LEGEND'S WISHES: Ronaldo hopes Philippines U22 to win SEA Games

Speaking before the final match of the Philippines U22 in the group stage, Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima sent a message to the Azkals.

"Hi, I am Ronaldo. I wish Azkals team good luck, so I hope you can win the tournament. Goodbye", said Brazilian football legend.

Many Pinoy fans thanked "O Phenomenon" for his wishes, but it is very difficult for Philippines U22 to do that.

Before playing the last match, the young Azkals currently stand in the fourth position. They need to score at least five goals into Timor Leste U22's net while waiting for the result of the game between Cambodia U22 and Malaysia U22.

Moreover, if the Philippines U22 advance to the semi-finals, their opponent will be the leading team in Group B. At the moment, that place is being competed by three very strong teams namely Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand.

As a result, the young Azkals do not have many chances to achieve the gold medal of men's football at the SEA Games. But they will fight with all of their strength to do as Ronaldo wishes for them.

At present, Ronaldo is the majority owner of La Liga club Real Valladolid. Last year, he spent 30 million euros to acquire a 51 percent controlling stake in the club.

"O Phenomenon" believed in the future, Real Valladolid can aim to great achievements like Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.
