Azkals game postponed due to heavy rain

AUCKLAND, New Zealand (UFNews) - The first game of the Long Teng Cup tournament, between the Philippines and Hong Kong's U-23 squad, was stopped and postponed due to heavy rain.

The pitch was apparently flooded and forced the referee to stop the match at the 14th minute. The scores were still at 0-0.

The match will be played tomorrow at the same time and venue.

The starting line-up of the Philippines consisted of: goalkeeper Eduard Sacapano; defenders Aly Borromeo, Anton del Rosario, David Basa, Jerry Barbosa and Rob Gier; midfielders Roel Gener, James Younghusband and Nestor Margarse Jr.; while Ian Araneta and Chieffy Caligdong were the strikers.

It is unknown if whether the same line-up will be retained for tomorrow.



  1. cant wait for the games. good luck boys! go philippines!

  2. Why is their kit not Mizuno? What they're wearing looks very cheap and is also not branded. The 3-year deal with Mizuno hasn't expired yet, so all the more baffling.
