Singapore vs Afghanistan International Friendly LIVE Football Score 29/5/2021
NAME: Singapore – Afghanistan
DATE: 29 May 2021
TIME: 18:45 UTC
LEAGUE: International Friendly Match 2021
Afghanistan prevailed 2:3 against Indonesia on Tuesday. That was the nation’s first match since November 2019, when falling to a slender 0:1 defeat at the hands of Qatar. Afghanistan have won just two of their last ten meetings, while allowing six defeats for the period and managed to score more than a goal only in the most recent of those games. Singapore and Afghanistan will meet one another for a friendly game on Saturday. Singapore have not been on the football field in 18 months, with their opponents playing just one match for that period. Both nations will have three World Cup 2022 qualifiers in June and will use the clash as a preparation for the official upcoming fixtures.
Singapore’s indifferent start to their World Cup qualifying campaign in 2019 will frustrate Tatsuma Yoshida in his first international management role. They come up against an improving Afghanistan side that remain poor. Despite sitting third in their own World Cup qualification group, they have conceded 11 goals in five games and sit as high as third due to the poor quality of both India and Bangladesh. Despite this only being a friendly preparing for the June qualifiers, Singapore will expect to win this one.
Singapore’s last match dates over a year ago to November 2019 when winning 1:2 away from home against Yemen. Before that triumph they went without a win in four consecutive meetings and were on a run of three straight defeats. Just five of the team last twenty encounters ended in victories for the visiting nations, as the hosts recorded eleven wins. Three of Singapore last five clashes resulted in over 2,5 goals, as two saw both involved teams to score.
