Yemen vs Singapore: Big surprise from The Lions?

Yemen vs Singapore: Big surprise from The Lions?

Lifting out of the mire, Singapore is recently showing some positive signals. Before a team containing such many problems like Yemen, The Lions may bring a surprise.

Theoretically, the match will be held in Yemen, but it is moved to Bahrain because of security concerns from the Yemeni Civil War. It means that Yemen team is not able to take advantage of playing at the home ground while the level difference between them and Singapore is not too high.

In Group D of 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualification, Yemen is standing in the third position, but they have only 1 point more than Singapore. Consequently, two teams can change the place to each other if Singapore is the victorious team in this match.

With Singaporean players, their supporters can believe in a good result. Singapore lost 2 latest matches, but they are games in which they played against much stronger teams namely Saudi Arabia and Uzbekistan.

So, against an average squad like Yemen, Singapore can hope to gain at least 1 point to compete for second place. But should they want to do that, they will need to improve the form of strikers like Ikhsan Fandi and Faris bin Ramli.

Fighting against Yemen will not be an easy task, but with a team containing many talents like Singapore, nothing is impossible. In September they defeated Palestine, and that miracle can be made again in U.A.E.
