Singapore play warm-up match against Hong Kong before key Asian Cup qualifier

Singapore will take a warm-up match against Hong Kong on 31 August ahead the crucial 2019 AFC Asian Cup qualifier against Turkmenistan.

On the official website of Asia Football Confederation (AFC), Singapore Head Coach V. Sundram Moorthy said the friendly against Hong Kong will be valuable as it will help prepare the team for the Turkmenistan match.

“The qualifier against Turkmenistan will be an important one for the team as we work towards qualifying for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

“The friendly against Hong Kong will give us a good opportunity to prepare before facing Turkmenistan, and we want the fans to come down to Jalan Besar Stadium to cheer the team on for both games.”

Currently, the Lions have earned only one point from their opening two qualifiers, including a goalless away draw with Bahrain and a 2-1 home disappointing defeat to Chinese Taipei.
