REVEAL: 6 Singaporean footballers involved in a gambling scandal in SEA Games 30th

There is information about the case that Singapore U22 players involved in a gambling scandal, playing all night after losing to Thailand 22 in SEA Games 30th.

At the SEA Games 30th in the Philippines, Singapore U22 competed disappointingly and did not get favorable results. Overall, Fandi Ahmad's team only earned 4 points after 5 matches, thereby ranking 4th in group B after Thailand U22, Indonesia U22 and Vietnam U22.

The elimination from the group stage of SEA Games 30th once again shows the decline of Singaporean football. The training of young people is an issue that makes this country far behind its regional rivals. However, that is not the only worry of head coach Fandi Ahmad.

Sources from The Straits Times reported that up to six Singapore U22 players are facing disciplinary punishment from the National Olympic Council of Singapore (SNOC). The reason is that these people joined late on Sunday night (December 1st), following the 0-3 defeat to Thailand U22 in the SEA Games 30th's group stage.

"Six Singaporean U22 players violated the curfew when attending the Southeast Asian Games, violating the team rules. They received a severe warning and will face a disciplinary hearing after returning from the SEA Games", a SNOC representative said.

On December 6th, the Singapore Football Federation (FAS) confirmed a group of players involved in the night outing scandal including Tajeli Salamat, Joshua Pereira, Zulqarnaen Suzliman, Zharfan Rohaizad, Kenji Rusydi and Lionel Tan. They came to the casino to relieve melancholy after a 0-3 defeat to Thailand and only returned to the Century Park Hotel in Manila at dawn.

In 2014, trouble also occurred with the Singaporean sports team when fishermen Joseph Schooling, Teo Zhen Ren and Roanne Ho were warned by SNOC for leaving the athlete's village while attending the Asian Games in Incheon (South Korea).
