Satoshi Hida scored first for Albirex Niigata (S) before Syed Thaha equalised.
But one cannot it was a reflection of the game as the truth was, the Eagles were disjointed for much of the game and completely outplayed by the White Swans midfield.
It show the disappointing performance of the two new Eagles recruits who were brought in to strengthen the Eagles for the S-league and Asia.
If Romanian playmaker, Vasile Ghindaru, cannot set up play then their attack led by their Slovakian Div 2 top scorer, Peter Tomko, can only be described as equally disappointing.
He had no bite, if any, and has memories of last season Eagles flop Ricky Hariss who has little notable strength of his playing abilities.
It is still early days yet and both Vasile Ghindaru and Peter Tomko can still succeed but the clock is ticking away.
