Tomorrow, I am heading to Rizal Memorial Stadium again to watch the Azkals – the Philippine National Football Team in the first leg and our first home game in the AFF Suzuki Cup semi-finals. We are facing the Singapore Lions, who lost to us twice during friendly matches this year. The Azkals are on the semis for the 2nd time, one back in 2010 – the time they shocked the whole country that a national football team exist and that they beat the current tourney champion -Vietnam and went to the semis!

I can still remember it because I was one of those surprised to know that we actually have a football team and that they are competing! I was on vacation for about 5 months after quitting my demanding job, and was still infected by the FIFA World Cup fever that time, and so into football matches. Of course being a fan of the beautiful game, I immediately became a fan of the Azkals!

And now, we are on the semis again! If in 2010 we were denied of a home again because the tourney officials thought our stadium wasn’t good enough to stage an international game. Now,
we are granted of our well-deserved home game in front of the enthusiastic home crowd! Gosh I am so excited for tomorrow! Kudos to PFF for doing something to improve our stadium.

So I will be cheering proud and loud for the Azkals tomorrow! Like I always say, you have this different sense of pride when you have your own team representing the country.

See you my boys tomorrow! #Laban Pilipinas! #Azkals!
