SINGAPORE: The LionsXII on Friday ended their pre-season tour of Indonesia on a high, after beating Premier Division team PSS Sleman 1-0.
New signing Khairul Amri scored the only goal of the game at the stroke of half-time.
It was the Lions' second straight win of the three-game tour, following a 2-1 victory over PPSM Magelang earlier this week.
Head Coach Fandi Ahmad said: "It has been a good tour -- with three good matches that provided our players, especially the young ones, a feel of the intensity of matches in front of big and vocal crowds.”
"The nine-day trip also strengthened the bonding among the players and officials, and we are looking forward to our first match in the MSL next Friday," he added.
Vice-captain Safuwan Baharuddin echoed the sentiment: “We have several new players this season, and the training tour has helped them settle in well. While a few players were not able to play in the matches, it is good that they are here with the team, not only to work on their fitness, but also to gel and bond as a cohesive unit."
The LionsXII will kick off the 2014 Malaysian Super League season away to Pahang on January 17.
