Hassan shines for All-Stars

An Asean All-Stars outfit featuring three Singapore internationals 
went down 1-0 to an Indonesia XI in a charity match at the Gelora Bung Karno stadium in Jakarta last 
night.

Singapore skipper Shahril Ishak wore the armband for the All-Star team, and fellow Lions midfield star Hariss Harun and goalkeeper Hassan Sunny also made the starting 11.

The Warriors FC shot-stopper 
put in a sterling shift between the sticks, pulling off three stunning second-half saves to deny Ferdinand Sinaga, Zulham Zamrun and Indonesia's Holland-born star Bruno Maitimo.

He was blameless for the only strike of the game, an own goal by Malaysia captain Safiq Rahim in the 14th minute.

The match was a fundraiser for 
the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, 
which killed over 6,000 people in 
the Philippines last November.
