AUSTRALIAN League club Perth Glory arrived in Manila yesterday for a pre-season training camp highlighted by a friendly match with the Philippine Azkals on Tuesday at Quirino Stadium in Vigan, Ilocos Sur.
Glory kicks off a three-game swing in the country with a friendly against United Football League powerhouse Global FC at 3:30 p.m. today at Rizal Memorial Stadium.
While Glory is preparing for a hard grind back in the A-League, the Azkals also need tuneup matches as they prepare to host the AFF Suzuki Cup in December at Philippine Sports Stadium in Bulacan.
The Aussie club will also play against a UFL All-Star team on Saturday as part of the league’s all-star festivities. The Philippines against Rest of the World game will serve as the curtainraiser for the UFL All Stars-Perth Glory match.
Bannered by former Australian national and youth team standouts, Glory finished fifth in last season’s A-League.
