Another thing to rejoice for the Filipinos. Our football team currently participating in the Suzuki Cup in Vietnam has barged into the semifinals of the prestigious event. This is a welcome development for the Azkals as this is a big accomplishment to them.
The past few days have been headlines as they trounce traditional powerhouse and defending champion Vietnam 2-0 causing a very big buzz in the Southeast Asian region. This came after the opening 1-1 draw of the Filipinos against 3-time champion Singapore. After they had a goal-less draw against Myanmar, it is now time to celebrate as the Philippines has finally made steady grounds in football. Two more famous names in the team include Phil Younghusband and Chris Greatwich.
It will face powerhouse Indonesia in the semifinals. Here's hoping we can still spell the same magic we have weaved in the first 3 matches. Defense has been the key of Philippines victories and despite criticisms from others about the inability of the team on the offensive side, I think that they just can't accept the fact that the Azkals really did a good job. Go Azkals!
