RP vs. Mongolia tiff
BY NIDA BUENAFE
Philippine Football Federation president Mariano Araneta is hopeful that President Benigno Aquino III could find time to grace the RP Azkals vs. Mongolia match-up at the Panaad Sports Stadium in Bacolod City on Feb. 9.
Araneta has coordinated with the Philippine Sports Commission on Monday about the letter of invitation to the President.
Should the president grace the event, he will lead the entire Filipino nation in supporting the Azkals against Mongolia in its opening duel in the Asian Football Confederation Challenge Cup.
