Up for the cup

Singapore Cup

The SLeague takes a back seat for the time being as attention turns to the four foreign teams that will be trying their hand in the Singapore Cup which kicks off tonight. Jalan Besar is the venue as Young Lions host Phnom Penh Empire from Cambodia. Tomorrow Singaporean based Chinese side Dalian Shide will hope to take advantage of Home United’s recent poor form when they meet at Queenstown Stadium.

On Thursday Sengkang Punggol, who can’t score for love nor money, just two all season and one of them courtesy of an opponents charity, take on Tampines who thumped four past Home last weekend. The next day has the Cup holders take on Balestier Khalsa who are undergoing a mini revival at the moment but will it be enough to overcome the mighy Warriors?

Thai side the romantically named Thai Tobacco Monopoly, give us a T…, try their hand against inconsistent Gombak United while next Sunday fellow Thais Bangkok University mix it with Albirex Niigata.

The last two ties has Super Reds take on Geylang United and Woodlands against the side from Brunei DPMM.

It may be the Singapore Cup by name but with seven sides either foreign based or foreign backed and sponsorship from across the causeway it is almost a mini Asian Cup.


That Sengkang-Tampines match is actually on next Tuesday Anthony

Thursday's game is SAFFC v Balestier at CCK
