It was sweet victory for the 127th ranked Philippines when they defeated 106th ranked Bahrain in the first round of Group F Asian qualifiers of the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. It was the Filipinos’ first victory against the stronger Bahrainis in three meetings.
Next stop will be 165th ranked Yemen. May the Philippines become victorious again in its second Group F match.
Congratulations Azkals – Team Philippines!
