Can Singapore bounce back against PNG?
The team from Papua New Guinea has lit up Group A with few dominating performances. Apart from a nail biter against Scotland they have been unstoppable. Their opponent Bermuda after showing great promise in the first two games have found ways to struggle. The loss to the Netherlands might not have been a surprise but the way they lost against them and followed in the same fashion against Kenya is certainly a worrying sign for them. Now they face on red hot PNG who are coming into the match on the back of a victory against the dominant Netherlands.
Both sides are likely to stick with the same playing XI of their previous match.
