The result of the game last Tuesday, September 25, Azkals VS Guam, 1 -0 at the Rizal Memorial Stadium lifts the confidence of players for the opening of Philippine Football Peace Cup 2012. The team proved that they could score a goal themselves even without the superstars, James and the striker Phil Younghusband. As a football fan, the result was good enough, regardless of the the score because 1 -0 is still a win. Patrick Reichelt scored a header on the 81st minute and it was a right timing on the perfect spot.
The game minus Etheridge, Shrock and the Younghusband brothers brought the football fans all eyed on the new breed of players, thus it made the team work hard and display an impressive skill. They should, it’s their time to shine while the Younghusband brothers were not around on the pitch. I missed the superstars in this game especially during those moments when there were a lot of missed chances and opportunities. I spare my space from that issue why they were not included in the Phil Peace Cup. I have no direct source so I speak only from what I heard and watched on TV and internet. Anyways, Sacapano, though lack of height has played well and has now become an efficient goalkeeper. The happiest was Coach Weiss who obviously showed a very satisfying and happy face on a camera when Patrick Reichelt scored a header. That lucky score spared him from football fans and critics regarding the decisions he made for the line up.
The Azkals played well last Tuesday and they proved that by not giving a chance to a less stronger team, Guam.
Lets’ see later tonight again for another game without the Younghusband, as Azkals will face Macau, live via Studio 23. Kick off time 7:30
