The Philippines ended up in Group A of the AFF Suzuki Cup, alongside powerhouses Singapore, Vietnam, and Thailand.
Tuesday evening, the Philippines was drawn into Group A of the 2016 AFF Suzuki Cup, along with Thailand, Vietnam, and Singapore.
Already, people are calling it the "Group of Death."
See what else people had to say about the Philippines' placement in this year's Suzuki Cup tournament.
Azkals defender Amani Aguinaldo was in Yangon to represent the Philippines during the AFF Suzuki Cup draw
Fan favorite Stephan Schrock was pretty excited to see who the Azkals will be facing...
Azkals standout Iain Ramsay looks like he likes how the draw turned out.
Same goes for teammate Manny Ott
Former Azkals skipper Rob Gier got a bit sentimental, knowing that he won't be with his former mates on the pitch this time around.
Some of ABS-CBN Sports' men on the mic for football also had something to say about the "Group of Death"
This is a Group of Death. Any group with Thailand is a G.O.D. Tapos sa kabila pa ang qualifier. It's time to put in the work! #azkals— Bob Guerrero (@PassionateFanPH) August 2, 2016
Oh dear. Indonesia, Thailand, and Singapore in Group A?!?! Pls don't put the Philippines there 😳— TJ Manotoc (@tjmanotoc) August 2, 2016
Azkals team manager Dan Palami isn't fazed at all, and welcomes the challenge for the Azkals.
Wow! AZKALS have just been drawn in the group with countries who eliminated us in the semis for the past 3 editions of Suzuki Cup! GAME ON!— dan stephen palami (@dscpalami) August 2, 2016
