrived at the designated accommodation in the state capital of Selangor. DAY TWO - Match Day Datuk Santokh Singh (pictured above left), the legendary defender who sent shivers down the spines of many strikers back in the 1970s, greets the Sultan of Selangor, HRH Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah before the Veterans match.

Amy wowed the crowds!!!

That's Amy for you!!!  I just could not recall when was the last time my hair actually STAND during a match, but when Malay rock legend Amy of Search fame wowed his audience of his classic - ISABELLA during the half time of the veterans match - it did! Such an impact was that song that whole stadium actually sang it when it was performed by the legendary singer during the interval. It's not just having such performance by those big name and whose who in the Malay entertainment scene, but the footballing atmosphere that is not often experienced back at home. The Klang Valley supporters were out in full force!! That's probably one of the reason why some of us are looking forward to the annual Sultan of Selangor Cup if it's being staged in Shah Alam. You see, the only word to describe the whole atmosphere at Stadium Shah Alam was - ELECTRIFYING! Just like once a senior figure in local football told me,"In REAL football, players cannot even hear among t

Al-Fateha... Nasir Jalil

"Here's the 'Crazy Horse'!!" said former Singapore captain Fandi Ahmad  prior to the kick-off of the veteran match of the 2009 Sultan of Selangor Cup at the Jalan Besar Stadium, as stood beside him (pictured below) was none other than Nasir Jalil (pictured below left in dark-coloured attire) popularly known by that nickname. That was the first and last time I saw this great player, who was also known as the "Supersub" in that legendary 1977 team that won the Malaysia Cup under the late "Uncle" Choo Seng Quee. Known for his boundless energy on the field, it was his equalizer in that epic final that eventually led to Quah Kim Song (pictured below on the left) to score the extra-time winner to beat Penang at the Merdeka Stadium and saw the Republic won the Cup for the first time in 12 years. "He was a great individual and a wonderful footballer who earned the nickname ‘Crazy Horse’ for his great passion shown on the football pitch. &q
