Lions have been improving: FAS President Lim Kia Tong

Oct 20, 2017 ,

After being ranked 173rd in the latest world football rankings, Football Association of Singapore President Lim Kia Tong said today in a statement that the “the National Team’s performances have been improving, although the results might not have gone their way.”

We are unsure if Mr Lim have been watching the same matches which we have been watching though because we wonder what he means when he says that the national team’s performances have been improving.

His comments came in the form of a statement which was released to announce two upcoming matches.

Singapore’s Lions will finally play two matches at the National Stadium when they take on Lebanon in a friendly on 9 November and then Bahrain on 14 November for the Asian Cup qualifier.

See full statement here.

The match against Bahrain will be the first Asian Cup 2019 qualifier to the played at the National Stadium.

The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) used the Jalan Besar Stadium for its qualifiers against Turkmenistan and Chinese Taipei.

Despite not utilising the National Stadium for its earlier qualifying matches, FAS President Lim Kia Tong said: “We have always said that we want to make the National Stadium the Home of our Lions, so we are happy to be playing these two matches at the National Stadium.”
