Singapore to play two games at the National Stadium next month

The Lions will play two games at the National Stadium next month, a friendly against Lebanon on November 9 and an Asian Cup qualifier against Bahrain five days later.

"We have always said that we want to make the National Stadium the home of our Lions, so we are happy to be playing these two matches at the National Stadium," said Football Association of Singapore president Lim Kia Tong in a press release.

The team's first two Asian Cup qualifier games were played at Jalan Besar Stadium

"The national team's performances have been improving, althought results might not have gone their way. They need the fans' strong, consistent and vociferous support, because that will determine the outcome of the battle."

The team's first two Asian Cup qualifier home games were played at Jalan Besar Stadium, a 2-1 loss to Taiwan in June and a 1-1 draw with Turkmenistan last month.

V. Sundramoorthy's men will have to record big wins in both their remaining matches - the November 14 crunch tie with Bahrain and an away fixture against Taiwan - coupled with other results going their way to stand any chance of qualifying.

The Lions are currently bottom of their group on two points.

Tickets for both matches will go on sale from 9am on October 23.
