PENANG -- This popular tourist destination may be famous around the world for the quality of its street eats, but the food available outside the old city stadium is still mostly standard football fare: burgers and kebabs. Those wanting Laksa, Char Kway Teow or a Nyonya curry may be disappointed, but the fans were just here for the football.

Part of Singapore's dream team of 1994, who won the Malaysian league and cup double, Jang Jung was the defensive rock in a side loaded with attacking talent.

After playing for one of K-League's top clubs Lucky-Goldstar Hwangso -- now known as FC Seoul -- Jang became familiar to...

Jedinak, playing his 60th international, placed his spot kick into the top right hand corner past goalkeeper Pavel Matiash in his...
