This thread is for information about Azkals future friendlies whether in FIFA match days of not, tournaments they will play, future training camps, battle against foreign clubs and more before they have separate threads My thoughts, Right now other countries are now planning for their next friendlies next year. The Philippines should now also think of Azkals future friendlies
Here are the match days set by FIFA in the future:
2013 06 February Friendly match day 22-26 March International match days 04 June Friendly match day 07-11 June International match days 14-18 June International match days 14 August Friendly match day 06-10 September International match days 11-15 October International match days 15-19 November International match days
2014 05 March Friendly match day 01-09 September International match days 06-14 October International match days 10-18 November International match days
12 June - 13 July 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil (TM)* Do you think the FIFA WC in Brazil is set in FIFA match days? If Yes, then PHI should invite teams for friendlies
In a two week friendlies for 2013, they could host a tournament and invite strong teams Post your thoughts here
The AFC Asian Cup Qualification will start on February 2013 and ends on March 2014.
Philippines is NOT included in the list. PHI still an emerging nation in AFC and teams in the list are mostly developed and developing nations.
20 Teams in the list:
1. Uzbekistan 2. Qatar 3. Jordan 4. Iran 5. Iraq 6. China PR 7. Bahrain 8. Syria 9. United Arab Emirates 10. Kuwait 11. Saudi Arabia 12. Oman 13. Thailand 14. Yemen 15. Vietnam 16. Malaysia 17. Singapore 18. Indonesia 19. Lebanon 20. Hong Kong
The following matchdays have been assigned by the AFC for 2015 AFC Asian Cup qualification. As 15 October and 19 November 2013 are also the dates of the inter-confederation playoffs for 2014 FIFA World Cup, a number of alternative matchdays have been allocated.
Year 2013 Matchday 1 - 6 February Matchday 2 - 22 March Matchday 3 - 15 October Matchday 4 - 15 November Matchday 5 - 19 November 2014 Alternative - 11 January Alternative - 18 January Alternative - 25 January Matchday 6 - 5 March
Group A: 1. Jordan 2. Syria 3. Oman 4. Singapore
Group B: 1. Iran 2. Kuwait 3. Thailand 4. Lebanon
Group C: 1. Iraq 2. China PR 3. Saudi Arabia 4. Indonesia
Group D: 1. Qatar 2. Bahrain 3. Yemen 4. Malaysia
Group E: 1. Uzbekistan 2. UAE 3. Vietnam 4. Hong Kong
The Top 2 Teams each group will qualify directly to the finals. The 3rd placer each group will be fighting for 1 spot via the best 3rd placer team.To determine the best third-placed team, the following criteria are used:
1. Number of points obtained in the group matches; 2. Goal difference in the group matches; 3. Greater number of goals scored in the group matches; 4. Fewer score calculated according to the number of yellow and red cards received in the group matches; (1 point for each yellow card, 3 points for each red card as a consequence of two yellow cards, 3 points for each direct red card, 4 points for each yellow card followed by a direct red card) 5. Drawing of lots.
Philippines need to be categorized by AFC at least a developing nation so that we have 2 choices of qualifying into AFC Asian Cup.
Because of the Philippines rising in football, expect Philippines to promote to developing category soon. We could now be in the list of next AFC Asian Cup Qualification.
We can't play friendlies against the teams said above on those dates so right now, PFF should now start planning for friendlies in 2013 for Philippines.
The 2014 AFC Challenge Cup is only our key to be qualified for the AFC Asian Cup Finals.
The match days stated above are all under the FIFA match days except the alternative dates. Philippines can still play with these countries on these dates that is included in FIFA match days. Refer to FIFA match days on post above.
For 2013 Friendlies, the following countries is best available for Philippines since these countries didn't included in the list too. These countries can still enter via AFC Challenge Cup.
1. Afghanistan 2. Bangladesh 3. Bhutan 4. Brunei 5. Cambodia 6. Chinese Taipei 7. Guam 8. India 9. Kyrgyzstan 10. Laos 11. Macau 12. Maldives 13. Mongolia 14. Myanmar 15. Nepal 16. North Korea (2012 Champion. Already qualified therefore they won't participate in the 2014 edition) 17. Pakistan 18. Palestine 19. Philippines 20. Sri Lanka 21. Tajikistan 22. Turkmenistan
PHI can play these countries too but it might be difficult to invite them due to their schedule conflict as they could join other tournaments and other friendlies. These countries are now qualified for AFC Asian Cup.
1. Australia 2. Japan 3. South Korea
Aside from countries stated above, it could be better for PHI if we'll start inviting teams from other confederation to increase international exposure and respect

The countries on the back of my mind that we should have a friendly against is North Korea. I would also love to see the azkals suit up against the All Whites(New Zealand). Also against other OFC countries like New Caledonia and Solomon Islands.
"I don’t understand when people ask us how ‘Filipino’ we feel.The blood that runs through us runs through our “homegrown” teammates. Just because we were born in another place or grew up in a different country doesn’t make us less Filipino. We feel Filipino every second of our lives." -Rob Gier

Big teams that Most likely to play Phl, could be Chelsea, Real Madrid and Barcelona.. Due to YH Connection on Chelsea, Real Madrid has a youth academy and our friendly club CF Madrid who also brought signed jersey, Paulino Alcantara and Sandro Reyes on Barcelona.. My hopes ain't high but its a possibility. xD

Well it's a good start to improve their skill before taking on the AFC's top 7. Well an African Tour, now that's history for PHI as we'll take these teams for the first time. Looks like 2013 will be a good year for Azkals. Hope they could also invite African teams to play here
Next year, our neighbors will play against Middle East teams as their qualification for AFC Asian Cup. Well PHI is making plans to par with them or have better opponents than our neighbors like PHI will have a game with team in another confederation like CAF as hinted in article above.
I really hope PHI and CHN will have a game soon. These 2 countries are rivals in Far Eastern Games way back in 1910s to 1920s. I guess they could have another friendlies abroad against Middle East teams for AFC Challenge Cup - Qualifiers But could be an advantage if we were chosen as host as we are qualified directly to finals.
there are rumors speculating around that Philippines will host another friendly in cebu. this time is against Kuwait. initial date is on January maybe before Sinulog or early February. no further information yet

BoyBacolod: As long as Ricky Yanson is professional to Ceres FC and extends support to the Azkals in general (Ceres Azkals in particular) during home games, he can be PFF president in my book. Much better will be reconciling with Leo, though that idea is Farfetch'd.

BoyBacolod: Kaya fans wishing that Ricky Yanson wins the PFF presidency is akin to GMA fans wishing that Congress and President Duterte will not renew ABS-CBN's franchise.

BoyBacolod: We will wait for the basketball and volleyball ASEAN teams and then we compare their reception to that given to the football delegations, where ALL ASEAN nations participate. Now there will be foreign scrutiny in every move of PHISGOC.

BoyBacolod: DDS trolls underestimated the SEA football community. Having no prior exposure to football culture, they dismiss any and all so-called sabotages as destabilization plots, to the point that they do not support the teams, especially the women.

Passerby: That's awkwardly worded.
