MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Azkals are all set for their friendly match against world-rated Azerbaijan.
The Azkals arrived in Dubai Tuesday and spent time viewing Saturday’s friendly against Malaysia before plunging into practice for the Azerbaijan outing.
Playing with a renewed drive and attacking style as well as improved passing, the Azkals battled a full-strength Malaysia side to a scoreless draw.
Also giving a good account of himself was goal-keeper Patrick Deyto, who had a clean slate in his first game for the national team. -- Mornings @ ANC, March 5, 2014.
