SINGAPORE 4. NEWCASTLE UNITED 3. (FT)

Yes, you read that right.

This is on the occasion of the 23rd Canon Lion City which is currently being held in Singapore.

The Singapore U-15 team defeated the visiting Premier League side Newcastle United's U-15 team by the score of 4-3, with the hosts finding the back of the net three times in the last three minutes to seal a come from behind victory. This game was televised live, according to Twitter friend @jasonloudy, who is in Singapore. The Football Association of Singapore seems to be giving tremendous support to their youth teams.

Video clip of the last two Singapore goals here:


Now, people will say this is only a U-15 tournament. I will respectfully disagree.

For instance, I would like to see how our own U-15 team will stack up against this Singapore U-15 team. Looking at the seven minute video clip, there is no mistaking the passing and the lively movement of the team. And to play teams with the caliber of Newcastle and Juventus, now that will only improve their game, wouldn't it?
