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.
