Azkals draws with Sri Lanka,
1-1 in 1st leg of World Cup qualifier

The agony of watching Sri Lanka up ahead in the 41st minute off a deflected free-kick that beat Neil Etheridge in goal turned to relief with Nate Burkey scoring the equalizer as Philippines and Sri Lanka settled for a 1-1 draw in the first leg of a home-and-away series of the first round of the 2014 World Cup Qualifiers at the Sugathadasa Stadium in Colombo yesterday.

Making his debut for the Azkals, Burkey’s 50th minute goal was a follow up on James Younghusband’s saved header off a loop from Chieffy Caligdong, after the Azkals were awarded a free kick 25 yards from goal.
