Team manager Dan Palami hopes new coach re-energizes Azkals

With new head coach Terry Butcher set to join the Azkals as they begin preparations for the upcoming 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup and the 2019 AFC Asian Cup, there are already expectations from the Philippine National Men’s Football Team moving forward. And from team manager Dan Palami’s side, he expects the former England skipper to re-energize the Pinoy squad as they get ready for what’s set to be a crucial pair of tournaments in the coming months. “I expect him to bring new energy, his leadership when he was a player and as a coach in his clubs will be infectious and will give the players the high that’s needed, rejuvenate them and get them to prove themselves in the competitions that are about to come.” Palami told ABS-CBN Sports. (READ ALSO: Azkals captain Phil Younghusband excited to learn from new coach) The arrival of Butcher signals the end of the Thomas Dooley era for the Azkals.  Dooley, who handled the Philippine National Team from 2014 to 2018, steered the Azkals to their biggest win yet, one over Tajikistan to secure their spot in the AFC Asian Cup for the first time in Philippine football history, in his final match with the team.  And while there was nothing but gratitude for what Dooley did with the team during his four year stint, Palami explains that changes needed to be made, even coming off the heels of the team's biggest victory in history.  "Believe you me, when everything seems to be looking up, then you have to prepare for that, because you usually see a lot of downs, but the good thing is, we’re up and down, up and down, but the general trend is going up." "We wanna make sure that that continues and even bring it up some more, and that’s why sometimes we have to make changes, it’s a catalyst that will make us perform better, I hope, because historically, that’s how it’s been. Everytime we make changes, people criticize it, people get anxious, but at the end of the day, we have shown that our perfomance has gotten better." Palami added.  Later this year, the Azkals will be participating in the Suzuki Cup, and it could be a shot at redemption after having crashed out of the semifinals in the tournament’s previous staging back in 2016. Barely two months after the Suzuki Cup, the Azkals embark on their most important journey yet, as they kick off their AFC Asian Cup campaign, the highest level they’ve ever been on. Being grouped with South Korea, China, and Kyrgyzstan in Group C, it’s definitely an uphill battle for the Azkals, given that the country is on the lower tier of the pool in terms of rankings. Palami says that defying the odds is nothing new to Butcher, who back in 2009 to 2013, took a relegated Inverness club back to the Scottish Premier League. “Let’s face it, the Philippines is not the most palatable country to coach, but I think with Coach Terry, he has been in similarly-situated conditions, although in club levels. When he was in Inverness, he achieved a great deal with such a small club with such a small budget.” “It’s kind of inspiring, it parallels the journey of the Azkals, na parang maybe he could do the same, and he’s shown that kind of spirit throughout these years, since that time. I’m looking forward to him sharing that experience and bringing that experience dito sa atin.” Palami added. With a new coach, a new coaching staff, and new beginnings, this could be the start of something grand for the Azkals. For Palami and the rest of the squad, it’s nothing but excitement for the coming months. “I think everybody’s excited. We look forward to the tandem of Terry and [Senior Football Adviser] Scott [Cooper] doing a lot for Philippine football and the Azkals.".....»»

Football: Azkals fighting for redemption, recognition in upcoming tournaments

As important as the first quarter of 2018 was for the Philippine Azkals, the coming months are definitely even more crucial. With the introduction of former England skipper Terry Butcher as the national team’s new head coach, the road to redemption and recognition begins. "The next 12 months is huge for Philippine football. If we can have success in the Suzuki Cup and the Asian Cup, that will be huge strides in the development of football here in the Philippines." said Azkals skipper Phil Younghusband. Redemption is the goal for the upcoming 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup, which kicks off in November. The last time that the Azkals participated in the biennial Southeast Asian tournament, it was definitely one to forget. For the first time since 2008, the Philippines failed to qualify for the Suzuki Cup semifinals, snapping a streak of three straight Final Four appearances. This year, the Azkals once again find themselves grouped with Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore, just like in 2016. “We have the same group as in the 2016 Suzuki Cup, so it’s a chance for us to redeem ourselves and do better.” said Azkals team manager Dan Palami.      “[It's] the same draw we had two years ago when we didn’t qualify,” said Younghusband. “We know it will be tough and it’s a challenge for us.” The Fil-British striker added that in order to establish themselves as a force to reckon with in Southeast Asian football, teams like Thailand and Indonesia, and Singapore are ones that they need to take care of. “If we want to continue to help the growth of Philippine football, these are teams we will have to play and win against.” A successful AFF Suzuki Cup campaign will also definitely give the Azkals the much-needed momentum as they begin their AFC Asian Cup campaign, their first in team history. On the biggest stage that they’ve been on, their goal is to be recognized as a legitimate contender in Asian football. “The Asian Cup draw is a difficult group, but there are other groups that are more tough. It will be great to get the experience of playing a World Cup side to see what level we are at.” Younghusband said. In the Asian Cup, which kicks off in January of 2019, the Azkals find themselves grouped with South Korea, China, and Kyrgyzstan. All three teams are ranked higher than the Philippines. And while it’s bound to be an uphill battle for the Azkals, Younghusband is hopeful that they can come up with some surprises. “China will be very difficult, but we played them last year so we know what to expect. I would rather play a team we have played before. Kyrgyzstan, we played twice recently and had good victories so it should be interesting. Hopefully, we can claim a best third spot or even surprise a few people and claim second spot.”  Much like the captain, Palami acknowledges that the Asian Cup will indeed be a tough go, but going through tough opponents is the only way for the Azkals to prove themselves among Asia’s elite, and that’s what Palami wants to see from the Pinoy side. “For the Asian Cup, it will be a tough group, but I think if we do it right, we can pull off one of the biggest surprises in the tournament, and that’s what we aim to do.” “We don’t want to be mere participants, but we want to be true competitors in the Asian Cup.” Palami added......»»

