Singapore Armed Forces draws 1-1 with Shanghai

Argentine striker Hernan Barcos scored in injury time Tuesday to salvage a 1-1 draw for Shanghai Shenhua against Singapore Armed Forces in the Asian Champions League.
Armed Forces earned its first point of the competition after taking the lead in the 29th minute with a brilliant volley by Ahmad Latiff from 25 yards out.
"Getting a point in the ACL is a fantastic achievement by the team, so even one point is like three points to us," Armed Forces coach Richard Bok said.
Armed Forces had scored just two goals and allowed 15 in its four previous ACL games.
Shanghai is in third place in Group G with seven points in five matches, with its two wins coming at home.
"We seem to have a problem with scoring in our away matches," Shanghai coach Jia Xiuquan said.
Kashima Antlers of Japan leads the group on 12 points, with South Korea's Suwon Bluewings second on nine.
Shanghai beat Armed Forces 4-1 in China on March 11.
