Naga given no Cup comfort by holders Home United

NagaCorp had a tumultuous introduction to the RHB Singapore Cup, falling 5-0 to holders Home United in their preliminary round clash on Friday at the Jalan Besar Stadium.

‘The Protectors’, as they are also known by their Singaporean home supporters, began their title defence in impressive fashion, springing to a 3-0 lead by half time through goals from Indra Sahdan, Lee Kwan Woo and Fazrul Nawaz.

Substitutes Ahmad Fahmie and Fazli Ayob then confirmed the rout with late strikes in the second session. 2013 Hun Sen Cup winners NagaCorp returned to Cambodia on Saturday and will be back in action in the Metfone C-League on Wednesday along with reigning league champions Svay Rieng, who were also humbled in Singapore last week.
