Manila, Philippines - The Philippine Azkals lost to Indonesia for the 20th Time, though this time it was just in a Friendly Match that happened last Wednesday at the Manahan Stadium in Sukarta, Indonesia. The Indons beat the Azkals via 2-0.
Coach Hans Michael Weiss seized the opportunity to let his younger players (Porteria, Angeles, and Aguinaldo) play valuable minutes in this Friendly match against the 2010 AFF Suzuki Cup champions just so they can be able to get invaluable experience.
Meanwhile, Mark Hartmann was the only Azkal player who got a rare chance to score a goal via a header off James Younghusband’s cross in the opening half, but unfortunately it didn’t went in.
Greg Nwokolo and Muhammad Roby were the ones who scored the 2 goals for the Indons, in the 31st and 66th minute respectively.
