S-LEAGUE: ALBIREX KNOCKS HOUGANG OFF THE TOP

It was a homecoming of sorts as Albirex Niigata returned to a new synthetic turf at the Jurong East Stadium for their first home game of the season. And boy, did the White Swans prove that they are the real deal both off and on the pitch with a comprehensive 2-0 victory over pretenders Hougang United who fell off the S.League summit into second place. Into their 13th season, Albirex have now established themselves as a model of professionalism and it is easy to see why. It is hopefully also not that difficult for the local S.League teams to follow suit.

JERMAINE PENNANT STARS AS TAMPINES ROVERS TRASH SJDC FOUR-NIL IN AFC CUP

Singaporean teams got off to a good start in the second-tier AFC club competition, with Tampines Rovers beating Bangladesh's Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club 4-0 at Jalan Besar and Balestier Khalsa holding New Radiant to a 2-2 draw in the Maldives last night. In terms of result, they delivered one that equals their biggest AFC Cup win, with former Arsenal and Liverpool star Jermaine Pennant involved in all four goals. While the 33-year-old marquee signing is clearly no longer the flying winger he once was, he was still too good for the opponents who were making their debut in the AFC Cup proper.
