FROM THE BLEACHERS: Pinoy Azkals fans rally behind the PH football team

Jan. 13, 19 | 6:34 pm

The Filipino Times did the rounds of the thousands of Pinoys who went to watch the Azkals games and came up with these messages of support for the team and their own country.

“I’m proud of the Philippine team for this legendary milestone – it’s our country’s first time to make it to the AFC Asian Cup! On the first match, they had a great defense and showed real teamwork. Though they lost, I’m sure they’ll try harder. So, let’s all support our country’s pride as they show the world that we can also make a mark in football.”
– Joseph Alcantara
“I probably share the same sentiments with some Filipinos watching the game. I’m not a football fan; don’t know much about the rules; but seeing Azkals on the field putting up a good fight and backed by a wild crowd of Filipino supporters just made me an instant football fan. The Korea game was so intense that despite its defeat, the Azkals received a whole lot of love inside Al Maktoum stadium specially at the conclusion of the game where the team approached the very loud and proud Pinoy crowd to express their appreciation. I may have not fully understood the technicalities of the game but its so clear to me how Filipinos dedicate their time and their talent to wave the flag whether their on the field or on the grandstand.”
– Ryan Mark Rebeca
“More than the idea of winning, may our first-ever participation in this year’s Asian Football Cup help in uplifting our spirit of camaraderie and loyalty as a nation. KPOP and Korean BBQ sure won our hearts, but may we continue to cheer with great pride, win or lose. Go Azkals!!!!”

“It was exciting kasi first time nating nakapasok sa Asian Cup. Though natalo, suporta pa rin tayo hanggang sa wakas.”
– Allan Mabuti (second from left)

“Na-e-excite kami lalo na kapag lalabas na si Phil (Younghusband). Marami ring na-disappoint nang natalo sila. Sa Korea match, magaling ang depensa ng Azkals to think na 1-0 lang ang score.”
— Suzy Delizo (fourth from left)

“I find the game very interesting. It was sheer joy being able to cheer for your country. We may not have won but it was an honor to be a participant,”
– Cris Buenaseda. (third from left)

“I think Korea is really one of the best football squads in Asia so I’m very proud of how the Philippine Azkals gave them a good run for their first match. It was fun cheering with the rest of the Pinoys to the beat of the Korean drum. We were also lucky enough to get a photo with one of the Azkals goalies, Kevin Ray Hansen who was sweet enough say hi to the PH supporters after the game. Laban Azkals, Laban Pilipinas!”
– Veronica Rey (third from left)

“The Azkals, it’s their first time so it’s a natural thing that I think it will be a good experience for them. They will learn from those things that on the games that they have played. Technically, tactically, China and the South Koreans are more advanced in terms of football. And tayo sa Azkals, we have a lot of things to learn. I hope Filipino football will improve. There will be a future in Philippine football.”
– Mark Anthony Pornan

“The game was pretty intense! I’m very proud to see how Azkals have grown. The score could have been a little bit better but I’m just so proud and I’m thankful to have witnessed this wonderful game. I hope that we can support Azkals in the future to see them grow and prosper more.”
– Mariae Marseille Pornan

“Although hindi tayo nanalo, good job pa din mga Azkals and Philippines!”
– Arlene Matalobos
