What’s funny is, just when the game is about to start, after having called the players  of each team for the line-up, the rain started to fall, the more the applause the more heavier the rain poured, but nobody seemed to care at all! Kids, women, men, boys, old and young fans stood  up and watched the game while bathing in the rain. It was an ultimately fun experience. This event will never happen in a basketball game or a boxing match.
The Azkals did not disappoint the fans showing impressive ball control and dominating the Sri Lankan’s with a 4 – 0 score. The match was very thrilling and every goal seemed  to  electrify everyone in the stadium. As the crowd chanted “Pilipinas!” and as everyone cheers louder and louder, our players seem to push more and more to further impress the crowd. And even if the Azkals are mostly half breed well hence the name Azkals. A sense of patriotism and unity sprung in the air and during this moment in time everyone seem to agree on one thing, that we can and we are proud to be Filipinos .  
Filipinos are a big sports fan specifically basketball and boxing and while we still need improvement in soccer, the win of the Azkals put them in a very good position to once and for all ignite the interest of more Filipinos of the most popular sports in the world, soccer football. 
The Azkals will meet  Kuwait in another home-and-away match on July 23 and 28 for the next stage in the FIFA Brazil 2014 Asian qualifiers.

Watching Azkals? you cant bring umbrella, however raincoat is allowed.

What did they learn? (here)

(Azkals) Weiss needs more time to finalize team

source: Bong Pedralvez |

After supervising the last eight days of the Azkals’ training camp-cum-tryouts, national coach Michael Weiss is not yet ready to sift the wheat from the chaff.

“We are still evaluating the new players trying out, although I haven’t seen spectacular stuff,” the 44-year-old mentor said after practice at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium that lasted until early evening last Wednesday. “I cannot single out anyone so far.”

Among those bidding to gain slots in the team are Filipino-British Chad Gould and Fil-Aussie Leigh Gunn, who previously saw action for the national team under separate coaches, plus Fil-Ams James Rochilitz and Nathaniel Burkey.

“No decision on them yet. I have to see them play in a match,” the German mentor said of the hopefuls.

“The younger ones are more interesting,” added Weiss, referring to 16-year-old Rochilitz and Burkey.

“He (Rochilitz) may be not as good as some of our present senior players, but for his age he is good in the under-20,” he said.

Weiss was also impressed by Burkey, a striker, “but he is a bit shy and if you are shy, you won’t win in football.”

As part of the weeding out process, the aspirants played five-a-side against the regulars in close quarters under time pressure for the coaches “to see their skills and determine how they will react in situations when pressed.”

The Sydney-born Gunn, who recently turned 30 and last played for the nationals during the 2006 Asian Challenge Cup group qualifiers in Bangladesh under coach Aris Caslib, said he’s optimistic of making the squad.

“It was just like old times and I know half of the guys on team,” Gunn, a forward, said. “I have to play the role the German coach wants me to play, that’s all. I’m very hopeful.”

Aware of the high stakes involved in the Asian World Cup opening round qualifying series against Sri Lanka, Weiss reiterated he would only get the best players for the Azkals, who kick off the home-and-away qualifiers against the Sri Lankans in Colombo on June 29.

“As I have said before, only the quality players who can help us can make it,” Weiss said. “Mediocre ones we have enough.”

He also issued an appeal to the mainstays to devote more time to the squad, noting the Younghusband siblings, Phil and James, who saw action in a club tournament last week, showed up for practice for the first time only at the Rizal stadium last Monday.

Azkals happy with Rizal football field makeover


Members of the Philippine Azkals are pleased with the renovation of the Rizal Memorial Football field where their home game against Sri Lanka in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers will take place.

“I’ve been playing here since I was 10 years old… this is the first time I’ve ever played in these kind of conditions… this is so good,” Azkals team captain Aly Borromeo said.

The Philippine Football Federation (PFF) worked on the rehabilitation of the 77-year-old stadium for the Philippines vs Sri Lanka home game on July 3.

The PFF had the holes in the old pitch filled to prevent the players from being injured. Even the grass on the field has been trimmed.

Borromeo said that he and his team are eager to play in front of their countrymen now that the stadium has been repaired.

We think about it everyday… we’re so excited,” he said.

Before the home game, the Azkals will be playing Sri Lanka in Colombo on June 29.

Filipino-British striker Phil Younghusband is also exited to rejoin his team after rehabbing his injury.

He joined the Azkals’ practice at the Rizal Memorial Stadium on Tuesday.

Younghusband hadn’t been with the team since March 15 after suffering a torn hamstring.

[I’m] so happy… I’ll be getting stronger,” said Younghusband.

The PFF is now mapping out the seating plan in the football stadium in preparation for the home game.

