Duric Out Of National Squad

Has father time finally caught up with the ageless Aleksander Duric?

The striker who has netted 73.83 zillion goals during his 416 year Singapore career, he was having a kick around on the beach when some toffee nosed English git on a boat sailed past and decided to plant the Union flag where the penalty spot was, has been omitted from the 27 man squad that has been called up to play against Hong Kong and Malaysia in June.

Duric, pictured left hiding from the sun, helped Tampines Rovers to the SLeague title last season and his team mate, the far younger Mustafic Fahruddin, has been called up while Ahmad Latiff continues to be ignored by coach Raddy Avramovic.

Of course in ASEAN Cup year there is no guarantee Duric's international career is over. With two teams specifically set up to prime players for the national team, Young Lions and LionsXII, Avramovic has plenty of options to check out before the end of the year.

Say it isn't so! Apart from Fernando De Moraes playing for the Futsalroos, as far as I know he's the only other South player to be on the international scene.
Could have been worse - retro coaches Robert Alberts or PN Sivaji or Kenny Dalglish taking over the teams...
