Azkals vs. nat’l U22 team
in San Carlos City today

Getting ready for their June 1 friendly game against Malaysia, the Philippine men’s football team Azkals will have a tune up match today, 4 p.m. in San Carlos City against the Under 22 national team.

Philippine Football Federation technical director for Visayas John Carmona, who was also tapped to coach the U22 national team, said it will be a good match-up as he is expecting the younger team to give their best against the Azkals.

The U22 squad has been training in San Carlos early this month in preparation for the AFC Championships Qualifier in Myanmar starting June 23.
