Destroying Guam, Philippines have the first 3 points in 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying

After the humiliating defeat on the first day of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, the Philippines team marched to Guam with great determination, and that determination helped them soon have goals.

Right in the 7th minute, the Southeast Asian team had a goal to take the lead by Angel Guirado, starting a rain of jubilant goals. Just 5 minutes after the opening goal, Patricj Reichelt doubled the gap for the Philippines.

2 early goals helped the representative of Southeast Asian football to play very comfortable, while the host Guam also has nothing to lose. The attacking game was created by the two teams for the rest of the first half, but the two sides did not once successfully take advantage of the opportunity.

Entering the second half, continued an open game created by Guam and the Philippines. Hopefully coming to the home team after they had a goal in the 66th minute on penalties, but that's all Guam can do.

The Philippines once again pushed the squad up to attack, and Shrock and John-Patrick StrauB easily scored 2 more goals at the end of the match, completing a 4-1 victory for the Southeast Asian team. With this result, the Philippines had the first 3 points in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

********************************************************************

According to the draw result, the Philippines football team is located in Group A with the Maldives, Guam, Syria and China. Because the Maldives and Guam are too weak, and China is on a decline, in theory, the Philippines can completely compete in one of the top 2 positions. However, in reality, this is not a simple task for the Southeast Asian team.

The reason for saying so because Filipino football is also in a quiet period. According to statistics, the last time the Philippines triumph song was nearly a year ago, that was when they beat Timor Leste 3-2 in the group stage of the AFF Cup 2018. Even, in the past 7 matches, the Philippines lost, part large with a gap ratio. According to Asia, the Azkals have won the last 3 matches.

Located in the same group with very strong opponents like China or Syria, Guam does not seem to have the opportunity to compete in one of the top two places, so the goal of teachers and coach Karl Dodd is to avoid becoming a team. The ball paved the road and had to take on heavy failures.

It will not be surprising if coach Karl Dodd lets Guam play attack in the next match because the Philippines does not have a significant difference in professional quality compared to the visitors.

Guam vs Philippines possible lineups:

Guam: Dallas Jaye, Marlon Evans, DeLaGarza, Shawn Nicklaw, Shane Malcolm, Mark Chargualaf, Ian Mariano, Isiah Lagutang, Marcus Lopez, Devan Mendiola, Jason Cunliffe.

Philippines: Michael Falkesgaard, Luke Woodland, Stephan Palla, Álvaro Silva, Patrick Reichelt, Daisuke Sato, Mike Ott, Kevin Ingreso, Curt Dizon, Stephan Schröck, Javier Patino.
