This is Singapore's second loss of the campaign, and the Lions will need a win against Syria next Tuesday in order to keep alive their hopes of qualifying automatically for the next round of World Cup qualification and the 2019 Asian Cup.

Singapore head coach Bernd Stange said his team is eager to prove that the 0-0 draw they held Japan to in June was no fluke as the two teams meet again at the National Stadium on Thursday.

The tactician is looking to mastermind another upset over the Samurai Blue, and he believes the Lions are in better shape this time around than when they earned maximum points from two home matches last month against Afghanistan and Cambodia.

When Singapore held much-heralded Japan to a 0-0 draw in June, a crowd of more than 57,000 fans at the Saitama Stadium were shocked into silence. However, a small group of people were cheering wildly at the final whistle – a group made up mostly of Singaporeans working or studying in Japan, or the spouses of Singaporeans.

One fan, however, had flown six and a half hours and over 5,000km from Singapore to cheer his nation on: lecturer and businessman Tan Hwee Heng.
