The audience at Jalan Besar stadium in Singapore witnessed exhilarating matches from the

concluded with Thailand U22 and Singapore U22 securing a scintillating victory over Indonesia U22 and the Philippines U22 by 2-1 and 3-0, respectively.

The matches were broadcasted live by 1 Play Sports on its Facebook page. Former

professional football player and Asian football expert Rhysh Roshan Rai joined Duncan Elias,

from 1 Play Sports, as the commentator for these matches. Following are their quotes:

Rhysh Roshan

It was exciting to watch these teams compete against each other with that kind of passion.

Singapore had a decent professional performance and I thought the way they played it overall

was very intelligent. Patience was the name of their game, patience and possession and they

waited for their opportunities to come about and they completely punished the Philippines in

the end. It was a lovely finish to the games tonight.

Duncan Elias

Thailand had a good performance in the match and they totally dominated Indonesia in the

first half. Their attacking movement constantly gave the Indonesian defenders problems, and

although Indonesia did pool a goal back, Thailand was strong enough to hold on and make

their way to the final on Sunday. I am really looking forward to the mouth-watering final coming up on Sunday, where Singapore takes on Thailand.

The recap and match highlights for both the matches including the experts’ commentaries will

Stay tuned for the finals on 9th June between Thailand U22 and Singapore U22 and thank you very much for joining us for the 2019 Merlion Cup in Singapore. Goodnight!
