SINGAPORE – The excitement of a record crowd at the National Stadium quickly turned to disappointment as South Korea delivered a masterclass in football, defeating Singapore 7-0 in a FIFA World Cup qualifier on 6 June.

Ahead of the match, Singapore’s head coach Tsutomu Ogura had expressed confidence, citing his team’s resilience in previous outings, including a commendable 2-2 draw against China.

However, the class difference was evident as South Korea, ranked 132 places above Singapore in the FIFA world rankings, showcased their superiority from the onset.

The match saw South Korea’s stars shine brightly, with Son Heung-min and Lee Kang-in leading the onslaught.

Son demonstrated why he is regarded as one of the top footballers worldwide, contributing two goals to the tally.

Lee, the Paris Saint-Germain talent, opened the scoring with a stunning right-footed strike in the ninth minute, setting the tone for what was to become a long night for the Lions.

Singapore struggled defensively, and their brief moments of hope dwindled as South Korea capitalized on every opportunity.

The visitors effectively sealed the game in the second half, adding five more goals, with contributions from substitutes Hwang Hee-chan and Bae Jun-ho.

This victory secured South Korea’s top spot in Group C, advancing them to the final round of World Cup qualification.

Meanwhile, Singapore is set to finish last in the group, with one remaining match against Thailand on 11 June in Bangkok.

Don’t expect them to beat the South Koreans but not even one goal? So are they getting the training and diet requirements needed. Do the players have to hold jobs or are they paid monthly by the FAS?

So sad for our SG team…unfair of FAS to pit them against a professional skorean team.
Must have been totally embarrassing for our boys…not entirely their fault.
I feel its time our stingy gov pay them well so that they dont need to have
a day job ..just play and train soccer 24/7 …professionally… or else sampeh tua lah!

Well SG is very good at importing talents. No?!? The elites only need to skycam their talents everywhere and bring them in to score points. No?!? The Lee and cronies style.

What is happening to once top ASEAN country Singapore in the 80s?

Who promised Singapore Worid Cup entry in the 90s and still happily collecting his pensions in Marine Parade while our football standard have gone down the drain worse ranking in ASEAN now?

It would not be realistic to expect a better outcome.
