As we inch closer to the start of the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018, all eyes are on the ten teams getting ready to battle it out to be called the best in Southeast Asia.
All ten teams look decently prepared heading into the tournament, so don’t be surprised if there end up being some nail-biting finishes in this one.
One team will be looking to bring back some lost glory in this year’s competition, and have every chance of pulling it off too. Singapore head into this tournament knowing that they haven’t won the AFF Suzuki Cup since 2012, and have something to prove.
Punching above their weight has never been a problem for Singapore, and The Lions will be looking to roar their way past the group stage this time around. They encounter teams such as Thailand, Philippines and Indonesia in Group B, and the action promises to be exciting.
