Azkals, Singapore settle for scoreless draw in Suzuki Cup opener
BOCAUE, Philippines – The Philippine national football team held the visiting Singapore to a goalless draw in the opening day of the AFF Suzuki Cup at the Philippine Sports Stadium on Saturday, November 19, 2016.
The fans were treated to a physical game especially during the second half as Singapore had to defend the home team with only ten players on board, due to the issuance of a red card to Hafiz Abu Sujad in the first half.
As a result, several Singaporean players were handed out yellow cards throughout the last few minutes.
Stephen Schrock and Pika Minegeshi provided a couple of good chances in scoring a goal for the Azkals during the latter part of the game, but were denied by Singaporean goalkeeper Hassan Sunny.
The Azkals will next face Indonesia on Tuesday, November 22, 2016 in the same venue.
