Irfan scores again in win over Timor Leste

Irfan Fandi training with the Singapore U-23 at Jalan Besar Stadium on 25 May 2015.

The Singapore Under-23s recorded their second win in four days when they beat Timor Leste U-23 2-0 in a closed-door friendly at the Jalan Besar Stadium last night.

The Young Lions opened the scoring through a Shahfiq Ghani free-kick in the 18th minute before striker Irfan Fandi sealed the win with a bullet header six minutes from time.

Irfan was also on the scoresheet when Aide Iskandar's charges beat Laos Under-23 5-1 last Saturday.

The 17-year-old has now scored three goals in four appearances, with his first coming in the 2-1 defeat by Japanese fourth division side Azul Claro Numazu in the first friendly match of their Japan tour earlier this month.

"It was a good result for us, and the boys put in a good performance," said Young Lions assistant coach S. Subramani.
