    PH Azkals kiss World Cup bid goodbye after horror 1-0 home loss to Yemen

    Nov 12, 2015

    THE Philippine men’s football team kissed its World Cup bid goodbye as it bowed to Yemen, 1-0, in their qualifying match on Thursday night at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.

    The Azkals failed to capitalize on numerous golden chances, before surrendering a late goal against a lower-ranked opponent to get eliminated from contention before a disappointed home crowd.

    Ahmed Al-Sarori spelled the biggest difference, finding the back of the net from close range seven minutes before stoppage time as Yemen, already out of the running, lived up to being a spoiler with its first win in six matches in Group H.

    Al-Sarori's goal was the first for Yemen in this qualifiers.

    The Filipino booters still have two matches remaining that are now left without bearing.
