THE Philippines Azkals are looking at the possibility of playing against the runner-up in the qualifiers for the Suzuki Cup in their home match at the newly renovated the Cebu City Sports Center this November.
And instead of holding it on Nov. 15, they will hold it on Nov. 16, a Friday, to encourage more people to watch.

“The one with Singapore is not yet confirmed though they really want to play against us, we might invite the second qualifier in the Suzuki Cup,” said Palami.
The teams playing in the qualifying round for the Suzuki Cup are Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Brunei, Timor Leste. The top qualifier will join Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines in the group stage, while the second-ranked qualifier will be in the Malaysia group.
Palami also said PFF has approved the scheduled match in Cebu and has included it in
their calendar.
“Friday might be a conducive for those who will be watching because there would be no work the next day,” said Palami.
The friendly match will feature local-based players in the Philippine Azkals lineup.
