Two friendlies for Lions

Singapore will take on Hong Kong and Papua New Guinea in upcoming "A" international friendlies next month and October, according to Fifa.

Papua New Guinea, 200th in the Fifa rankings, will have a training tour in Singapore from Sept 2 to 14, and have requested for a friendly with the Lions - Fifa-ranked 152 - on Sept 6.

The Lions will then take on Hong Kong - Fifa-ranked 161 - on Sept 9 at home before the away match on Oct 10.

It is believed that the home matches will be held at the Hougang Stadium as the pitch at the National Stadium continues to undergo maintenance work.
