Now, Singapore football is reduced to this.
A team representing the nation, littered with experienced internationals, agreed to a game of kickabout with their opponents to ensure both will continue on their Malaysia Cup adventure.
Johor FC will be satisfied, but I don’t think the Singapore team flying the nation’s colours in the Malaysia Cup for the first time in 17 years can justify being called the LionsXII after last night’s stomach-churning second-half performance.
Lions are brave, never cowed. They thrive on adventure, especially on their own patch. Instead, V Sundramoorthy's men settled for a draw.
