Philippines Squad For AFC Asian Cup Qualifiers Match Vs Nepal
November 9, 2017


The quest for a Philippines in the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 continues.

The Philippine Men’s National Team face Nepal in Match Day 5 of the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 Qualifiers on 14 November 2017 at the ANFA Complex in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The match is crucial since a win over Nepal will ensure the Philippines’ qualification to the AFC Asian Cup 2019 final round for the very first time and with a game to spare.

The Philippines sits on top of Group F with eight (8) points while Nepal is in last place with one (1) point.

The Azkals began their Asian Cup campaign with a convincing 4-1 win against Nepal last 28 March 2017 at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium in Manila. Phil Younghusband scored twice in the match while Iain Ramsay and Javier Patiño scored a goal each.

23 players have been called up for the Nepal match. Former Philippine Under-22 player and Global Cebu forward Paolo Salenga and Ceres Negros forward Joshua Dutosme earned their first call up to the team. Kaya FC Makati midfielder Marwin Angeles is back with the national team after a stint in 2014. Misagh Bahadoran returns to the squad after missing out in the draw against Yemen last 10 October. Patiño, Amani Aguinaldo, Manny Ott, and Luke Woodland are still out of the squad due to injuries.
