Azkals' Phil Younghusband sings Grow Old with You @L'Fisher

Azkals team is set to go to Japan today, March 7, for the most important part of its preparation for the second leg of its AFC Challenge Cup qualifying duel with Mongolia in Ulan Bator, Mongolia. Previously, the Azkals held a high-altitude camp in Baguio City, and are now scheduled to train in a facility of the Japan Football Association just outside Tokyo in an appeal to help them adapt to the freezing conditions in Ulan Bator.

Scarcely two weeks before the match, Azkals' team manager Dan Palami said the team was 80 percent prepared for the game with the Mongolians, whom the Azkals defeated, 2-0, in the first leg in Bacolod last February 9. Palami believes that under normal conditions, the Azkals can effortlessly beat Mongolia. He said that the training in Japan will be necessary in evaluating the team’s chances of succeeding to the group qualifying in Myanmar starting March 21.
