This time around, the Philippine squad will be backed by a legendary coach Sven-Goran Eriksson and Azkals team captain Phil Younghusband is so ecstatic about it.
“I was a 15-year-old boy in England watching Sven manage England,” Younghusband said.
“With his track record, he’s one of the best managers in the world, so to have him here in the Philippines, everyone is very proud and honored. It’s good to speak to Sven one-on-one, and when he speaks to the team, he gives us good information to help the team learn and grow,” he added.
Fandi Ahmad the head coach of team Singapore has high regards to home team considering how they boosted their FIFA rankings in just a short period of time.
“They have improved through the years. Hopefully this time we have more committed players and a disciplined team to fight for a slot in the next stage,” Ahmad said.