Neil Etheridge makes historic Premier League debut

Philippine Azkals goalkeeper Neil Etheridge made history Saturday by becoming the first Filipino and first Southeast Asian player to play in the English Premier League. Etheridge got the start in his EPL debut as his club team Cardiff City FC figured in a season-opening 0-2 loss to A.F.C. Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium in Bournemouth, England.  It was a rocky start for Etheridge after conceding a goal in the 24th minute courtesy of a Ryan Fraser strike.  Ten minutes later, Etheridge got to show off what he's capable of doing as he came up with a fantastic save of Callum Wilson's penalty attempt to keep the Cardiff City deficit at just one goal.  Wilson would have the last laugh however, as he did wind up doubling Bournemouth's lead in injury time.  The @premierleague's first ever Filipino and Southeast Asian... 🇵🇭@Neil38Etheridge 👏#BOUCAR #CityAsOne 🔵⚽️🔵⚽️ pic.twitter.com/SNEcWpQbAo — Cardiff City FC (@CardiffCityFC) August 11, 2018 It was Cardiff City's return to the top tier of English Football after spending the last couple of seasons playing in the English Football League Championship.  In the 2017-2018 EFL Championship season, Cardiff City earned promotion into the EPL after finishing with the second-best record.  Up next for Etheridge and Cardiff City is a showdown against Newcastle next Saturday. .....»»

Azkals announce Terry Butcher as new head coach

The Philippine Men's National Football team has announced the appointment of former English skipper Terry Butcher as the Azkals' new head coach. The coaching change comes just months after the Azkals achieved arguably their biggest victory, qualifying for the 2019 AFC Asian Cup with a win over Tajikistan at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium in Manila. Butcher will be replacing Thomas Dooley, who served as the Azkals' mentor from 2014 to 2018. An experienced manager and former player with a long and storied career, Butcher represented the English national team from 1980 to 1990, which included 77 caps and three World Cup appearances. In 1990, Butcher began his managing career, which lasted until 2015, last handling Newport County AFC. More new names will be joining Butcher on the Azkals coaching staff, as former player Chris Greatwich will be coming on board as a coaching assistant, while Steve Marcells was named as the goalkeeping coach. Ireland's Scott Cooper will also be joining the Azkals as the team's Senior Football Adviser. Cooper is coming off a stint as Thai club Police Tero's manager. The changes come in time for the Azkals' preparations for the upcoming AFF Suzuki Cup later this year, and the AFC Asian Cup in January of 2019......»»

