The Azkals slide down to 135th in the world after a couple of months of inactivity
The Philippine National Football team’s recent inactivity has taken it’s toll, as the Azkals dropped fifteen places down to 135th in the world in the latest FIFA World Rankings.
135th place is the lowest that the Philippines has been this year, claiming that rank thrice already in 2016 (January, March, July).
The last time that the Azkals competed was way back in March 29, closing out their World Cup Qualifiers campaign with an amazing comeback win over North Korea.
The Azkals will be having a number of international friendlies in the coming months to prepare for the AFF Suzuki Cup, which is expected to take place in November.
The first friendly will be against Australia’s Perth FC on July 26 in Bantay, Vigan.
