Younghusband Brothers Out of the Peace Cup Line Up

I recently learned that Phil and James Younghusband are out of the Philippine Azkals line up for the Philippine Football Peace Cup 2012. According to PFF, they were removed from the list for the tournament due to “economic and non-economic” reasons. Coach Hans Michael Weiss also added that the Younghuband brothers were not able to keep their promise in terms of making the Philippine football team their highest priority and that he has been lenient with them for about a year. However, PFF clarified and said, “ This is not a sanction to anyone. They're just not selected. Coaching staff chose the best players.”

Laos Remains Ubeaten by Philippines After Scoring 2-1 In Friendly

Last night was the Laos vs Philippines friendly match and the latter lost 2-1 after both teams finished with 10-men. The first half of the match ended scoreless but Laos became more aggressive in the second half after changing four men from their first half line up. Their aggression paid off as the Azkals fell short on defending cleanly after two penalty shots were awarded to Laos which were both successfully taken. 

There was a commotion after the first goal of the home team which cost both teams one team member each. Lights in the stadium remained steady even while both teams were at each other’s throats thanks to suppliers of the stadium lights and you can find other light fixtures like the bulbs used in football stadiums and you can also find t8 here.

Rob Gier was able to pull back one goal during the stoppage time and the match ended with a 2-1 score. The Philippine Azkals has never beaten Laos in all of their past meetings.

Philippines Exacts Revenge vs Singapore in Friendly

The Philippine Azkals rallied to a 2-goal win against the Singapore Lions in a friendly match last Friday held at the Jurong West Stadium. The challenge coin was accepted by the Philippine nation football team and they took first goal which was made in the 8th minute by Chieffy Caligdong. Phil Younghusband made the second goal in the 49th minute from a long ball off Stephen Schrock.

The last win by the Azkals against the Lions was 26 years ago and this victory was a great boost to the Philippine team after a draw against Cambodia a few days before.
