Full credit goes to the players for putting in such a good performance—their attitude has been first class.”The Azkals tracked back every time they lost possession, won 50-50 battles and showed they could operate in tight spaces inside the box with Stephan Schrock a constant threat on the flanks.More importantly, the Azkals may have found the balance of getting their shape and organization spot-on when they didn’t have the ball while not exposing themselves defensively when they’re creating great chances—something that they lacked against Timor Leste.The entry of Alvaro Silva in the backline proved key in stabilizing a wobbly defense, while Jovin Bedic emerged as an additional attacking option as the team goes further in the tournament with a performance highlighted by his bizarre goal in the 81st minute.“As a Filipino player, you dream of scoring for the Philippines,” said Bedic. “Thailand is the favorite team in the tournament. It was a big game. I’m proud of what our team was able to achieve tonight. The whole team was working hard but with Thailand ahead, we knew it was going to be difficult. But coach told me to prepare so I just grabbed the opportunity.”ADVERTISEMENT Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum Greatwich said Bedic’s performance typified what the squad was all about in terms of its development the past few months.“He (Bedic) has been excellent in training and typifies the superb application of the whole squad,” said Greatwich. “The culmination of all his hard work in this camp (and throughout the season) came to the fore last night.”Need more workThe Azkals still have to work on their finishing inside the box as Phil Younghusband, Daisuke Sato and Patrick Reichelt all spurned superb chances. But they have laid down a marker for the rest of the teams in the tournament: When they are in their game, they can topple any team—even the defending champions.The Azkals came into the match looking to end a 46-year winless spell against the Thais. And even if they failed in that bid, the team’s battling performance was enough to impress coach Sven-Goran Eriksson.“First of all I think we played very well 90 minutes,” said Eriksson. “We were the better team out there. A draw is OK but we could have won the game. I think we did very well against a good team.”“If we play like this we should qualify for the semifinals,” added Eriksson. “I think this is a very good performance for us.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown Allen Durham still determined to help Meralco win 1st PBA title Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California college Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
