Azkals defeated Sri Lanka, 4-0, (5-1 on aggregate) at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.  The Philippine football team Azkals made history by becoming the first Philippine team to advance to the second round of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Azkals Chieffy Caligdong scored the first goal in the 18th minute to put the Philippine ahead.  He found the back of the net with a strike that caromed off the left post.  Phil Younghusband also scored in the 42nd minute made it 2-0 in favor of the Philippines.  It was Angel Guirado’s turn to score in the second half.  Guirado beat the Sri Lankans' offside trap and rounded the goalkeeper to tap the ball in.  Phil scored the fourth goal through a penalty kick in the 56th minute after Stephan Schrock was brought down by a Sri Lankan defender inside the box.

Angel Locsin, rumored girl friend of Phil Younghusband was also in Rizal Stadium to support the Azkals.

Azkals team captain Aly Borromeo was also called for his 2nd yellow card in the qualifier. He is also barred from playing in the next match.
