U-23 Azkals Get Chance to Prove Mettle in 2015 SEA Games

MANILA, Philippines – It looks like the Philippine Under-23 Azkals will get their shot at the football competitions of the Southeast Asian Games in Singapore.No less than the chef de mission of the Phl delegation, Julian Camacho, has said that the Philippine Olympic Committee's SEA Games management committee (mancomm) is opening the doors to the Pinoy booters' return stint in the biennial games after getting dropped from the contingent in 2013.“There are eight or nine players from the Azkals who are under-23 and maganda naman performance nila (they performed well) so bibigyan natin sila ng chance (we’ll give them a chance),” Camacho, who also heads the mancomm that screens the contingent, said.“In a sense, they’ve not been joining the SEA Games (in many editions), so we’ll give them the chance to prove themselves in Singapore,” Camacho further said.

The Pinoy booters missed out on the action in the 2013 SEA Games in Myanmar after failing to get the nod from the POC to join the delegation.For the Singapore joust, the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) said it is ready to prepare and send a competitive team which will be beefed up by the likes of Azkals mainstays Amani Aguinaldo and Daisuke Sato.The U-22 squad will have its hands full in the 2015 conclave, though, especially with the core of the squad that ruled the Asean Football Federation (AFF) Suzuki Cup last year carrying the fight for Thailand.The Phl last participated in the SEAG in 2011 in Indonesia, placing sixth and last in Group B with three points on one win and four losses.Prior to the Singapore SEAG, PFF president Nonong Araneta said the U-22 Azkals will hold training camps and compete in the qualifiers for the 2016 Asian Football Confederation U-23 championship this March in Thailand.The U-22 Azkals are in Group G with North Korea, host Thailand and Cambodia, hoping to land in the Top 2 to boost their chance of making it to the final round where three berths to the Rio Olympics will be at stake.

PFF Draws Tough Buildup for SEA Games Bound U-23 Azkals

http://www.philstar.com/sports/2015/01/ ... nomobile=1

Updated January 8, 2015 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - After missing the action in the last Southeast Asian Games, the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) said it is prepared to send a “competitive team” to this year’s SEAG in Singapore.PFF president Nonong Araneta said a training program for the Under-22 team is being lined up in the buildup for the June 5-16 SEA Games.“Our U-22 team will first compete in the AFC U-23 Championship qualification this March and then naka-set na ang training (training has been set) because this will hopefully, if we’re allowed to join the SEA Games, will be the same team we’ll send to the SEA Games,” Araneta said in the TV program “The Score” on ABS-CBN Sports+Action.He stressed that the federation is serious in sending the U-22 side, which is expected to be bannered by Azkals stalwarts who meet the age limit of 23, like Amani Aguinaldo and Daisuke Sato.“If we prepare right, we’ll have a competitive team. I can’t promise the gold medal but I promise that I will prepare them the best way I can. We should consider that,” he said.The PFF couldn’t field an entry in the 2013 edition of the SEAG after failing to get the go-signal from the Philippine Olympic Committee.

For the Singapore joust, however, the Olympic body is more receptive to the PFF’s bid to enter the competition.“Gusto namin sila isama. Maganda ang showing nila ngayon (We want football in the Philippine delegation, they have a good record now),” chef de mission Julian Camacho told The STAR.Araneta said participating in the biennial SEA Games is part of long-term efforts to gear up the youngsters for bigger tournaments in the future.“We’re already exposing them because they need exposure. Take for example Thailand that won the Suzuki Cup. This was their team for the SEA Games. In-expose na nila sa (they sent them first to the) SEA Games (2013), lumaban sila sa (then they competed in the) Asian Cup (qualifiers) before they went to the Suzuki Cup,” Araneta said. – Olmin Leyba“Actually, iyung pag-join namn is not just to win, but you have to have something in the end in mind; ano ba ng gusto natin (What do we target in the end)? We just don’t join the SEA Games just to get the gold medal but also for exposure of the team (for future competitions like what Thailand is doing),” he added.
