Goals win games and going by that logic, it will be a battle of the No. 10s tonight at the Canon Lion City Cup final at Jalan Besar Stadium.
To beat Ajax for the second time in eight days, and become the first Singaporean team to win the Canon Lion City Cup since 2006, Adam Swandi has to be at his creative best.
Here is the 16-year-old who, with the aid of his very capable team-mates, destroyed Vasco da Gama in Friday’s semi-final with his stepovers, tricks, flicks, goal and assists.
Standing in the Under-16s way of history are the Dutch, ably led by their own No. 10, Abdelhak Nouri.
Two-nil down against Man City in the semi-final, it was the pint-sized Abdelhak who led the fightback with a superb midfield display, where he scored a classy chip and made another for red-hot Ezra Walian, topscorer with five goals so far.
