Singapore lose 5-0 to Uzbekistan in World Cup qualifier
RIYADH: Singapore fell to another World Cup qualifying defeat on Monday (Jun 7) after a 5-0 loss to Uzbekistan in the Saudi Arabian capital, Riyadh.
Singapore’s joint qualification campaign for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and the 2023 Asian Cup in China, delayed due to the COVD-19 pandemic, had resumed last week with the Lions’ 4-0 defeat to Palestine.
The latest result leaves them out of the running for the next World Cup.
Monday’s penultimate Group D match at the King Fahd International Stadium saw Uzbekistan getting a comfortable three-goal lead at half time, before adding two more goals in the second half.
Singapore head coach Tatsuma Yoshida made five changes to the starting eleven after their previous game against Palestine, but that was not enough to overcome the Uzbeks, who stand 73 rungs higher than Singapore (159) in the FIFA rankings.
Jaloliddin Masharipov began the rout early for Uzbekistan, netting in the 6th minute, before adding another a goal in the 34th minute.
