Just weeks removed from falling short of advancing into the knockout stages of the 2015 AFC Cup, Global FC is back on international duty as they defeat Hougang United FC, 2-1, at the Hougang Stadium in Singapore to advance into the RHB Singapore Cup Quarterfinals.

Hougang’s Francisco “Chupe” Salvador gave the home team the early advantage after knocking in a 39th minute conversion.

The visiting Global was not down for long however, as just six minutes into the second half, Norio Suzuki found the equalizer for the People’s Club, ultimately forcing extra time.

In the 103rd minute, Jason de Jong, who now uses his Filipina mother’s maiden name Dantes put the UFL champions ahead, blasting one into the net following a broken play.

After extra time, Global leaves Hougang with a 2-1 victory, and a ticket into the Singapore Cup Quarterfinals.

Up next for Global FC is a matchup against 2009 Singapore Cup winners Geylang International FC. Match details to be confirmed.
