Shaiful Eash out of SEA Games Bronze medal game

Singapore international and SAFFC defender Shaiful Eash is out of the SEA Games Bronze medal game as a result of the injury he suffered in the semi-final game against Vietnam U23

But, more worrying for Singapore is that the Asian Cup qualifier against Iran is early next month and from the S-league twitter, it appeared Shaiful Eash injury is quite serious and he may be a doubt for that game in Singapore at the National Stadium.

It will then be a terrible loss as the 23-year-old is the Lions set-piece specialist and his importance was highlighted in the last Asian Cup qualifier when it was his corner that found the head of Duric to secure the Lions first victory against Thailand in Bangkok in 34 years.

Exactly... he was the spiritual figure in the Cubs set-up and a crucial part in the national team's "set-up"

No worry, we will get a result against Iran & then Jordan & qualify through the qualifying grp for the first ever to the Asian Cup Finals.
