Safuwan, Irfan Fandi impress Sundram before Asian Cup qualifier

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and Stanley Bernard looks ahead to Singapore's Asian Cup qualifier against Bahrain in Group E.

Head coach V. Sundramoorthy has a selection dilemma about whether to persist with Singapore's latest central defensive partnership of ex-Melbourne City utility Safuwan Baharudin and teenager Irfan Fandi or opt for a more experienced pair for Tuesday's 2019 AFC Asian Cup qualifier against Bahrain.

The Lions' boss will reflect on Thursday night's 2-1 friendly defeat to Afghanistan in Doha before finalising his starting side for the third-round opener in Riffa.

Shawal Anuar scored his first international goal but it was not enough to prevent Singapore from falling to a 2-1 friendly defeat to Afghanistan in Doha on Thursday night.

After Sharif Mukhammad had handed Afghanistan a fifth-minute lead at the Al Sailiya Sports Complex, Shawal got the Lions back in the contest with a clinical strike immediately after the restart.

Dez Corkhill and John Wilkinson preview Singapore's upcoming matches against Afghanistan and Bahrain.

The two sides will face off in a friendly before the Lions travel to Riffa to play Bahrain in their opening third-round qualifier for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

The lanky Irfan has been playing mostly as a centre-back for S.League outfit Home United in recent months.

Is Malaysia coach Ong Kim Swee dead man walking with TMJ new president?

Jason Dasey chats with Malaysia's Ong Kim Swee about his side's draw against the Philippines and his future as head coach.
Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts ask if Malaysia were right to request a neutral venue for their fixture with North Korea.

Today, they're the national coaches of Singapore and Malaysia, but two decades ago, V. Sundramoorthy and Datuk Ong Kim Swee were fierce rivals on the field. Sundramoorthy earned the nickname "The Dazzler" for his flashy dribbling, while defensive-minded Ong did his best to cut him down in his tracks.

"Sundram was very skilful, very nippy and very tricky," Ong told ESPN FC of his days suiting up for Sarawak and Sabah against Sundram's Singapore and Kelantan in the mid-1990s. "It wasn't easy to play...
