Putri Nur Syaliza made a smashing debut in the Singapore women’s national team with a sweet opener in their 2-0 win over Maldives in a friendly that was played at the Sports Hub.
The 15-year-old Warriors FC midfielder pounced on a weak clearance from goalkeeper Abdul Razzaq Aishath to slot home the lead in the 51st minute.
“It was lucky, I thought it didn’t go in,” she chuckled after the game. “Then it went in and I was really shocked, it was my first goal ever (for Singapore), so I am really, really happy!”
Putri came off the bench in the 33rd minute when head coach K. Balagumaran decided to bring her in.
Singapore’s second goal was scored by Stephanie Dominguez three minutes to the end.
