The Azkals drama is not over yet.
The decision of Filipino-German midfielder Stephan Schrock to quit the Philippine Azkals already surprised sports fans. The reason for his exit, however, was even more shocking.
As if saving a penalty in a major tournament isn’t hard enough, Roland Muller pulled off the feat twice in consecutive matches for the Philippines in the AFC Challenge Cup here.
Enduring a tough season at club level, the Philippines’ goalkeeper Neil Etheridge is hoping that his stint with the Azkals in the AFC Challenge Cup ends in a blaze of glory this time.
Only the best preparation will suffice for the most important tournament yet for the Philippine Azkals. Acknowledging the importance of the task at hand, the Philippine Azkals will leave no stone unturned in their buildup for the AFC Challenge Cup finals in the Maldives in May.
