SINGAPORE: The Lions returned from Bangkok to a hero’s welcome at Changi Airport after lifting the AFF Suzuki Cup for a historic fourth time.

Singapore beat Thailand 3—2 on aggregate on Saturday evening.

Some 600 fans and officials gathered at Changi Airport’s Terminal 3 to greet the Lions.

Among them was Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong.

The national footballers will go on a victory parade through the city centre.

The open—top bus will make a stop along Orchard Road just outside Ngee Ann City, for fans to get up close with the Lions.

The celebration will culminate at the Jalan Besar stadium at about 3pm, where Captain Shahril Ishak will address fans and thank them for their support.
