Azkals Finally Meets Myanmar White Angels

After winning over Mongolia Blue Wolves with an aggregate score of 3-2, the Philippine Azkals were able to join the group stage of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Challenge Cup where they will play against Myanmar, Palestine and Bangladesh.

The first game against Myanmar was yesterday, March 21st and fans were totally disappointed when it was not aired live so they had to make do with getting the latest information over Twitter. At least the tweets showed the updates though as Dyan Castillejo tweeted it was kind hard for them too since internet was not working that well. The one thing that was a problem in Mongolia that resulted in having a winter team wear for Azkals was not a problem in Myanmar since we almost have the same weather. The absence of Neil Etheridge was not felt in Myanmar but it certainly made you want to see him in action again.
