I am deeply touched by the scenes of celebrations at the final whistle at the Bukit Jalil Stadium in KL.
Tears of joy from the players and officials on the pitch; fans embracing each other in the stands; and viewers and fans in Singapore posting congratulatory messages on social media – these clearly reflect the appeal of the beautiful game we love.
I extend my congratulations to LIONSXII, Coach Fandi & Nazri, the back room staff and also the team behind the team including our colleagues from the various departments who have played their part to continue to develop football talents.
And to our loyal fans, thank you for coming all the way to support our boys and also cheering our boys back home. Let us continue to come together and support our teams.
Soon our U23 Young Lions will be in action at the SEA Games and the Singapore National Team will be playing two World Cup qualifier games against Japan and Cambodia.
Together with your support, our boys will aspire to put up a good showing!
Once again, congratulations to the LIONSXII and a heart-felt thank you to all our fans who traveled to KL for the match and also to those who had sent us words of encouragement. – Zaï
