Philippines to win AFF Cup?

Don't be surprised. Even national coach K.Rajagobal did not discount the possibility.

Beware of the Filipinos - said Rajagobal as pubished in today's Mailsport.

After all look at their line-up. They have Fulham goalkeeper Neil Etheridge (pic), FSV Frankfurt defender Dennis Cagara and Germany-based players Denis Wolf of FC Madgeburg and SpVgg Greuther Furth’s Stephan Schrock. There's also former Chelsea youth and reserve team midfielder James Younghusband.

After all, the Philippines were the semifinalists of the 2010 edition.

"Have you seen Thailand play lately? I was amazed and thanked my lucky stars they weren't playing such a brand of football at the previous AFF Cup," admitted Rajagobal.

There's also Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia.

Also, Rajagobal stressed - yet again - that his target remains qualifying for the 2015 Asian Cup.

"I am not making up excuses. We will know where the team stands by next year. I know when to leave and if I have failed, I will leave."

HD says: It will be an exciting tournament come year end.


  1. The main target for Harimau Malaya should be winning AFF cup 2012 and qualifying for the 2015 Asian cup. No excuse please.

    For Harimau Muda, the target should be qualify for next Asian olympic qualification.
