18 August, 2014   Gary Yeo


Juventus completed their Asia-Australia pre-season tour with an entertaining 5-0 victory over Singapore Selection on Saturday - the first football match to be staged at the new National Stadium at the iconic Singapore SportsHub.


This football match also served as the perfect platform for the iconic Kallang Roar and Kallang Wave to make a spectacular comeback!

Let us relive the night's memories through the photos captured by Sport Singapore's wonderful photographers.
