MANILA, Philippines – There will be everything to fight for as the Philippines take on Vietnam Tuesday night, November 27, at the Rajamangala Stadium.

The Azkals need to win the game to come a step closer to the semi-finals, after a 2-1 loss to hosts Thailand last Saturday, November 24. Vietnam too is desperate for a victory after tying Myanmar 1-1. 

As it stands, the Philippines is in the bottom of the group with zero points, while Vietnam and Myanmar have a point each. Thailand tops the group with 3 points.

The Azkals will have to brave Vietnam alone however, since their head coach Michael Weiss is suspended following the Thailand game wherein he appeared to throw a ball on a Thai player on the floor.
