Philippine Azkals ready for Peace Cup title defense


The Philippine Azkals are bracing for their title defense in the 3rd Philippine Football Peace Cup slated September 1 to 9, at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex football field.

Dan Palami, the Azkals’ team manager, said that the Philippines would battle Myanmar, Palestine and Taiwan in the meet that would also serve as a tune-up game for the 2014 Asean Suzuki Cup tournament in November.

“We’re expecting that this year’s edition is very tough knowing all teams have improved well, so we’re expecting a competitive tournament,” said Palami. “This is a good preparation for us before the Suzuki Cup. The Peace Cup will measure the team’s capability for Suzuki Cup.”

The Azkals are currently training under American coach Thomas Dooley.

Palami added that the retirement of Stephan Schrock and Dennis Cagara because of their disagreement with Dooley is now a closed case, “That’s nothing anymore. Not an issue,” he said.

Filipino-Japanese Daisake Sato, Filipino-German Michael Ott and Filipino-Australian Iain Ramsay are the possible players that could fill in the posts left by Schrock and Cagara.

Here’s Philippine Azkals’ Peace Cup Schedule:

September 3 Azkals vs. China Taipei
September 6 Azkals vs. Myanmar
September 9 Azkals vs. Palestine
