Reality check

first_imgGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college A few tactical tweaks by coach Sven-Goran Eriksson did not go as planned as the Chinese overran the Azkals midfield. Manny Ott was relegated to the bench with Carlie de Murga getting a first start.Schrock took an advanced role on the left wing, while Luke Woodland played at rightback.The Azkals, however, seemed to run out of ideas when they had the ball and struggled to settle into the match, unlike in the Korea encounter where they looked comfortable soaking up the pressure, before breaking forward in numbers.Javier Patino, just like against Korea, again couldn’t find a way through the Chinese goal, after he was released by Patrick Strauss on the counterattack.“We were all very disappointed with the outcome but just to defend in a game like this is not enough,” said Schrock. “We barely created our opportunities from our side. We had one golden opportunity with Javier on the counter and that was it.”ADVERTISEMENT In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ Ginebra, TNT kick off season of chasing San Miguel Beer Japeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for Ginebra Will you be the first P16 Billion Powerball jackpot winner from the Philippines? LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. A marked man as mentioned by Eriksson before the match, Wu proved to be a cut above the rest as his well-placed effort in the 40th minute opened the scoring for the Chinese.In front of 16,000 fans, most of them Filipino workers spending their day off at Mohammed bin Zayed Stadium, another moment of magic from the Chinese striker in the 66th minute doubled the advantage, before substitute Yu Dabao cashed in on some indecision from Azkals defenders off a corner.“We knew that one of the two things we needed to before the match was that we cannot give him space, but he still finished twice unmarked. We have to do a better job in this situation,” said Schrock.Defender Daisuke Sato said the Azkals have to be physically stronger at this level after the Chinese refused to pull up on some heavy challenges during the course of the match. Sato had a swollen lip after getting hit in the first half.“You cannot switch off in these types of games, in this level we are playing now,” said Schrock.The midfielder warned his team from looking past Kyrgyzstan, a newcomer in the tournament, which the Azkals have beaten twice two years ago.“We cannot overlook anyone in this group especially now that Kyrgyzstan has a chance to advance to the next round. Like I said, it’s a final. We have more time together and work something out for this game and we will take the challenge.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history Phil Younghusband shrugs off the challenge from Wu Xi. —CONTRIBUTED PHOTO/Ryan LimABU DHABI—The Philippines left this city tired and disappointed after a heavy 3-0 defeat to China last Friday night that left its hopes of reaching the next round of the AFC Asian Cup hanging by a thread.Getting a grim reality check on the level of competition they are facing, the Azkals were punished by a sharp and incisive Chinese side, which capitalized on some poor defending from the Philippines to secure their second straight win and progress to the Round of 16.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Philippine Army to acquire MANPADS, self-propelled howitzers On a high after their impressive performance in the 0-1 loss to South Korea, the Azkals’ pride was pricked by China’s workmanlike and classy display that was highlighted by two sublime goals by Wu Lei.The Azkals still have an outside chance of reaching the next round after South Korea nipped Kyrgyzstan, 1-0, last Friday night, but they would need to beat the Kyrgyz side first and hope that other results go their way.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissThe final group match is slated on Wednesday at Rashid Stadium in Dubai.“We still have hope,” said captain Stephan Schrock. “As you know, South Korea beat Kyrgyzstan last night and so we can still have a little final for the third place for maybe a place in the next round.” Ginebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup title Duterte wants ‘one-on-one’ talk with Joma Sison PLAY LIST 01:57Duterte wants ‘one-on-one’ talk with Joma Sison01:43Duterte OKs holiday truce with Reds02:09‘I am prepared:’ Duterte reiterates openness to accept Rohingya refugees02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award View commentslast_img read more
