Azkals updates Saturday

Azkals playing last AFC Challenge Cup group match tomorrow in capital Male on 4 pm Maldives time ( 7 pm Philippines)

Injury problems :

- Neil Etheridge
- Chris Greatwich
- Juani Guirado

Neil Etheridge was released by Fulham Fc today  , his contract expired this month.

Turkmenistan got two players sent off  against Afghanistan: Nikita Gorbunov (GK) and Serdar Annaorazov (DF) are suspended in the match against Philippines. Also Shohrat Soyunov (two yellow cards ) will be serving suspension.

Ruslan Mingazov (MF) from Latvian club Skonto Riga is expected to strengthen the Turkmenistan team. He did not play the first two matches.

Philippines qualify for semifinal with a win or draw against Turkmenistan.


  1. Etheridge for global..
    Come one palami lets sign him.

  2. if they had won vs. Afghanistan they could almost rest tomorrow....so after the poor performance of Turkmenistan against the Afghans I think we can book our home tickets as I expect a win of Turkmenistan ...espcially they get reinforced by their top striker ....one of the kind we are missing badly right now

  3. The 2-0 scoreline against Laos is a bit troublesome; could have scored more. I think they are playing way better but the most important thing is finishing those chances. Turkmen lost the last time by 1-0 scoreline against a much offensive Azkals with Patino in the mix. It's just a little concerning that we control the game much but we still lack in finishing. I'm sure Turkmen will come into this game with a chip on their shoulder.... It's gonna be a good physical game... I hope our team will start to convert those chances into scores...
