The score Tajikistan 1 – 2 Philippines made the Azkals Team for the final four. It was a big victory for the Azkals who gave the best fight and worked hard for the game.
It was on the 43rd when Tajikistan scored a goal. It was just so fast, really fast and I just wished for an instant and zoomed-in replay for that controversial goal. Nine mins after, my world stopped for a while and screamed when Phil Younghusband finally scored a goal. Now, that’s a real goal! Angel Guirado, on a very close range, headed the ball on the 80th min. He was injured after but made a big contribution to the team’s success sending them off to the final four.
It was a do or die game. A very physical game where too many players were injured. Both teams fought for the semi finals. Too many yellowcards were also given to Azkals including Angel Guirado and James Younghusband.
Losers will go home while the final four will meet for the next game. Congrats Azkals!
