SINGAPORE'S Paul Lim has described their famous Betway World Cup of Darts triumph against Scotland as a "dream come true" following Thursday's upset in Frankfurt.

Veteran star Lim and partner Harith Lim caused one of the biggest shocks in the history of the World Cup with their superb 5-2 win over top seeds Scotland.

Gary Anderson and Peter Wright, ranked second and third in the world, had been 1/16 odds-on favourites with sponsors Betway ahead of their first round clash, only to see the inspired Singapore pair claim the win.

After Paul Lim opened the tie with a 180, legs of 14 and 13 darts helped Singapore into a 3-1 lead, and when Scotland missed their chances in leg six - to level - and leg seven, the 63-year-old took out 100 to complete a memorable performance.

"It is an honour, to represent your country is the biggest thing, so to win this first round is like a dream come true," said Paul Lim.

"We were excited about the draw and when we knew that we drew Scotland we knew it was going to be tough, Gary and Peter are two of the best players in the world.

"The pressure was always on them. In a best of nine leg doubles game it's a different combination - me and Harith have played together for quite a long time so we are used to each other.

"When they missed their shot at double nine, and I said to myself that if they gave me the shot I had to make use of it. We'd missed a lot of chances and to me I had to take it and I got lucky."

Left-hander Harith Lim added: "I'm the best supporting actor, I feel so good!

"It's a partnership, we've been doing this for so many years and we take it one leg at a time and one game at a time."

PDC World Cup of Darts - Top Three Upsets
2010 - Spain 6-5 England

The world's top two ranked players, Phil Taylor, teamed up for England in the inaugural PDC World Cup of Darts in 2010 and were huge favourites against Spain's Carlos Rodriguez and Antonio Alcinas.
The Spanish duo trailed 4-2 before winning three in a row to edge in front, and both players hit 180s in the decider, which Alcinas won for an 11-dart leg.

2013 - Finland 5-3 Netherlands
Finland had been defeated in the first round of the opening two World Cups, but caused a massive shock when Jani Haavisto and Jarkko Komula knocked out the Netherlands' Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld in the 2013 second round.
Finland won four of their five legs in 14 darts or less, and hit seven perfect darts in one leg during the performance of their careers before going on to reach the semi-finals in Hamburg.

2017 - Singapore 5-2 Scotland
Scotland's Gary Anderson and Peter Wright - ranked second and third in the world - entered the 2017 World Cup as the top seeds and were heavy odds-on favourites to win their first round tie with Singapore.
But Paul Lim opened the tie with a 180 and partner Harith Lim contributed to a fine team display before the 63-year-old veteran took out 100 to complete a huge win.
