MANILA, Philippines — Neil Etheridge and eight others will miss the Philippine Azkals’ campaign in the World Cup and Asian Cup qualifiers which begin June 3 in Suzhou, China.

As per the Philippine Azkals’ social media accounts, Etheridge won’t be with the team due to surgery. The Fil-British goalkeeper plays for Birmingham City in the English Football League Championship.


Also dealing a huge blow to the Azkals’ bid is the absence of Patrick Strauss, Niko De Vera, Iain Ramsay, Carlie De Murga, Raphael Obermair, Gerrit Holtmann, Lloyd Fagerlie and Jesper Nyholm.


To fill the void, the Azkals have called up Kaya FC-Iloilo’s Kenshiro Daniels, United City’s Mike Ott and Azkals Development Team’s Quincy Kammeraad.

Daniels, Ott and Kammeraad as well as Justin Baas, who was also called up earlier this week, joined the rest of the team in their Doha camp on Saturday.

The Azkals leave for Shanghai on Monday. They play three matches in China beginning with a clash against Guam on Thursday before taking on the host on June 9 and Maldives on June 15.
