Philippines secure narrow win against Kyrgyzstan

Philippines senior football team secured a morale boosting 1-0 win over Kyrgyzstan at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in a warm-up fixture on Wednesday.

In what was their third win from their last six fixtures, the Azkals grinded out a much needed victory over the 99th ranked team in the world.

The only goal of the game came in the 65th minute through crowd favorite and Global FC winger Misagh Bahadoran, with his fifth senior international goal.

Head coach Thomas Dooley will no doubt be pleased with the final preparation for the AFF Suzuki Cup – which they are hosting as of next week.

The tournament kicks off on Saturday the 19th of November with the home side taking on Singapore in the opening game.
