Team Philippines Holds Out

With the latest draw against Syria, the Azkals of the Team Philippines hold on to second place in the group. National Coach Taka has expressed some disappointment with the recent result but he still enjoys both the confidence and support of the country's managers. As the remaining matches play out, we hope to see the National Team earn a spot in the next stage of the road to the World Cup, whether as outright group leaders, should Oman falter, or as one of the top second places finishers (after a playoff with similarly placed nations from different groups).

We hope and we toil, that is the best we can do.
