Albirex win 8th straight game

Albirex Niigata striker Shuhei Hoshino scored a double as the Japanese side maintained their perfect record after eight games in the Singapore Premier League by beating the Young Lions 3-1 at the Jalan Besar Stadium last night.

Hoshino, who had also bagged a double in Sunday's 2-1 win over Warriors FC, opened his account through an eighth-minute penalty before doubling his tally in the 49th minute.

Albirex substitute Kodai Sumikawa made it 3-0 two minutes into injury time before Naufal Azman pulled one back for the Young Lions two minutes later.
