SINGAPORE YOUTHS LOST FOOTBALL GAME AGAIN, THIS TIME TO NEW CALEDONIA

Dear A.S.S. Editor

In news that does not surprise anyone anymore who is a fan of football, especially local football, the Singapore Under 18’s loss again in a friendly last night. This time, they were beaten by New Caledonia 2-1 at Bishan Stadium. So, anyone knows were New Caledonia is?

It is actually a French territory comprising dozens of islands in the South Pacific with an estimated population of 278,000, which is so much lesser than Singapore’s millions in population. The Singapore U-18 team are preparing for the 2018 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U-19 Championship qualifier next month, when they will meet hosts Mongolia, Japan and Thailand in Group I.

Last month, at the Asean Football Federation (AFF) U-18 Championship in Yangon, the U-18s beat Cambodia and Laos 5-3 and 3-0 respectively, but lost to Malaysia (3-1), Thailand (2-0), and Timor Leste (3-1).
