Syria vs Philippines match information

Time: 22:00 (GMT+8) on November 19th

Venue: Maktoum Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Stadium

‎‎Competition: 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier (AFC)

Being the only Southeast Asian team drawn in Group A, the Philippines is facing problems on the way to compete for second place. In theory, they can take this position from China if they gain 3 points in the match against Syria.

However, it seems an impossible mission for coach Goran Milojevic and the Philippines' players. When two teams faced each other in September, the Philippines lost by 2-5 though they played at their home ground.

In the case of the Syria team, they have to play in the U.A.E instead of their country because of security concerns from the Syrian Civil War. But, no teams in Group a can stop the victory streak of Syria at present.

Currently, they have 4 consecutive winning matches in the World Cup qualification, which helps them dominate Group A by 5 points more than China and the Philippines.

Moreover, Syria also defeated China in the previous match, making Marcello Lippi resign his managerial role at the China team after that. It shows the Syria team is having a high spirit as well as stable form.

Therefore, the chance for the Philippines to gain any point in this match is extremely low. In the worst scenario, they can be easily defeated like before.

Syria vs Philippines possible lineup:

Syria: Ibrahim Almeh, Hussein Jwayed, Ahmad Al Salih, Omar Midani, Mouaiad Al Ajaan, Mahmoud Al Mawas, Mazen Alees, Omar Kharbin, Kamel Hamisha, Shadi Al Hamwi, Omar Al Soma.
