Joy for Singapore
Two early goals for Singapore got their World Cup bid started last night at Kallang. Aleksander Duric got the first on eight minutes then Fazrul Nawaz got the second on 23.
The match was watched by a crowd of just over 10,000.
In the other match in the group Uzbekistan beat Saudi Arabia 3-0 in Tashkent. The Uzbeks lead the group with six points from two games while Singapore are second, ahead of Saudi on goal diference with three points. Getting something from their away games will be crucial for Singapore if they are to progress to the next stages.
Thailand were less fortunate going down 1-0 at home to Oman to a goal in the first minute. After their first two games the Thais are pointless and stuck at the bottom of the table. Bahrain lead the group with six points after beating Japan 1-0. Both Japan and Oman have three points.
