Misagh Bahadoran and the rest of the Philippine Azkals get ready to host a few familiar foes in the AFF Suzuki Cup
The Philippine Azkals are set to face some familiar competition when they play hosts to Group A of the 2016 Suzuki Cup, later this year.
Group A, which analysts are already calling "The Group of Death" will include Indonesia, Singapore, and Thailand, all of whom have faced - and eliminated - the Philippine National Team in previous Suzuki Cup editions.
Thailand eliminated the Azkals in the semifinals back in 2014, while Singapore did it in 2012, and Indonesia in 2010.
It's going to be quite the opening round for the home team, as they try make it past the tournament semifinals, a feat they have not yet to accomplished.
Group B on the other hand, will feature hosts Myanmar, along with Malaysia, Vietnam, and the winners of the Qualifying Round.
The 2016 AFF Suzuki Cup kicks off on November 19th at the Philippine Sports Stadium in Bocaue, Bulacan. Group B kicks off the following day at thr Thuwunna YTC Stadium in Yangon.
