Lions, remember this picture when you play tonight


THE most any athlete can do is to give of his best as there is no guarantee of success in sports ("Lions fans brave rain as Cup final fever heats up"; Monday).

I hope our Singapore players can see the photograph of fans queueing for hours under a heavy downpour to get tickets for the home leg of the Asean Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup finals, and recognise the fans' dedication and support.

Our footballers can be assured of a packed stadium at Jalan Besar cheering them on tonight, and this should spur them to give nothing short of their best for the fans and Singapore.
