Match Report: ANFC vs HGFC

Albirex recovered from last week’s defeat to Tanjong Pagar in style and it all began with Kunimoto nodding home Tezuka’s inswinging corner after just 66 seconds.

The centre-back repeated the trick late into the second half to put the White Swans two up, before Takahashi inadvertently turned home Shahfiq Ghani’s free kick to give Hougang a lifeline. But Keiji Shigetomo’s men would go on to seal the victory, with Hanada emphatically volleying home Ryosuke Nagasawa’s cross before turning provider for Tezuka to apply the finishing touch.
