Azkals Settle for Draw Vs. Sri Lanka
The Philippine Azkals had a dozen close calls to get away with a win in Sri Lanka, but as time expired, the team can only settle for a draw.
Our very own Philippine Football team managed to negate a first half goal by the Sri Lankan team, with the ever-sturdy Chieffy Caligdong hitting the goal just a few minutes into the second half. But just like the black birds who chilled out on the football lawn, it seemed everything went cold for both teams, who also had a lot of physicality against each other. Yellow cards were being slapped one after another just in the first half. Seems to indicate how tight the game was.
In the end, the Azkals are coming home with an away goal advantage to finally seal the deal here in Manila on Sunday, July 3.
A win here will pit the Azkals against Kuwait, which stands at number 48 in the world rankings.
