I looked at the previous Challenge Cup and it looks like it's considered a "friendly".
Thats because the countrys competing in that tournament are considered minnows. There would be total chaos if that happens.
if team usa did it before to inflate their rankings, why can't we? besides, it's legal. and we could guise it for 'international exposure' purposes.
New rankings will be released in a few hours.
FIFA rankings for the month have been released. Argentina have jumped over the Brazillians and are now the top S. American side. The Azkals have earned 5 points over the last month and have swapped placed with Fiji into 151. They are also rise one spot to become the 6th best team in the AFF. Myanmar on the other hand have dropped 27 points and 12 places. They have fallen from the fifth best team in the AFF to 8th best.
still at page 4. no. 151. could have been 150 if not for equatorial guinea's rise from 165 to 148.
jamaica gained 11 spots and is now at no.48.
luxembourg up 14 places at 117.
guinea bissau up 10 spots (136).
bosnia-herzegovina lost 14 spots (56).
austria lost 16 spots (61).
biggest loser is turkmenistan, down 21 places. (154)
Rankings of possible opponents for the PHilippine team over the next month:
Bangladesh # 174
bigla akong kinabahan doon. hindi ako sanay na hindi tayo underdog.
huwag sanang maging complacent ang azkals going to the group stages.
hehehe kayang kaya yan bangladesh na yan. squatter ang general population nyan kaya dapat lang pakainin sila ng alikabok. at yang palestine? hindi bibigyan ng israel ang mga top players nila ng permit. mga terrorist yan. lecheng group stage yan pag di pa tayo nakalampas dyan. myanmar? wala yan! itaga nyo sa bato!
kelangan nga ba 'mappromote' PRK to the next level?
ang tagal naman ng second leg.
@clockwork - kelangan natin atleast completo ang azkal lineup na umabot sa semis last suzuki para talaga makaprogress tayo.. + the new azkals on the bench. malakas talaga line up natin.
nakakatakot nga eh. malagyan lang ng jaugan, bermejo, sacapano ang team natin nagiging shi+house talaga tayo. sorry na lang sa mga fans ng local players pero crappy pa talaga sila. kahit ano pang gawin natin.
sana makaabot nga tayo sa group stage ng challenge cup para makita natin kung gaano talaga tayo kalakas. imagine nyo na lang kung anong klaseng team meron tayo kung ang line up natin ay ganito:
DF Borromeo, Del Rosario, Schroek, Cagara
MF J Younghusband, De Jong, Lucena
ST P Younghusband, Guirado, Caligdong
Bench - Ray Jonsson, Rob Gier, Roland Mueller, Araneta
Retirement Home - Bermejo, Gener, Jaugan, Barsales
Wow imagine that! we have quality coming off the bench for us. We need to find another striker though and a seat belt for Araneta to ensure that he doesnt have to get off the bench and waste away chances on the pitch as a crummy substitute.
Caligdong will need to be replaced as soon as we find a more suitable replacement. lumalaki ulo since that chamba goal in bacolod. he thinks of himself as some sort of messiah for the crummy locals.
Bukas na ilalabas rankings. Malamang page 3 na tayo
sana page 3 na
We will see how things will go. HOpefully all those Euro 2012 won't affect our chances of getting into page 3.
The Philippines has dropped four spots to 155 in the latest FIFA/Coca-COla rankings. Included in the calculations are the 4 games we played in the AFC Challenge Cup qualifers.
