Chan Chun Sing: Singapore could claim soccer gold in SEA games 2015

The Southeast Asia (SEA) Games hosted by Singapore in 2015 may be still three years away, but Acting Minister for Community Development, Youth and Sports Chan Chun Sing is already ‘counting his chicks before they are hatched.’
Speaking in an interview with the media, the Acting Minister said he is ‘quietly confident’ that Singapore could claim the soccer gold in 2015.
Singapore’s best result in the SEA Games football tournament are the three silvers which the Lions won in 1983, 1985 and 1989.
Former FAS Chairman Mah Bow Tan infamously declared that Singapore could qualify for the World Cup in 2010 back then in the 2000s.
