It is very heartening to see that Pinoys are going crazy over football. Thank goodness we have the Azkals. And just yesterday they were featured front-page at Fifa website, ahead of today’s matches for the AFC Qualifying matches against Mongolia. And yes we won the first round today! 2-0. “Chiefly” and Adorable Phil made the goals as fans goes wild inside the jampacked Panaad Stadium in Bacolod. Now, i really wish someone will build a football stadium in the metro so we could host a game anytime. Wouldn’t that be a dream?
And Neil Etheridge cleansheet in today’s match was also reported by his team Fulham in their website…
Should the Philippine Azkals wins again over Mongolia in the second leg this March, this time, Mongolia will be the host, the Azkals will compete against Myanmar, Palestine and Bangladesh in the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup between the 20th and 31st Match 2011.
There’s only one thing i can say… Go, Go, Azkals!
