Unlucky Singapore could have made it a draw if they scored five goals.

Singapore nearly beat Juventus on Aug. 16, 2014, at the new National Stadium, where the first-ever football match was being played there.

The match ended 0-5, with the Italian side getting very lucky by slipping five goals past Singapore, all of which could have been blocked if the Italians did not rely on their slick passing, superior stamina, strong character, hunger to win and having Lady Luck on their side.

The Singapore team had only needed just six more goals to end the match 6-5 and claim victory, but were unlucky as they were denied the chance to score from start to finish.

Minster of Sports, Baey Xia Suay, said: “Singapore was very close to winning even though Juventus kept scoring. The goals kept coming and the Italian side kept pressing ahead, attacked and defended well, dominated the match, but other than that, Singapore was superior on the other aspects.”

“However, Singapore could have done better if the field was tilted in their favour. The new stadium very high tech one, right? Can technology one, right?

“Also, it is the referee’s fault. He played a fair game when he should have been biased towards Singapore since we are on home ground.”
