Homeless World Cup - Philippines beat Norway !
The Philippines raced into an early 2-0 lead thanks to some great buold up that split the Norwegian defence apart but it did not take long for the Norwegians to muscle their way back into the game with an expertly taken goal by Lund. The game ebbed and flowed for the rest of the half with the Philipino players providing a masterclass in ball retention. The Norwegians were more direct on the ball and continued to move the play with a rushed tempo. This perhaps lead to them tiring under the sun and the Philipines exploited this with a second half attack that led to what ended up being the winner. Pasion continued his fine form in the tournament to slip the ball past Norway's strong keeper. The Scandinavians pulled one back but a two goal deficit meant that there was norway back and it was crowd favourites Phillipines who took the points.
