Which countries are being eyed for a friendly?China is out since they have a friendly with Andorra on the same date. But they may be accepting of a friendly match in other dates since we did them a "favor" by defeating North Korea for them to qualify to the next round of World Cup qualifiers.Guam is a decent opponent than years ago, considering their form lately.For teams outside the AFC, maybe a friendly with Tahiti or one of the post-USSR states, like Kazakhstan.Hong Kong and Singapore has direct flights to Iloilo, and are familiar but decent teams to face.
Hong Kong , Vietnam and Singapore are all playing in a 4 nations tournament in Myanmar.Oceania's teams are playing World Cup qualifiers in Early June
Thanks for the info!
PFF should invite a Middle East team probably same level of current azkals:Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain, OmanOr rematch with north koreaGuam is a more competitive opponent nowThailand will only be eager to play against azkals if the latter will play in a thailand stadiumHow about st kitts & nevis or a CAF team?
Rumored team na makalalaro nila sa June 7 ay Syria
I hope that's trueSyria is a strong and quality opponentThey advanced to the Third Round of World Cup Qualifiers only losing to Japan home and away and beating all the other 3 teams (Singapore, Afghanistan, Cambodia)despite their country being torn by civil war it doesn't distract them or change their gameplay
They can fly directly to Iloilo via Singapore or HK.
Vietnam FA has confirmed friendly against Syria in Hanoi on May 31.Very likely now that Syria will then go to Philippines after that friendly.It could be that PFF is planning to play two friendlies. One friendly around June 3 and a second friendly on June 7
Better if azkals play against two teams this JunePreparations for aff suzuki cup
