Ho Wai Loon relieved to end 17-month wait for first Singapore appearance
The 25-year-old was called up to the senior squad for the first time in the friendly against Afghanistan on March 23 last year by V Sundram Moorthy. Despite making the squad on 13 occasions under the former coach, Ho never got his chance on the pitch.
With Fandi Ahmad ushering in a new era as the head honcho in place of Sundram, Ho was slated to start the Singapore icon’s first game in charge against Mauritius, but suffered a knee injury in training which put him out of contention.
All the negative thoughts were finally vanquished on Tuesday night when the fourth official held up the substitution board in the 62nd minute.
