The LionsXII have been crowned champions of the 2013 Malaysian Super League (MSL), following a 4-0 victory over Felda United on Tuesday night at the Jalan Besar Stadium.

The win landed Singapore a first Malaysian league title since 1994, with one game to spare.

After having a goal disallowed in a goal-less first half, the LionsXII got a dream start to the second half, with three goals finding the net within 15 minutes.

Felda's Azrul Ahmad first headed Shahril Ishak's free-kick into his own net in the 47th minute, before the LionsXII captain tapped in from close range to convert one of his own in the 58th minute.
