Philippines release 23-man squad list for 2022 World Cup Qualifiers match vs China

Published

on

The Philippine Football Federation has released a 23-man strong squad list for 2022 World Cup Qualifier encounter vs China PR, which is scheduled to be played at the Panaad Stadium in Balocod on 15th October.

Cardiff City’s shot-stopper Neil Etheridge is a part of the squad which will, most probably, be led by Stephan Schrock of Ceres-Negros FC.

The Azkals are currently third in Group A, behind top-placed China who are followed by Syria on the table. They have won one of their two matches – a 4-1 away win over Guam – while their home encounter vs Syria resulted in a 5-2 defeat.

China, on the other hand, have played only one match so far in the World Cup qualifiers, which also double up as 2023 Asian Cup qualifiers, defeating Maldives 5-0 in an away encounter. The Asian giants would hope to register a second consecutive win, while Philippines would love to create an upset on 15th October and give their home fans something to cheer about.

Cambodia has become the latest country in Southeast Asia to suspend all footballing activities including the 2020 Cambodian League season due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Several countries from ASEAN including Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and Philippines have suspended their domestic leagues in order to slow down the spread of the coronavirus while countries like Singapore and Myanmar had decided to play behind closed doors.

Cambodia were the only country to have their domestic league running in full steam in the midst of the global pandemic, but they have now decided to suspend all tournaments until further notice.

“The Football Federation of Cambodia (FFC) inform the public that in order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the FFC have decided to postpone the 14th Hun Sen Cup, Metfone Cambodian League 2020 and the U-16 National Championship, U-18 National Championship and the delay of the 2020 General Assembly of the Football Federation of Cambodia until further notice,” the FFC said.

The Hun Sen Cup, meanwhile, is the country’s domestic cup competition that is split into two stages. The provincial stage featuring clubs from the lower division was held in February, but the national stage during which the top division clubs were to join the competition now stands suspended.

Yangon United and Myanmar veteran midfielder Yan Aung Kyaw has announced that he will retire from professional football the end of the 2020 season. 

A former captain of the Myanmar national team, Aung Kyaw made his debut for the Asian Lions in 2011 and has won over 60 international caps for the Southeast Asian nation during his career.

He also won a bronze medal for Myanmar at the 2011 Southeast Asian Games while also winning five domestic league titles and three General Aung San Shields with Yangon, the club he has represented since its formation in 2009 along with the Myanmar National League (MNL).

“I previously spoke about my future and mentioned that I will not play for another MNL club against my team Yangon United and another reason is my age. Although I could play one or two more years, I don’t want to play for another club after my contract with Yangon ends in December,” he told Myanmar Times.

Aung Kyaw also hinted that he will move into coaching after retirement and that Yangon United has offered him the opportunity to work at the club.
