philippine azkals demolish bangladesh 3-0, makes history, guirado scores 2, araneta 1
for awhile, we entertained doubts about the azkals bringing us to footba
ll heaven. they took us to paradise when they placed themselves in out consciousness, made a lot of us go crazy over them thengave us a large dose of hope. then the little atomic bombs that pulled us
down to earth.
we lost sleep and prayed harder as they played bangladesh today. it is a game that is now or never.
well, thy delivered – they beat bangladesh 3-0 and the azkals put the philippines at the gates of football heaven.
it did not help any of the tension and excitement we had going into the bangladesh game when we were told a certain angel guirado, a spanish-filipino is the last minute replacement for phil younghusband, a key striker of the team who is on the injured list.
but guirado did not disappoint, in fact he was the hero in today’s game with 2 points to his name. so now we are no longer worried and in a celebratory mood. job well done, azkals. arf! arf!
