AFF Suzuki Cup 2010: Philippines draws with Myanmar, enters semifinals
The Philippines was held to a goalless stalemate by Myanmar Wednesday night but clinched a semifinal spot in the 2010 ASEAN Football Championship (AFF) Suzuki Cup.
The White Angels dominated the first half, but the Filipinos’ defense stayed tough throughout the game. Simon McMenemy’s men had several good scoring chances after the half-time break, but the goalpost was in the way on several occasions.
Last Sunday Vietnam was shocked by the Philippines as the Azkals notched a 2-0 victory against Henrique Calisto’s squad. The Philippines will face Indonesia in the two-legged semi-final starting on December 16, while Vietnam will go up against Malaysia after the defending champions beat Singapore 1-0 in their final Group B encounter.
