This is certainly bad news for football fans like me because of the recent lost of the Azkals against the Al-Azraqs earlier this evening. The 2nd leg for the Round 2 of the FIFA World Cup Qualifier was held at Rizal Memorial Stadium which was aired live via Studio 23. The Azkals scored the 1st goal at the half time of the game. Although the rainy weather condition made it hard for the Al-Azraqs unlike the Azkals, they came back to score 2 points which led them to victory. The game ended with a 2-1 score in favor of the Al-Azraqs. The aggregate score for the Round 2 of Kuwait vs. Philippines is 1-5 which means that the Al-Azraqs will move on to the next round of the qualifiers and the elimination of the Philippines.
However, the Azkals coach said that they've learned a lot from these experiences and will be working harder for the future. It is reported that they are getting themselves ready to compete for the Asian Cup.
No matter what, let us keep on supporting our national teams because losing is always part of the game. Hence, we must stand up and fight even harder to achieve our goals.
