Singaporecoach V. Sundramoorthy demands goals and tactical discipline from his side

Singapore coach V Sundramoorthy has demanded goals and tactical discipline from his side ahead of the 2019 Asian Cup qualifier against Turkmenistan in Ashgabat next Tuesday.

“We haven’t been scoring much recently, so yes, goals are definitely a concern for us,” Sundram told The New Paper in a phone interview on Wednesday.

“We have been working on other avenues of getting goals (rather than just from the forwards). We are trying to get our wingbacks to go forward and get goals, and encouraging goals from midfield, too.

“We’ve been working on set-pieces as well. We need sharper runs to the near and far posts, and better deliveries from corners and free-kicks.”

The Lion has been stranded at the bottom of Group E, with just two points from three games.
