Singapore and Afghanistan will meet one another for a friendly game on Saturday.

Both nations will have three World Cup 2022 qualifiers in June and will use the clash as a preparation for the official upcoming fixtures.
Last game between the teams: 23.03.2017 International Friendly: Afghanistan – Singapore 2:1; Sarif Muchammad 5’, Mustafa Azadzoy 47’
Last game on Singapore soil: 08.10.2015 World Cup Qualification: Singapore – Afghanistan 1:0;Khairul Amri 72’
Worth mentioning: The national selections of Singapore and Afghanistan have met on a total of three times, with all three games held after 2015. Singapore won only the first ever encounter in 2015 with a slender 1:0 at home. Afghanistan triumphed in the next two matches, winning both with the same 2:1 score. All three H2H clashes have ended in victories for the host nations. Understandably, two featured over 2,5 goals, and both of the same also witnessed goals at both ends.
Singapore’s indifferent start to their World Cup qualifying campaign in 2019 will frustrate Tatsuma Yoshida in his first international management role. They come up against an improving Afghanistan side that remain poor. Despite sitting third in their own World Cup qualification group, they have conceded 11 goals in five games and sit as high as third due to the poor quality of both India and Bangladesh. Despite this only being a friendly preparing for the June qualifiers, Singapore will expect to win this one.
Worth mentioning: Singapore’s last match dates over a year ago to November 2019 when winning 1:2 away from home against Yemen. Before that triumph they went without a win in four consecutive meetings and were on a run of three straight defeats. Just five of the team last twenty encounters ended in victories for the visiting nations, as the hosts recorded eleven wins. Three of Singapore last five clashes resulted in over 2,5 goals, as two saw both involved teams to score.
Afghanistan prevailed 2:3 against Indonesia on Tuesday. That was the nation’s first match since November 2019, when falling to a slender 0:1 defeat at the hands of Qatar. Afghanistan have won just two of their last ten meetings, while allowing six defeats for the period and managed to score more than a goal only in the most recent of those games. Two of Afghanistan last five outings produced over 2,5 goals and also two witnessed goals at both ends.