The stadium, which can accommodate up to 30,000 people, has played host to several international football games. – With a report from Dyan Castillejo, ABS-CBN News

Azkals resume training for World Cup qualifying match vs Sri Lanka

The Philippine men’s football team, the Azkals, will resume its training on May 9 to begin its build-up for its first round tie against Sri Lanka in the 2014 World Cup Asian qualifier, said team manager Dan Palami.

Palami, who graced Tuesday’s Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum, said that the Azkals will train at the Alabang Country Club in Muntinlupa City until May 23 before heading to Cebu for a team building session from May 25 to 31.
The Azkals will then head to Germany for another training camp from June 12 to 26 where they will also play tune-up matches with German Division II and Division III teams.
“The players who will play for the team against Sri Lanka will most likely be there in Germany,” said Palami.
After Germany, the team will go straight to Sri Lanka to play the first leg on June 29.
The Azkals are also hoping to practice at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in early June where they expect the field to be ready in time for the July 3 second leg.
“Hopefully, we could take advantage of the familiarity of the field,” said Palami.
Palami said that Rizal is already fit for playing but there are still minor holes in the field that requires minimal repairs.
During the Holy Week break, the Azkals have organized training camps in the United States and Germany in hopes to discover players not only for the national team but also for the Under-23 players that will compete in the 2011 Southeast Asian Games in Palembang, Indonesia. – Reuben Terrado, JVP, GMA News;header=true&height=55

Philsports football field gets P26-M facelift

source: Cedelf P. Tupas |

The Philsports pitch, which has seen better days, will soon be transformed into an artificial turf as part of the International Football Federation (Fifa) Goal Project 2 for the Philippines.

Philippine Football Federation president Mariano “Nonong” Araneta said the PFF has decided to move the project from the Parañaque lot of charismatic leader Mike Velarde to the government-owned Philsports pitch in Pasig City.

Araneta said the Philippine Sports Commission, which manages the pitch, has already agreed in principle to have the artificial turf installed in the facility.

The PSC will be turning over the management of the Philsports pitch to the PFF for the next 25 years as part of the agreement.

“We believe that putting the Goal Project in Ultra (Philsports pitch) is a wise decision,” Araneta said Monday night. “It’s accessible and convenient since its right at the center of Metro Manila.”

But a source said that some of the provisions in the Memorandum of Agreement proposed by Velarde’s group did not sit well with Fifa, including the plan to construct a stadium for the field.

Fifa also nixed the Parañaque site because the land is in the flight path of airplanes flying in and out of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

The Fifa grant for the artificial turf is worth $500,000 (roughly P21.7 million), but Araneta said the PFF will also be spending $100,000 (roughly P4.3 million) to cover the cost of buying the field.

Meanwhile, Negros Occidental dumped Leyte, 11-0, yesterday to complete a four-game sweep of the PFF Suzuki Cup Under-23 Visayas qualifiers at the Silliman field in Dumaguete City.

Filipino-American striker Joshua Beloya frolicked in a rare starting role for coach Norman Fegidero, booting in five goals for the Bacolod-based squad, which also got a hat-trick from Joven Bedic.

We’re happy with topping the group, but there’s a lot of work to be done if we are to win the national title,” said Fegidero.

Azkals visit Pacquiao in training (VIDEO)

source: Steve Angeles |

The Pacman had some special visitors at training camp on Saturday (Sunday in Manila). Philippine soccer sensations Azkals met and watched Manny Pacquiao train for his upcoming fight against “Sugar” Shane Mosley over the weekend.

The Pacman sparred 11 rounds against 4 boxers during his Saturday’s training session.

“He’s one intense character. The guy is nonstop all day. I got a new respect for him,” said Azkals defender Anton del Rosario.

When the Pacman is not concentrating on his game, he follows the Azkals, hoping they, too, can bring national pride to the Philippiness.

“I have to support them and pray lagi manalo sa bout, laban at laro. And it’s an honor nandito sila sa training ko today,” the Fighter of the Decade said.

Team Pacquiao even showed the Azkal players a few training and conditioning tips.

“It was great watching him train and even his footwork, he can probably step on the pitch with us,” Azkals team captain Aly Borromeo said.

The Azkals just hosted an open tryout in the Bay Area.

After their weekend meeting, the football players went back to Northern California to play some club games. They will return to the Philippines later this month.

In the meantime, Pacquiao’s trainer Freddie Roach–fresh of ward Amir Kahn’s victory–is expected to rejoin Team Pacquiao on Monday (Tuesday, in Manila).

For the Azkals, it was a dream come true to watch their idol practice. They are hoping the Pacman’s winning ways can rub off on them when they begin their quest for a World Cup in June.
