Singapore win fourth ASEAN title

Suzuki Cup 
Final, Second leg
Thailand 1-0 Singapore

Singapore has won their 4th ASEAN title as they defeated Thailand 3-2 overall.

The first leg win by Singapore at Jalan Besar proved too much for the Thais to overcome even with home advantage.
Especially as Singapore decided to sit back and let the Thais asked the questions for it is them who need not only the win but also by a two-goal margin.

For despite the Thais creating a number of chances they never make Singapore number custodian Izwan Mahbud make a save considered tough until the final 5minutes.

That was why despite getting the opening goal at the stroke of half-time, the Thais were unable to get another goal to give them the trophy.

With that, Singapore won their fourth title in the last 8 attempts and it is Raddy 3rd titles making him the most successful coach in ASEAN championship.

Izwan Mahbud (GK), Daniel Bennett, Baihakki Khaizan, Safuwan Baharudin, Shaiful Esah, Mustafic Fahrudin, Isa Halim, Shahril Ishak (C), Aleksandar Duric, Shahdan Sulaiman (Farzul Nawaz), Khairul Amri (Qiu Li)
