| SINGAPORE (25 August 2010) – The Lions fell to their second defeat in their Tour of Serbia – this time falling to a late, lone strike from Serbian First Division side FK Vojvodina Novi-Sad.
The Singapore national team had earlier fell to similar 1-0 loss to the Serbian XI in their first friendly match in Belgrade.
A 71st minute goal by Zeljko Damir after a defensive lapse separated the two sides even though Singapore created several clear chances throughout the match.
Khairul Amri and Agu Casmir sat out this second friendly 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 friendly match will be against another First Division side, FK Jagodina before returning home the day after.
Singapore are using the tour as part of their preparations for the Asian Games in November as well as the AFF Suzuki Cup 2010 in December.
