Azkals Triumphant vs Bangladesh; Preparing for 2014 World Cup in Brazil


Our very own Philippine Azkals surmounted a very difficult task last Friday after taking a commanding 3-0 win against Bangladesh.  The Azkals made history with the win as they took a place for the 2012 Asian Football Confederation Challenge Cup.

A draw or a loss could have automatically sent home the team and ended their rally.

During their group stage match, the Azkals faced Myanmar and settled for a 1-1 draw.  During their second game, the match against the much-stronger Palestinian team ended with 0-0.

The Azkals took second place after Palestine on their group stage match.

But with the success of the team, they said that they don’t want to celebrate too early.  They added that they are eyeing for a tougher competition.

They said that they are also preparing for the 2014 World Cup tournament that will be held in Brazil.

“That will be their next assignment,” said Azkals striker Ian Araneta.

But to do this, the Azkals said that they are working on coming up with an “Azkals Dream Team.”

Their head coach together with some players are heading to Germany and the United States to scout for more Fil-foreign players who are willing to join the Philippine National Football team.
