Currently third in Group H with a record of two wins, one draw and three losses and seven points, the Azkals, as the Philippine team is known, are already out in the running for a World Cup stint but are still in the mix for the Asian Cup qualifiers especially if they hold on to the third spot.
As per tournament format, the top two teams from the eight groupings advance to the next round of the joint qualifiers with the rest having to fight it out for spots limited only to the Asian Cup.
In Group H, North Korea (5-1-1) with 16 points and Uzbekistan (5-0-1) with 15 hold the top two spots and are set to advance. Bahrain (2-0-4) is at fourth with six points and Yemen (1-0-6) fifth with three points.
The Azkals, who are coming off back-to-back losses against Bahrain (2-0) and Yemen (1-0) that effectively dashed their World Cup hopes, will be missing key pieces against Uzbekistan tomorrow at 8:30 p.m., Manila time.
Misagh Bahadoran and Manny Ott are to sit it out after being suspended on card accumulation while Rob Gier has called it a career and Paul Mulders and Jerry Lucena hanging it up in international competition.
Left to carry the Azkals’ cause are Neil Etheridge, Javier Patino, Iain Ramsay, Patrick Reichelt, Amani Aguinaldo, Daisuke Sato, Martin Steuble and Juani Guirado, to name a few.
But despite the circumstances the Azkals are in, for Ryan Fenix, resident football analyst of Interaksyon.com and author of the column Rampaging Fullback, there is more to play for the team in the World Cup Qualifiers wind-up and that the Azkals still have something to give.
The Uzbekistan vs. Philippines match will be aired at 9:00pm (Manila time) on 24 March 2016 via ABS-CBN Sports+Action Channel 23.
