Make music as the Philippines makes history in the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup 2012. With the very busy preparations by the Philippine Azkals it is highly possible that they end up as champions in this tournament. So you can prepare your musical instruments, the drums and percussion, the electric and acoustic guitar with Cleartone guitar strings and the vuvuzuelas and trumpets even. Skeptics say that the preparations by the Philippine Men’s National Football team can either work for them or against them. Let’s just see.

Last night, the Philippine Azkals faced Bahrain in a FIFA friendly match and the result was a scoreless but historic draw in favour of the Philippines. During the first half, the Filipinos played like the higher ranking team with more attempts and more attempts on target even with a lower possession percentage.
In the second half, Bahrain appeared like a completely different team than the one that played during the first 45 minutes. They dominated the possession and bombarded the Filipino side with great build ups but were not able to finish. The Azkals dug in and also had their own share of missed opportunities.

The national football team of the Philippines known as the Philippine Azkals are in the Middle East training camp now which is part of their preparations for the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup 2012 in November. Observed to have the most preparations, the Azkals put on their work uniforms to be exposed to higher ranked teams in the Middle East.
The Younghusbands, brothers Phil and James, have also been tapped again by the Philippine Football Federation for the said camp but it has been suggested that they go straight to Kuwait and miss the friendly match against Bahrain to give them ample time to adjust and prepare.
