Singapore fans emerged the ultimate winners as Manchester football rivals, Rio Ferdinand and Sergio Agüero went head-to-head at the highly-anticipated SG Game On! Challenge organised by SingTel and Samsung.
In a closely fought contest, Ferdinand narrowly edged-out Agüero in the unique two-day challenge.
The second day began with a surprise for special needs children at the APSN Tanglin School. The school is a beneficiary of the SingTel Touching Lives Fund, a corporate philanthropy programme which helps disadvantaged children and young people with special needs. The star-struck students received tips from the players who then coached them in a fun-filled 11-a-side match.
In a thrilling finale to the two-day challenge, fans teamed up with Ferdinand and Agüero in a series of football-themed challenges at an outdoor carnival at Chevron House. This included a football trivia quiz, video console football game and mini penalty shoot-out. The overall result of this activity was a draw.
