This coming New Year I won’t be traveling much because the Philippine Azkals are also on their vacation. I won’t have to deal with my vehicle overheating or using a tire changer. But come January, the boys will again be back on training to prepare for the AFC Challenge Cup 2013. This year, the Philippines will host its group stage matches and we are hoping that they would win the AFC Challenge Cup 2013 this time.

Thailand is through to the AFF Suzuki Cup 2012 finals and will be facing Singapore as they defeated defending champions, Malaysia. This is a cause of celebration for the host country, Thailand and for sure many of their countrymen are celebrating already, partying, enjoying music and maybe even singing their hearts out. Some may be listening or even playing live music using their own musical instruments and a mic.
But their celebration should wait until they win the championship which would be perfect as they are hosting the tournament but they must not be too confident because Singapore may just be able to snatch a win over them.

The Philippine Azkals bowed out of contention in the AFF Suzuki Cup 2012 after losing 1-0 against Singapore in their away leg last night. They held the latter scoreless and were goalless as well during the home leg. Some may think that it would be better for the Azkals to get beauty pageant awards because they probably are the most good looking South East Asian team, but their football skills can’t e easily written off as they have sustained going through the group stage in the AFF Suzuki Cup for the second time. Now, they will just focus their sights on the next tournament, the AFC Challenge Cup where they will be hosting the Group stage matches.

The Philippines kept a clean sheet with a 0-0 draw against Singapore in the first leg of the AFF Suzuki Cup 2012 semi finals. The Singapore Lions were the better team during the first half having at least two attempts that were wasted against one from the Azkals through an attempt by Phil Younghusband.

The Philippine Azkals are in the AFF Suzuki Cup 2012 semi-finals again to face Singapore on December 8, 2012 for the home leg and on the 12th for the away leg. This is after finishing second in the group stage, overcoming what is known as the “group of death”. After getting beat 2-1 by Thailand, the Azkals bounced back to beat Vietnam 1-0 and Myanmar 2-0.
