SGP Hockey boys qualify for World Series Open.

Singapore’s national hockey men’s team put up an exhilarating performance and beat Thailand 4-1 to qualify for the World Hockey Series to be held in 2019.

Goals from Zul’kepli Ferdaus, Johari Ahmad (2) and Norman Teo sealed Singapore’s victory.

The Thais responded through Boon-art Thanakrit, a goal which was scant consolation.

Said skipper Ferdaus: “I am truly happy. The boys worked really hard throughout the week to achieve this.

“It shows that we might be young and inexperienced but passion and hard work always pays off.”

National Coach K Rajan added: “Since the beginning of the tournament the team has played consistent hockey.

“The boys started calmly and kept to the game plan, and it made our job much easier.”

The World Series Open is also the qualifiers for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, with 20 teams in the mix.

On Saturday (30 June), Singapore’s women’s team beat Kazakhstan to finish the tournament in third place.
