SINGAPORE: Fandi Ahmad, Singapore's side, Sven-Goran Eriksson, did not make a move to the Pennsylvania Stadium in Bacolod City, but late Patrick Reichelt was enough to allow Azkals to score all three points. Tuesday (November 13th) – 1-0.
The hard thing that saw little and far from the edge of the home, FIFA ranked 49 in the lions, dominated the beginning of the reign, but failed to create any sense.
In the first playful game, on the side of Fandi, they fell down for 15 minutes. Faris Ramli had a good opportunity to give his team the lead but the home team's goalkeeper put the ball into the net.
The next piece of the game showed that Lions wins freekick in a promising position just outside the penalty box, but Ikhsan's low drive failed the trouble of the Philippine Guardian Neil Etheridge.
The half-time break seemed to trigger the hosts when they returned with their new strength. Hassan Sunny had to be involved with Lyons when he retired from Manny Ott's 25-meter stinger.
At the 65th minute, the Singapore goalkeeper repeatedly came to the rescue of Lyon when he stepped out of the fierce James Younghael shot that was intended for the net back.
The crowd groaned its disapproval when Patrick Reichelt missed a free kick that would have given Hassan Sunny the lead after 78 minutes.
The Libians had the best chance of lifting the equalizer within minutes of the corner, but sensational clearance from Daisuke Sato's substitute denied captain Harris Harun of Singapore.
The victory of the Philippines means that Group B is widely open, with three points in Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia and Singapore.
On November 21, Singapore will play in Timor-Leste and on November 25th, defense champions in Thailand will take part.
