As part of their Asian Tour, Major League Soccer (MLS) champion, LA Galaxy is now stepping on the soil of the Philippines to face the country’s Philippine Azkals. It is just going to be a friendly match but both teams promised to give each other a hard time.
LA Galaxy just had a tough match in Indonesia at the game finished with 1-0. “We expect the game here to be exactly the same [with the game in Indonesia]. We know that there’s some talented players here. We expect a very difficult game,” says Beckham.
Team Azkals is a group composed mainly of Filipino mestizos who came from different foreign leagues. Pure Filipino and co-captian Chieffy Caligdong will be leading the game along with the strong striker Fil-Brit Phil Younghusband. He said that the Azkals will be employing a more defensive strategy. Their Captian Ali Borromeo couldn’t play because of knee injury but would still be present for moral support. Caligdong is also thrilled of the match and even describe it as a “dream come true” match.
This is a very rare chance of the Azakals to get to face a tough and famous team that’s why so many Azkals fan will be sparing some time on December 3 to watch the game. Chris Bech, a expat in the country who is also a soccer fan will be airing the game in his resort for the visitors to witness. It is an event that someone like Chris Bech missed the most and will not hesitate to spend time with.
