AFF Suzuki Cup: Victorious Lions feted on their return home


Following their Asean Football Federation Championship success, the victorious Lions returned home to a rapturous reception on Sunday afternoon.

More than 800 fans greeted the Singapore team at Changi Airport. The players, officials and family members then proceeded to an open-top bus which took them through busy Orchard Road.

To cap off the celebrations, around 2,000 screaming supporters welcomed the Lions at their den at the Jalan Besar Stadium, where they were feted to a victory party.

The Lions beat Thailand 3-2 on aggregate for their record fourth Asean crown on Saturday.
