Azkals vs Asia’s big dogs

The Philippines men's national football team aims to rewrite history, as the Azkals participate in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup in the United Arab Emirates this month.

Coach Sven-Goran Eriksson and his crew stunned observers with their close 1-0 loss to 2015 finalists Korea, a result that has given the Filipinos confidence as the tournament progresses.

The Azkals next face China on Friday, January 11, hoping to score their first point (via draw) or even snag a historic win in their first foray in the continental competition.
