Singapore head coach: We have to attack Turkmenistan

Singapore head coach V. Sundram Moorthy has been looking forward a win over Turkmenistan on Tuesday to keep his AFC Asian Cup hopes alive.

“We need something to keep our hopes alive. We have to try to attack to score goals,” Sundram told reporters at the pre-match conference on Monday, reported by The Straits Times.

“It will be a difficult game (against Turkmenistan), they are physically strong. But we are playing at Jalan Besar, the boys will be motivated to play for the fans, anything can happen.”

Singapore started well with a creditable 0-0 draw at Bahrain but stumbled to a 2-1 defeat to Chinese Taipei at home and slid to bottom of the four-team group with one point.
