Azkals Congratulated by P-Noy After 3-2 Aggregate Score Against Mongolia


The Philippine Azkals suffered a loss from the hometown foes during their March 15 match held at the National Sports Stadium in Ulan Bator, Mongolia.

Though the Azkals scored the first goal during the first half courtesy of James Younghusband, the Mongolians who are used to the freezing temperature had gotten back with an equalizer.  The first goal from the Blue Wolves hot fired up the team and went for a go-ahead with another goal settling the second leg match of Philippines vs Mongolia with a 1-2 score.

Despite the loss, the Azkals still proceeds to the AFC Challenge Cup with an aggregate score of 3-2.  The Azkals won their first meeting against Mongolia 2-o that was held in Bacolod last February.

The AFC Challenge Cup on its next stage which will be held from March 21-30 in Rangoon, Myanmar.  Our very own national football team will have to face Myanmar, Bangladesh and Palestine.

The President of the Philippines immediately sent his congratulations to the team.

President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III said in an official statement:

“The Filipino people stand united in congratulating our Philippine Azkals on their 3-2 aggregate win against the Mongolian football team during their pre-qualifying playoff match for the group stage of the Asian Football Confederation Challenge Cup.

This is a victory borne out of the constant striving for excellence of our very own Azkals. Their excellence is not borne of luck, but of the perseverance that characterizes true athletes: discipline, cooperation, teamwork.

“Along with their sportsmanship, these values continue to provide a rallying point for our countrymen. They symbolize our nation’s new era of transformation, in which our people stand at the cusp of greater glory on the world stage.”


Way to go Azkals!
