Coach was happy despite the Lions losing their second AFC Asian Cup qualifier.
Bernd Stange feels Singapore were “unlucky” in their 2-0 defeat to Oman on Wednesday night, The New Paper report.
After being thrashed by Jordan in their opening AFC Asian Cup qualifier the Lions need to pick up a positive result at the Jalan Besar Stadium, but were put to the sword by the visitors and are now marooned at the bottom of Group A.
Despite the loss Stange, taking charge of his first competitive match as head coach, remained upbeat during his post-match press conference, intimating that it showed his side have made good progress on the field and that it will take half-a-year to mould the team in his own image.
“You will see a positive coach even though we lost today,” he said. “Today, we have a clear picture of how our team are going to play in the future. We tried to dominate the game. It was not as bad as the result suggests. It was not a disaster.
“We were unlucky, we dominated possession but could not find a way to launch dangerous attacks.”
Singapore’s next qualifying fixture is in October when they host Syria.
