The Philippine Under-22 Men’s National Football Team begins their quest to bring home a gold medal in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games Men’s Football Tournament as they begin their campaign against Cambodia at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium on Monday, November 25th.
Bolstered by the additions of Azkals team captain Stephan Schrock and Amani Aguinaldo as the 23 and over players, the U-22 Azkals are gunning for a podium finish for the first time in SEA Games history.
