Stags go down in extra-time

Tampines Rovers dream in Asia is over but the Stags can hang their head high.

With the tie being in the Middle-East, Iraqi side Arbil SC was widely expected to beat the Stags by a big margin but the Stags held out against them in regulation time.

Unfortunately, the Stags could not repeat it in extra-time with Arbil Sc finally breaching the Stags backline.
Nevertheless, it was a terrific effort and hopefully the Stags can repeat it next year in Asia; if given the chance.
