Selangor suffered its second embarrassing loss in a matter of two days when Singapore went on a goal feast at the Shah Alam Stadium to clinch the Sultan Selangor Cup with a 6-0 victory.Singapore, fielding a number of foreigners, were a class above Selangor, who were still smarting from a 0-3 defeat to Kelantan in a Malaysia Cup quarterfinal match Friday.

The Singaporeans showed their prowess in the very first minute of the match when skipper Aleksandar Duric opened accounts with a splendid header before another imported player Mendy Frederic struck a brace in the 10th and 43rd minutes to make it 3-0 by half time.Yet another nationalized Singaporean import Ivan Jerkovic doused any hopes of a Selangor fight back when he added the fourth a minute after the break and Juma'at made it 5-0 in the 76th minute.

Duric capped a perfect night for the Singaporeans by inflicting the biggest defeat to Selangor in the series, when he made it 6-0 just minutes before the final whistle to ensure the cup remained in their possession for another year after having won it last year.

The only consolation for the fans was the 1-0 win by the Selangor Veteran side which beat Singapore veterans prior to the main match.

Former international Shahrin Majid showed that he still had the killer instinct when he struck the winner in the 38th minute.Last year, Selangor lost the veteran match 1-4.

Sultan Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah gave away the prizes to winners while the fans were entertained by Jamal Abdillah, David Arumugam and Francesca Peter.
