Lion City hotshot Duric makes a difference for local kids

Some 100 Cambodian children from local charity organisation Indochina Starfish Foundation were invited to join a training course on Saturday led by former Singapore star striker Aleksandar Duric at KB All Sports Club.

The event, titled “RHB Little Kicks, Big Difference” was supported by Malaysia’s fourth-largest financial services group, RHB Capital.

Duric, 44, who scored 27 of his 380 career goals for Singapore from 54 international caps, shared his personal experience with the children and Metfone C-League club Naga Corp’s team members in the morning before helping Multi Media FC seal a 7-1 victory over RHB in a friendly futsal game that raised $1,000 in charity donations to ISF.
