The blow by blow updates via tweetcasting of team’s keeper Neil Etheridge himself who was watching on the sidelines because of the the red card he acquired in the last game, kept me aware of what’s really happening live in Katmandu stadium. I watched the game on TV and at the same time peeked at the tweets of other sports caster covering live in the field.
It was an easy goal for the Philippine Azkals against Palestine when Phil Younghusband scored a goal on the early 4th minute. The Palestine equalized on the 22nd. Before the halftime break, Angel Guirado scored another goal. Half time ended with score Philippine 3 – 1 Palestine.
I saw Azkals playing like a hungry warrior battling for the win, the 3rd place. If they played the game this way in the semis, they could have won to battle for finals. But God has the answer to it all. It’s too young and too soon for the nation to win for the finals. Azkals will go home with a big win, A big victory for young playing football nation.
Phil scored 2 goals and one goal each for the Guirado brothers, Angel and Juan Luis. The FT score Philippine 4 – 3 Palestine made the team to the 3rd AFC Challenge Cup 2012.
You deserve a hero’s welcome. You made us proud again!
Congratulations to the Philippine Azkals!