Azkals captain Phil Younghusband excited to learn from new coach

Thursday evening, as the 2018 FIFA World Cup commenced in Russia, there was also a new beginning back home in the Philippines, with the hopes of one day also qualifying for the biggest stage in football. With around five months to go before their next major tournament, the AFF Suzuki Cup, the Philippine Azkals announced a brand new coaching staff, led by former England captain and new Philippine National Team head coach Terry Butcher. Butcher, who will be replacing Thomas Dooley, donned England’s colors for a decade, which included 77 caps and three World Cup appearances. And as a new era begins in Philippine football, the Azkals’ own team captain was nothing short of excited to be able to play for a compatriot of sorts. “Very proud, I’m looking forward to learning, being educated by someone who’s played at such a high level.” the Fil-British star told the media at Thursday’s press launch. “Other than the England team in 1966, he was part of the team that got the furthest, making it into the semifinals, unfortunately losing to Germany on penalties, he’s played at the highest level against the best players in the world, he would know what to do when coming up against high level players.” For Younghusband, who was born and grew up in England, being able to learn from someone who he admired as a child is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. “More than anything I’m excited to learn from him and be educated, especially from someone who I grew up watching.” From a personal standpoint, impressing the new guy calling the shots is a must for Younghusband. Having seen a number of coaches come and go, the team captain admits that familiarity is the challenge everytime someone new takes over the reins of control. “I think it’s not knowing, you’re wondering what the coach is thinking about you. Obviously you want to impress him, you want to show him what a good player you are, but there’s always that doubt in your head, does he think I’m a good player? Does he know I’m a good player? Does he know about the things I’ve done well in the past?” “That little bit of doubt can creep in, but it can work the other way as well. It can be a fresh new start, I can show the new coach what a good player I am. I’m sure that would be the case for most of us.” Younghusband added. With roughly five months to go before the 2018 AFF Suzuki Cup and seven months to go before the 2019 AFC Asian Cup, it’ll be time for the Azkals to get back to work real soon. According to team manager Dan Palami, training camp begins in Bahrain this September. For Younghusband, chemistry shouldn’t be too much of an issue, especially with Coach Terry and Senior Football Adviser Scott Cooper coming in. “Pretty much most of the players are the same, obviously there will be a few new players coming in, but the chemistry within the team will be the same.” Younghusband said. “With the sort of level that Scott [Cooper] and Terry have coached at, they’re used to coming into teams  and making sure that the teams jell quickly and understand each other and understand their way of coaching.”.....»»

Nearing 50 international goals, Phil Younghusband more focused on getting the W against Tajikistan

During the first half the Philippine Azkals’ International Friendly Match against Fiji, Misagh Bahadoran was fouled inside the box, setting team captain Phil Younghusband up for a penalty attempt that ultimately gave him is 49th international goal. Already the nation’s leading goal scorer, the Fil-Brit striker is closing in on another career milestone: 50 international goals, and the historic could very well come against Tajikistan in arguably the Philippines’ biggest football game in history as the Azkals try to break into the AFC Asian Cup tournament for the first time ever. “I’m very thankful to my teammates for getting me the penalty. The first goal is always important because it breaks the deadlock and it means that the opposition has to come out and score a goal.” Younghusband said about the 29th minute penalty against Fiji, Thursday night. While Younghusband isn’t hiding the fact that he’s out for number fifty, the Azkals skipper isn’t taking his eyes off the bigger prize on the table, and that’s a ticket to the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. “Obviously a goal of mine is to get to 50, but the most important thing is the team wins, and if that happens in the next game or in ten games’ time, then as long as we’re in the Asian Cup, then I’ll be happy.” Currently at the top of Group F in the Group Stage of the qualifiers with nine points off two wins and three draws, the Azkals are in a good position to seal the deal, and a draw on Tuesday night would do the trick. Of course, the Azkals aren’t leaving anything to chance, and getting the maximum three points against Tajikistan is the top priority. The best case scenario: Phil hits 50 and the Azkals get the win. “Yeah, I hope I score in the next game. As I said, whether it comes in the next game or in ten games’ time, as long as we’re in the Asian Cup, for me that’s the big goal, for the team and for Philippine football.” Getting to 50 international conversions puts Younghusband up there with the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, and more. He’ll also be the first Filipino to do so. “Whatever happens, as long as we’re in the Asian Cup, whether our goal keeper scores the goal or whether I score the goal, it doesn’t matter as long as we’re in the Asian Cup.”   Catch the Azkals as they take on Tajikistan in their final 2019 AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers match on Tuesday, March 27th, LIVE on LIGA channel 86 and LIGA HD channel 183.

History within reach as Azkals face Tajikistan with Asian Cup qualification on the line

