Sweet victory for the Lions against Laos

I AM writing with regard to the Asean Football Championship match between Singapore and Laos, which was held at the National Stadium on Jan15.

I would like to congratulate the Lions on their emphatic 11-0 victory over the Laotians. It was history in the making as I watched our boys put 11 past the hapless Laotians while, at the same time, erasing a 21-year-old record set during the Merlion Cup in 1986, in which Singapore demolished Indonesia 8-1.

It was my first experience going to the National Stadium to watch our Singapore football team play an international match and the victory made this experience all the more sweet.

Initially, I was expecting our team to win by a four-goal margin, but they surpassed my expectations. The win has injected confidence into the fans, regarding the ability of our football team and I am sure more fans will come to support the Lions in the remaining matches. I, myself, will definitely catch the remaining matches at the National Stadium.

Anyway, best of luck to the Lions for the rest of the Asean Football Championship tournament.

According to FIFA work ranking, Laos is ranked 150 and Singapore is at 126.
Why be satisfied with a small win against a weaker opponent?

Remember the scrapped
GOAL 2010 project? Is No. 126 the best we can achieved after all the $$ that had went it?

Should just stick with sailing

btw, oh yeah...Singapore beat Malaysia 5-4 on penalties...yeah to beating M'sia by the way who are also as lowly as Singapore in world rankings...Guess we can only be happy with beating these sub-standard opponents because Singapore themselves are just a bunch of no-hopers considering so many years after S-League has been incorporated...we still haven't really created a force to be reckoned with in the region...so maybe we should really be happy abt beating Msia since wins for Singapore dun come naturally in any case....
