After their last two games ended up in draws, the Philippine Football Team aka the Philippine Azkals cannot settle for anything else but to win their last group qualifying match against the Bangladesh team at the Aung San Stadium in Rangoon, Myanmar this Friday, March 25.
Azkals' two points (one point for each of the two previous games) currently make them third in Group A with two points behind Bangladesh (three points) and Palestine (four points). However only the top 2 teams will advance to the main draw of the Asian Football Confederation Challenge Cup next year, making the Bangladesh fight a very crucial one for the Azkals.
To be held at 5 p.m. (Manila time), the Philippines-Bangladesh match will be held simultaneously with Myanmar-Palestine tiff in another venue to avoid manipulation of results.
Again, the Azkals cannot afford losing or settling for a draw since it would me the end of their campaign.
A victory will give them an additional 3 points allowing them to take a spot to the next round regardless of the outcome of the other match.
