Singapore will qualify for world cup in 20340.........

Recommended Posts

3rd Gear

Singapore returned to World Cup and Asian Cup qualifying action after more than 18 months on Thursday (Jun 3) with a 4-0 loss to Palestine.

The second round of joint qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and the 2023 AFC Asian Cup in China has resumed after a lengthy delay caused by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Palestine raced to a three-nil lead in the first half at the King Fahd International Stadium, prompting Singapore head coach Tatsuma Yoshida to make a double substitution at the break. But he admitted his match decisions had not gone the way he wanted.

“The boys tried, but in the first half, they were a bit nervous,” he said after the match.

“I am really disappointed (as) they can do more (and) that we could not show our full potential. I think if we played to our potential, maybe the result would be changed … I am very sorry for the Singapore fans.

“I feel big disappointment, big pain … But it’s not on (the players). It’s because of my management and it’s on me.”

The three goals Palestine were scored in a span of about 10 minutes and included two penalties by Tamer Seyam either side of an Oday Dabbagh strike. Yaser Hamed completed the scoresheet in the closing minutes of the game.

The result means Palestine overtake Singapore in the Group D standings on goal difference, having played a game more.

The match saw the international debuts of Ilhan Fandi and Saifullah Akbar, while Lions stalwart Baihakki Khaizan notched his 138th Singapore appearance, taking him to joint second on the country’s list of most-capped players.

The Lions sit fourth out of five teams in Group D after six games. Their remaining ties in the group are against Uzbekistan on Jun 7 (kick-off at 2am on Jun 8, Singapore time) and Saudi Arabia on Jun 11 (kick-off at 2am on Jun 12, Singapore time).

Saudi Arabia lead Group D on 11 points with Uzbekistan in second on nine. The sides have played five games apiece.

All remaining Group D matches are being played in the Saudi capital.

The top team of each of the eight second-round groups and the four best runners-up will progress to the third round of 2022 World Cup qualifying. They will also qualify for the 2023 Asian Cup.

The remaining teams will continue to compete for places at the 2023 Asian Cup in subsequent rounds of qualifiers.

Singapore kicked off their campaign for Qatar 2022 and China 2023 in September 2019, picking up seven points from five games before qualifying was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Elsewhere in Asian qualifying on Thursday, the United Arab Emirates beat Malaysia 4-0, Australia won 3-0 against Kuwait and Iran picked up a 3-1 victory over Hong Kong.

Bahrain drubbed Cambodia 8-0 and Nepal beat Taiwan 2-0 while Qatar, who have already qualified for the 2022 World Cup as hosts, edged out India 1-0.

Thailand and Indonesia played out a 2-2 draw, with Bangladesh and Afghanistan also sharing the points in a tie that finished 1-1.

Singapore cannot do anything, no thanks to the Government we have.

They want a stake in everything and nationalise everything such that Singaporean ventures usually end up in failure and we have no strong SME or local companies that are well known around the globe.

Same goes with football, with the kind of neglect they gave football until recently.

The SG government surely makes Dr Mahathir and Proton look good.

a non country... beats a country..

we should just challenge them on PS5... at least we stand more of a chance since our electricity is more reliable.. can train more.. 

unless with the limited hours of electricity and a few smuggled PS5 they can still win, we should just stick to subbuteo

It is better that we give this world cup goal a miss.

Doesn't make sense if we have to spend billions to buy top players and throw in complimentary citizenship as a package.

I have never been too impressed by our table tennis approach to championship.

i think sg going about the sport all wrong.

all the poor countries sports rely on large numbers of people playing and endure hardship. not money. we cannot beat them.

instead we should go for the rich country sports. like that jamaica did bobsled thing? it was made into movie. but after that not no win. 

since we got money, and people dont want to endure hardship, just look for rich country sports. im not rich so i dont know any rich country sport.. 🤣

That's what I thought. Any stadium they had probably has been bombed to ruins. Maybe they are good because they train in the ruins.

They should just retire and stop cocking things up. 
I remember that the rationale for paying generals and colonels high, is because they have a short career span. Why is it that tax payers are further burdened by parachuting these people into various ministries and stat boards where they know nothing of?  
Umbrage Ah!!!!!🤬
