Azkals win, 2-0

A fearless one-on-one attack from the wily Chieffy Caligdong in the 43rd minute and a powerful kick near the goal’s mouth by Phil

Younghusband, four minutes into injury time, capped the successful taming by the Philippine football team Azkals of the Mongolia Blue Wolves, 2-0, in the first leg of the AFC Challenge Cup qualifying playoff at the Panaad Park and Sports Stadium in Bacolod City last night.

Caligdong found the perfect opportunity to score as he skillfully eluded his defender and maneuvered the ball from the upper left flank to score the Azkal’s first goal.

‘It was a proud
moment for Filipinos’


Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon and Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia last night said the victory of the Philippine Azkals over the Mongolian national team was a proud moment for Filipinos.

Leonardia and Marañon, accompanied by Philippine Football Federation president Mariano Araneta, shook the hands of the players of both teams at the Panaad Sports Stadium field before the start of the game.

Marañon said he was very, very happy, and proud as a Filipino with the Azkals victory.moremoremore

‘Cinderella’ makes

Aside from the airport being too far from the site, they also discovered that traffic was so heavy on the roads leading to Panaad that they were afraid they would miss the game. So they decided to literally make a run for it, and run they did.moremoremore
