Philippines U22 6-1 Timor Leste U22: Tragedy for Azkals as they collapsed by last-minute goal

With the goal of winning very heavily to keep the hope, the Philippines U22 entered the match urgently and soon opened the score in the 3rd minute by captain Schrock. The pressure continued to be maintained by the home team, as they finished the first half with 1 more goal. At this time, U22 Cambodia and U22 Malaysia are still in a 0-0 draw match.

The big change came in the second half, and it was a surprise. Nobody expected the name to rise among the 3 teams to be Cambodia. In the second half, Cambodia U22 scored 3 consecutive goals, submerging U22 Malaysia with a score of 3-1.

Whereas in the second half, the Philippines also got 4 goals to close the match with a score of 6-1, but their effort was useless as Cambodia suddenly beat Malaysia. Philippines U22 also conceded a poor goal in the last minute, which led them to eliminate due to worse goal difference than Cambodia U22.

Thus, despite the great victory of 6-1 against Timor Leste U22, the Philippines U22 still had to say goodbye to SEA Games 30th.

Time: 16:00 (GMT+8) on December 4th

Venue: Binan Football Stadium

‎‎Competition: SEA Games 30th men's football

Defeating Malaysia U22 makes the Philippines U22 have a big advantage to advance to the semi-finals. With four points in three games, one more victory against Timor Leste U22 will help them rise to the second position while waiting for other matches' results.

To fortify the chance to qualify the group stage, Filipino players have to score as many goals as possible to improve the goal difference.

When the Philippines U22 still tries to raise hope at SEA Games, Timor Leste U22 members currently have no motivation to play. This is the first team in Group A eliminated at the competition.

Their players are too weak to resist other opponents. They conceded five goals in the first match against Cambodia U22, then they let Myanmar players score three times more in the second game.

With the difference at the level between two teams, a victory for the Philippines U22 will likely happen. Moreover, with an advantage as the host nation, they can gain more confidence from the supporters.

It will not be a surprise if the Philippines U22 humiliates Timor Leste U22 with many goals. This is the only hope for the Azkals to find a way to play at the semi-finals as they aim to achieve.

Philippines U22 vs Timor Leste U22 possible lineups:
