| SINGAPORE (29 July 2010) – Tampines Rovers FC regained their position at the top of the S-League with a convincing 2-0 win over Gombak United last night at the Jalan Besar Stadium.
A goal in each half from Imran Sahib in the 37th minute and then Benoit Croissant in the 70th minute were enough for them to leapfrog over Etoile FC.
In the meantime, the Singapore Selection side fell to a close 1-0 loss to Burnley FC to complete their tour of Singapore.
A Chris Eagles free-kick early in the second half was enough for Burnley to complete their sojourn with three wins out of three.
“I think we gave a good game to the people who came to see this game, they should be really happy with what they saw and it was a good game from both teams,” said Singapore chief coach Radojko Avramovic.
“Only I’m livid definitely, and think to ask the Federation to not put any more Singapore referees (for future matches).”
“It’s not the first time this has happened and that goal came from a free kick that don’t exist. That’s what it is.
“I’m very happy with the boys in this game, they’ve done more than I was expecting,” said the Serbian.
“They’ve done really well. It’s a shame they didn’t score at least one goal, the opportunity was there. But that’s football and that’s what it is.”
Avromovic also let on his plans for the team in the run-up to the Asian Games in November.
“There are a few players that we tried against Myanmar. There’s another 4 or 5 more players that we are looking to give chance to, to see how they are.”
“There’s one tournament in Vietnam and one more hopefully in Thailand and we can talk about 3 to 6 games and hope to be ready for Asian Games.”
