Philippine Azkals vs Tajikistan: The challenge is on for our national squad for the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup to be held at Kathmandu, Nepal.
The Philippine Azkals, as they are more popularly known, left the country two days after their FIFA-sanctioned friendly match against Malaysia at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium. The game ended in a 1-1 draw.
The Azkals team intentionally arrived in Nepal days before the opening of the sports event in order to make themselves more familiar with the cold temperature in the high altitude state. They also reserved for themselves a few more days of practice.

This outing of the Philippines in this tournament is also being watched closely as some members of the team are involved in a sexual harassment controversy that had happened hours before their game against Malaysia. The two Azkals players involved are Lexton Moy and Angel Guirado.
For their match in their group stage, the Azkals are going to face a tough team in Tajikistan with their game scheduled on March 13.
