Juventus-Singapore game to start earlier
Football fans, get ready for an earlier kick-off when reigning Serie A champions Juventus meet a Singapore selection team on August 16.
The historic match, to be held at the Sports Hub's new National Stadium, will start at 6pm than at the original timing of 7.30pm, website fourfourtwo said. Organisers said in a statement on Tuesday (July 29) that "operational reasons" led to the game being held earlier.
No harm though, as that means you'll get to see the star-studded team a full 90 minutes ahead.
Some of the big names coming this way are World Cup star Paul Pogba, midfielder Andrea Pirlo, legendary goalkeeper and captain Gianluigi Buffon, Argentine striker Carlos Tevez and new signings like Patrice Evra (previously from Manchester United) and Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata.
