MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Azkals are now just a win away from making it back to the semi-finals of the AFF Suzuki Cup.

On a team full of Filipino-foreigners, it was the contributions of two homegrown players that spelled the biggest difference.

Veteran striker Chieffy Caligdong was the hero for the Philippine XI, smashing in the lone goal of the match against Vietnam for a 1-0 win.

But goal-keeper Ed Sacapaño was equally valuable, keeping a clean sheet against an aggressive Vietnam squad and tapping out a late goal attempt that could have been an equalizer.