The Philippine Azkals are on the brink of making history and could be ninety minutes away from doing so as they close out their 2019 AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers campaign against Tajikistan on Tuesday, March 27th at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium. A win or a least a draw will send the Azkals to the AFC Asian Cup tournament for the first time in Philippine football history. Sitting at the top of Group F, the Azkals started strong, picking up back-to-back victories in the Group Stages against Nepal and Tajikistan, creating early separation from the field. In their last three matches however, the Philippine side managed three draws, twice against Yemen and once against Nepal. Still, the Azkals find themselves in prime position to advance to the Asian Cup tournament, and while a stalemate would be enough, it’s the maximum three points that they’re after. “This is a game that we have to win because we want to win our home games. We wanna win every game. It’s important for us to beat a team that we’ve beaten before, and we haven’t lost a game yet in the tournament, so we wanna do the same, we don’t wanna lose the game at home.” said Azkals head coach Thomas Dooley during the pre-match press conference. “Our focus is winning the game. If it comes out as a tie, it’s okay, but we’re trying to win our game.” Coming off a 3-2 win over Fiji in an International Friendly last Thursday, the Azkals, who are coming off a long layoff, have now found their footing, and team captain Phil Younghusband believes that the team is confident heading into the match. “It’s a big game tomorrow. The players understand that. The team understands that. We’re looking forward to the game and we’re going to the game with good confidence but also very wary of how good Tajikistan are.” The visitors will need a victory to keep their Asian Cup dreams alive. Aside from the Azkals making history, Fil-British foward is also on-pace to make some history of his own. Already the leading scorer for the Philippine National Team, Younghusband is one away from reaching the 50-goal mark and would be the first Filipino to do so. Reaching the half-century mark puts Younghusband up there with the likes of international football greats such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Ronaldo, and many others. For the Azkals’ skipper however, getting the all-important win is what matters. “The 50th can wait for another time, the most important thing is we win the game. Obviously it would be perfect if I could score the 50th and we win the game, but the most important thing is the win because that would take us to another level in the Asian Cup.”   With a win, the Azkals will improve to 12 points and finish first in Group F, securing a spot in the 2019 Asian Cup. With a draw, they finish with ten points and are assured of a top-two finish in Group F, which will also secure a spot in the 2019 Asian Cup. A loss and the Azkals finish with nine points, while Tajikistan finishes with ten points. Should this be the case, The Azkals will need to hope for a Yemen loss in their final match against Nepal to be assured of a second-place finish in Group F and qualification to the 2019 Asian Cup.   Catch the Azkals as they take on Tajikistan in their final 2019 AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers match on Tuesday, March 27th, LIVE on LIGA channel 86 and LIGA HD channel 183.

For Thomas Dooley, focus falls on Azkals win before anything else

On the brink of making Philippine football history, the Philippine Azkals find themselves about to play arguably the biggest game in team history as they take on Tajikistan at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium on Tuesday, March 22nd. A win, or at the very least, a draw, will send the Philippines to the AFC Asian Cup tournament for the first time since the tournament’s inception in 1956. Taking everything into consideration, the Azkals find themselves in a very good position to clinch their spot in the prestigious tournament, being that they’re currently sitting at the top of Group F, two ahead of Tajikistan or Nepal, and that they’ve beaten Tajikistan before, on enemy ground. And while it would be easy to rest on these and just shoot for a draw, the Azkals just aren’t in the business of settling for just barely getting in. On Tuesday, against the visiting Tajikistan side - who in turn need a win - the Azkals are out to get maximum points. “This is a game that we have to win because we want to win our home games. We wanna win every game. It’s important for us to beat a team that we’ve beaten before, and we haven’t lost a game yet in the tournament, so we wanna do the same, we don’t wanna lose the game at home.” Azkals head coach Thomas Dooley said during Monday’s pre-game press conference. “It’s gonna be very difficult, there are no easy games in football, and that’s a strong team, they’re fast, they’re technical, they fight, they showed that in the second half over there, so we have to be prepared, we have to be focused. Our focus is winning the game. If it comes out as a tie, it’s okay, but we’re trying to win our game.” Being a win away from making it to the biggest tournament that the Azkals have been on, it’s easy for the players to get lost in the sheer magnitude of Tuesday night’s match, and Dooley wants his boys to take their minds off just how important this match is and treat it as any other must-win match. “We’re trying to take away what everybody’s talking about, how big this game is. The outcome, maybe, is big, but the game is not bigger than all the other games. We play against a very strong team, Tajikistan is a very good team, so we need to win our game, we wanna win our game.” Knowing what’s at stake and knowing just how big this match is could get to the players and the pressure of the situation could lead to mistakes and collapses on the pitch, and that’s what Dooley would like to avoid. Instead, the former US National Team skipper would like his players to keep the focus on their respective roles on the pitch and make getting the win the primary goal. “We want to be focused on what we did, we're focused on what we’re trying to accomplish in the game, what everybody has to do defensively, offensively, to beat the opponent, to beat a single player in their team and the whole team, Tajikistan, that’s what the focus should be.” “If we’re thinking too much about how big this game is, everybody may be under pressure and you feel the pressure too much, but you shouldn’t. You should be focused on the what we have to do, on the field for 90 minutes, and then after that, we can talk about what we achieved.” Dooley added. While it’s easier said than done, the Azkals will need to make sure that they’re phyisically and of course mentally prepared as they get said to play the most important ninety minutes of their lives as members of the Philippine National Team.   Catch the Azkals as they take on Tajikistan in their final 2019 AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers match on Tuesday, March 27th, LIVE on LIGA channel 86 and LIGA HD channel 183.
