SINGAPORE: Singapore is out of the Malaysia Cup, after the LionsXII lost their nail—biting semi—final tie on Thursday.
The team lost to ATM FA 4—5 on penalties in their semi—final second—leg tie in Kuala Lumpur.
The match had ended at 1—1 (2—2 on aggregate) after extra time.
It was all square after the first tie in Singapore ended 1—1. And the LionsXII were on their way to victory in the return tie at the Selayang Stadium when Agu Casmir scored in the 27th minute.
But in the dying seconds of normal time, Marlon James equalised for ATM to send the match into extra time.
The match was still deadlocked after 30 minutes of extra time, before it went into penalty shootout.
Singapore was last in the Malaysia Cup in 1994 when it went on to lift the trophy.
This year’s final will be on 20 October at the Shah Alam Stadium.
