Singapore lose Serbian friendly

BELGRADE, 24 August 2010: Singapore went down 1-0 to Serbian First Division side FK Vojvodina Novi-Sad last night in the second of three friendly matches during their training camp in Belgrade, Serbia. The Lions had earlier lost 1-0 to a Serbia XI in their first game last Wednesday.

A 71st minute goal by Zeljko Damir after a defensive lapse proved to be the difference for both sides despite the Lions creating several good chances throughout the game.

The Lions had attended Vojvodina’s First Division match over the weekend when they claimed their first win of the new season 2-0 away to BSK Borca to currently lie in third place in the 17-team league.

Khairul Amri and Agu Casmir sat out the match with minor injuries while SAFFC keeper Shahril Jantan made his first away appearance for the Lions after more than six years.

Aleksandar Duric and captain Shahril Ishak had the best chances to open Singapore accounts in Serbia but could not convert the opportunities that came their way.

The Lions next play another First Division side, FK Jagodina in their final game on Wednesday 25 August before returning home the following day. FK Jagodina, like Monday’s opponents FK Vojvodina, have made an unbeaten start to the 2010-11 Serbian First Division season and will provide another stern test for our Lions.
