The Philippine national men’s football team will be facing Cambodia in the Azkals’ final tuneup before heading to the ASEAN Football Federation Suzuki Cup in November.
The 129th-ranked Azkals and the 185th-ranked Cambodia will face off on November 14 at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium, the Philippine Football Federation announced on Tuesday.
Cambodia fell short of qualifying for the Suzuki Cup after finishing third in the qualifiers this month. Myanmar and Laos made it to the tournament proper after finishing No.1 and No.2, respectively.
Apart from the match against Cambodia, the Azkals have two more friendlies lined up in their schedule. The Filipinos will play Nepal during a training tour in Doha, Qatar on Friday and local club Al Ahli SC on Sunday before playing as visitors against Thailand on November 10 in Nakhon Ratchasima.
The Azkals are grouped with host Vietnam, Indonesia and Laos in the Suzuki Cup where the Filipinos aim to surpass their semifinal finishes in the past two editions.
