Singapore U-16 Women's National Team has finally broken their long-awaited victory drought with last night's incredible performance. It's been almost two decades since they last tasted success in this tournament, which was still called the AFC U-17 Women’s Championship back in 2005. With this epic 7-0 triumph over Turkmenistan, the U-17 Lionesses have proven that they are a force to be reckoned with. And there's more good news - Singapore is now at the top of Group D, with one goal difference separating them from Bangladesh. With just one more game left to play, a draw is all they need to secure their place in Round 2 of the qualifiers, which promises to be yet another thrilling affair later this year!
With the U-16 Lionesses' first home win sure to go down in the annals of Singapore's Football history, the stage is now set for the upcoming sold-out match between Singapore and Bangladesh at Jalan Besar Stadium this Sunday, 30 April 2023.
If last night's crowd-pleasing match is anything to go by, fans are in for a spectacular.
