    Draw with football hotbed Argentina enough to pull Philippine boys to Street Child World Cup quarters

    Apr 4, 2014

    THE Philippines drew with Argentina, 1-1, to earn a quarterfinal seat in the 2014 Street Child World Cup in Rio De Janeiro.

    Gawad Kalinga’s Avin scored the match-tying goal to assure the Filipino booters of a slot in the final eight where they will face Pakistan.

    Complete names of the players are being withheld due to child protection policy.

    “It was a heated match,” said team leader and head coach Roy Moore. “Such a dramatic game. Argentina wanted to end their tournament on a high note and probably played their best game against us.”

    Earlier, the Philippine girls team also made it to the quarterfinals with a 3-1 victory over El Salvador. The Filipinas will face England next in the event that gives opportunity to street children through football.
