About the Book 

From Penang in the north of Malaysia down to the city-state of Singapore in the south, seasoned sports correspondent John Duerden tackles one of Asia's big football rivalries between these two neighbours on either side of the Causeway. He charts its incident-packed history, zooms in on the big names adn clases of the past century, and weighs in on hot-button issues from naturalised players to football federation elections.

With his eye on the ball, Duerden takes a close look at what makes this rivalry tick. From accounts of fierce encounters between the two national teams and clubs to tales from the times when they both sent teams to compete in each other's leagues, Lions and Tigers is a lively, entertaining and facinating look at a football rivalry that deserves to be more widely known around the world.
