Who Let the Dogs Out: Way to go PHL Azkals!

Posted by iAMjett™ 6:47 AM, under | No comments

Today marks another momentous day in the Philippine sports. From the Panaad Park and Stadium in Bacolod, our very own Philippine Azkals mightily roared over the Mongolian fleet of young footballers (2-0) on the 1st leg of the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Challenge Cup 2012 Qualifiers. Calendars ready for marking as March 15, 2011 is the scheduled second leg of the qualifying match set to happen in Ulan Bator, Mongolia.

Today's revelry has more thanking to do with the lone goal of the first half made by PHL's Emil "Chieffy" Caligdong in the 42nd minute and to Phil Younghusband’s scoring the second concluding goal. The team's combined effort of winning of course garnered them the control of the game to the end of the first leg; not to mention the unwavering cheers of support by hundreds of Filipinos who came to watch the game live.



I’m actually not a huge fan of the game 'football' but watching the recent playoff of Team Azkals made me an instant enthusiast. Once I thought football is like basketball which I questionably find hard to understand the rules of. But apparently I was made wrong, in fact it’s a lot less complicated than basketball.

The Azkals is currently ranked 152nd in the FIFA World Rankings, which would require them to accrue score higher than Mongolia after the anticipated home-and-away series for the team to finally be enlisted in the tournament’s group level (game to this is said to be held in Bangladesh).

The popularity of Philippine Azkals has become phenomenal that FIFA or Fédération Internationale de Football Association (International Federation of Association Football) has taken notice.

And so like FIFA, let's hope for Philippine Azkals' bringing pride and honor will finally invoke national government support.
