MANILA, Philippines – O.J. Porteria’s long-range strike in the 78th minute propelled the Philippine Azkals to a 1-0 victory over the Myanmar White Angels in their friendly in Yangon Wednesday night.
The aggressive Myanmar side pounded the Azkals’ defense for most of the match, but the White Angels failed to avenge their loss to the Philippines at the Suzuki Cup.
The friendly is part of the Azkals’ build-up for the AFC Challenge Cup qualifiers that will take place in Manila next month.
Two more friendlies are being set up for the national team. -- Mornings @ ANC, February 7, 2013
