The Azkals dominated the 2nd leg of its World Cup qualifier match against Sri Lanka 4-0 to clinch a 2nd Round match-up with Kuwait. The aggregate score is 5-1 in favor of the Philippine National Football Team that made history for making its first appearance in the 2nd Round of any World Cup qualifiers.
The World Cup dream was kept alive by the goals of Emilio “Chieffy” Caligdong (19min), Phil Younghusband (43, 57 pen), and Angel Guirado(50). It was a dominating display for Azkals who played for the first time a match with significance in the country’s capital. The match was very entertaining and watching a rout by the Philippines can make a regular Sunday of a Filipino sports fan extra special. The match was telecast by Studio 23 and there will be a replay on July 5 at 4 pm.
