[Instant Reaction] A revenge that came 10 years later

After 3-0, Harimau fans started to exit (credit: Mr Milton Tan) For many Singapore fans, the date 18th December 2002 will always be remembered for the wrong reason. It was the day when the Lions lost 4-0 to Malaysia in front of a crowd of 40,000 in that year's Tiger Cup opener. Since then, despite an unbeaten run against its neighbours across the Causeway, which ended June this year in the Causeway Challenge, that remain the sore point in the recent years of Singapore football (notwithstanding the two Asean titles and reaching the highs in the World Cup qualifiers).

Even with the announcement by the Rams' management on their confirmation of being p

We won 4-0 but lack of mobility in passing and movement on-off the ball - cause for concern

Better perspective from here In their last prep match prior to the regional showdown, the Singapore national team had a run of game against a weak Pakistan side, who their coach admitted the lack of exposure on international level is one of the problems facing the cricket-mad nation in their football development. Speaking after the 4-0 thumping by the Lions at the "Wild Wild West" (Jurong West), Pakistan's coach Zaviša Milosavljević gave an insight on the football scene in the South Asian nation. "Politics is not the biggest problem facing Pakistan football." said the Serbian coach when asked if off-the-field circumstances are being the hindrance from moving forward for the game in the country. "It's poorly organized with a lot of resources not being used. "And one of the aims is to organize a proper youth system, as we are having players at 16, 17 years old playing at senior level without proper building up, which I think is a sensitiv
