From the NFL to the S.League: The ones who did it
Who says you are not good enough for the S.League if you play in the National Football League (NFL)?
Shawal Anuar will have you know that is simply not true, given how his career has progressed so far.
Starting his S.League career near the age of 24, many will be forgiven for doubting Shawal’s ability to make the cut in Singapore’s top flight.
But the winger since went on to break into the senior team, before capping his meteoric rise in 2016 by earning a call-up to the national team.
Shawal has since went on trial with Japanese side second division team Matsumoto Yamaga and is now viewed as an integral member of Geylang, having netting nine times in the league this season, and finishing the campaign as top scorer for the Eagles.
