Bermuda came back in the second quarter and were able to apply some pressure to the Singaporeans, but the eight goal deficit proved too tricky to budge.

Bermuda’s coach Gina Benjamin said: “I’m very pleased with the effort that the girls gave me today.” Benjamin couldn’t pick a standout “All of them shone for me today.”

Captain Jaylynn Hines said the team has thoroughly enjoyed the experience in Glasgow, describing it as “fantastic” adding “We’ve never really experienced playing teams like this.”
