Football: Boost for LionsXII

NOT EASY

The LionsXII will want to do much better next year, but it will not be easy as the Malaysian teams will be able to field four imports, while the Singaporean side have none.

National midfielder Shahdan Sulaiman's horrific leg break at the Suzuki Cup has also thrown a spanner in the works, while Fandi's team also look short of defensive cover.

Said Fandi: "Shahdan is a big loss, but every player in the team must make full use of whatever opportunity he gets to fight for the chance to play and show what he can do."
