Khairul Amri made his long-awaited LionsXII debut last night in a friendly match with Johor FA at the Larkin Stadium, which the LionsXII won 4-3.
Ninety-nine per cent.

FIRST XI 0

The LionsXII bounced back from their defeat by PKNS last Saturday to thrash the same team 5-0 at the Jalan Besar Stadium last night.
The wait is over. Agu Casmir has scored. Twice.
After 527 agonising minutes, the LionsXII striker finally ended his goal drought last night.

That is the assurance coach V Sundramoorthy and captain Shahril Ishak have given ahead of the Malaysian Super League clash against PKNS.
