Singapore will restart their 2022 World Cup Qualifying campaign today when they take on Yemen later.

The first encounter between the two sides ended up in a 2-2 draw with Faris Ramli and Ikhsan Fandi scoring for the Lions - despite Singapore dominating for most of the game.

Singapore will have their work cut out for them if they are to secure all three points against this 141st ranked side.
