MANILA, Philippines - For the second time in a month the Philippine National Men's Football Team was held to a scoreless draw against Malaysia. The second outing between the two teams took place on Sunday, April 27 at the Cebu City Sports Center in Cebu as a tuneup for the Asian Football Confederation Challenge Cup in May.
