The Philippine Azkals won against the Mongolian Blue Wolves (2-0) in soccer match held at the Panaad Stadium in Bacolod City last February 9, 2011.
It was my first time to watch a football game so I have to ask my brothers who are big football fans about the rules of the game. I know a lot of Filipinos do not know much about football because the Philippines is a basketball crazy nation.
Our whole family watched the games and we were screaming at the top of our lungs and clapping our hands the whole time specially when Emelio "Chieffy" Caligdong scored into the 42 minute of the game and at the score Phil Younghusband made at the last play of the game.
I really feel proud about the Philippine Azkals and I'm happy that this sport is getting some attention now in the country.
Football is a sport that Filipinos can really excel in compared to basketball. We cannot really compete in the international basketball competition because of the height limitations of Filipinos, something that is not required in football.
I hope the next game of the Azkals will be held in Manila so I can watch it live.
