A football match between Singapore’s Young Lions and Beijing Guoan turned violent as a brawl began out on the pitch and caused the rest of the game to be cancelled. Temasek Review blames the Chinese side, though it seems every other publication has left it open.
Either way, Singapore has apologized:
“As players, we understand that we must maintain our discipline and professionalism at all times,” said Hariss Harun, captain of the club which fields the national side’s Under-23 team.
“We apologise to our fans, coaches and technical staff for the incident. We know that such behaviour was unacceptable and we are regretful of our actions.”
Officials said the game will be replayed some other time.
