The Philippine Azkals vs. Myanmar's White Angels match ended in a draw with each team having one goal each.
The game was the first of a series for the group qualifying tournament of the Asian Football Confederation Challenge Cup. The teams in the group are the Philippine Azkals, Myanmar's White Angels, Bangladesh's Bengal Tigers, and Palestine's The Fighters.
It was just sad that the Philippines didn't have any live streaming of the game but internet proved to be very useful as Dyan Castillejo tweeted live from the game in Myanmar.
The first half of the game ended with a 0-0 score but according to Dyan, Myanmar's ball handling was very good that they could get through the Azkals' defense. Myanmar also had so many near goals but thanks to our Goal Keeper Neil Etheridge he prevented Myanmar from scoring.
On the second half of the game, James Younghusband was the first to score at 76th minute. It was almost a winning situation but during the 3-minute extension of the game, Myanmar's White Angels scored making it a draw.
A team needs 6 points in order to qualify. A win equals 3 points, so the Azkals needs 2 wins to qualify. They could've had 3 points already but the game finished in a draw and a draw equals 1 point.
Let's just pray for the Philippine Azkals victory against Palestine's The Fighters on March 23rd and against Bangladesh's Bengal Tigers on the 25th.
