FOOTBALL: Problem may lie in the selection process


SINGAPORE is reportedly facing a fast-aging population due to many of the country's young shunning marriage or opting to marry late. This, apparently, has led to a rise in gay culture in the city-state.

Latest reports also indicate that they are turning into an emotionless breed. A Gallup poll survey ranked Singapore as the most emotionless society in the world.

Yet, Malaysia had to go and lose to the Singapore football team not by one but three goals in the Group B opening match of the AFF Suzuki Cup at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil on Sunday. Malaysian football has hit rock bottom.

It is extremely hard to fathom that we were once feared by the likes of South Korea and Japan.

Perhaps the problem is in the selection of players. We have an abundance of talent from a very fertile pool waiting to be tapped.
