It was a disappointing night for the Singapore U15 squad at the AFC U16 Championship Qualifiers as they lost 2-1 to Hong Kong.
Head coach Philippe Aw cut a frustrated figure as his team despite starting brightly and taking the lead fell behind to their dogged opponents.
In a match where it was imperative for the Cubs to get all three points in order to have a chance of qualifying - they failed miserably.
It truly is an uphill battle now for this team as they will next take on powerhouses North Korea - who thrashed Guam 16-0.
Philippe needs to rally his troops and most importantly fix the porous defence while making changes to his disjointed attack. If he fails, to do so - Singapore might suffer the same fate as Guam against North Korea.
