AFC President's Cup in Bacolod

Azkals news

Azkals updates

Only home friendly before AFC Challenge Cup will be played in Cebu on April 27 against Malaysia.

This will  probably be last chance for many Philippines based players to impress coach Dooley that they should be in the final squad for AFC Challenge Cup.

No news about the squad for Malaysia , but the squad will be released soon. I dont expect many changes from the squad that played in Qatar.

Patrick Deyto just confirmed that he will be ready for Malaysia friendly !

Azkals will be going on last training camp on May 6 to Bahrain. A friendly on May 11 in Bahrain is planned but opponent has not been decided yet.
