Champions open their season with win

It was not easy on the eye but the champions was more than delighted with their win against Geylang United at the Bedok Stadium.

Quite frankly, the Eagles were no threat to the Champions throughout the game and once the champions took the lead it was a matter of whether they will go on to score another, not if the Eagles will come back into the game.

That was why the first goal was crucial and the champions got it as Maxime Belouet floated a freekick pass Yazid Yasin 5 minutes before half-time.

Then before the half-time whistle, Selim Kaabi scored the Queentown side second goal and that was it.

The champions came out in the second period happy with their efforts and kept themselves playing at their own pace and no wonder for the Eagles could just not fashion anything to threaten them.

The Eagles may believed they have a good enough forward line with Masrezwan Masturi, Rizawan Abdullah and Hafiz Rahim all upfront but on this showing, it is clear they need real firepower and urgently as they are not likely to hurt anybody with that feeble attack.
