"The Philippines made a confident start to the second round of joint qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup/2019 AFC Asian Cup with a 2-1 home win over Bahrain in Thursday’s Group H curtain raiser at the Philippines Sports Stadium. Neither side could take the initiative in the opening period before substitute Misagh Bahadoran - a 23rd minute replacement for Stephan Schrock - broke the deadlock five minutes after the interval. The home side doubled their advantage ten minutes later through Javier Patino, a two-time Thai Premier League winner with Buriram United prior to his move to Henan Jianye at the turn of the year. Al Hidd midfielder Abdulwahab Al Malood reduced the deficit three minutes into second-half stoppage time but it was too little too late for the 2015 AFC Asian Cup qualifiers as the Philippines held on for all three points." - AFC

"Philippines are the first team through to the semi-finals of the 2014 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Championship after claiming a resounding 4-0 win over Indonesia on Tuesday. The Azkals took the lead at the My Dinh National Stadium in the 16th minute when Phil Younghusband clinically fired home from the penalty spot, after Misagh Bahadoran had been brought down by Firman Utina inside the area. Seven minutes after the break, they doubled their advantage through a stunning strike from Manny Ott, who latched onto Bahadoran’s cutback and sent an unstoppable 20-yard half-volley into the top corner. The game was then all but over eight minutes after the hour mark after Indonesia goalkeeper Kurnia Meiga conceded an indirect freekick inside the box by handling a back-pass; Younghusband immediately slipping the ball to Martin Steuble to slot into the unguarded net before their opponents could regroup.... the Azkals went on to wrap up an emphatic triumph as Rob Gier poked home a fourth goal on the rebound, after his initial header had come back off the post." - AFC

November 14, 2014 - Sato, Ott & Younghusband score in win over Cambodia
"The Philippine men’s football team built up its confidence heading into an important tournament as it blanked Cambodia, 3-0, in their friendly on Friday night at the Rizal Memorial Stadium. In their last match before the Asean Football Federation Suzuki Cup, the Azkals leaned on two-goal lead in the first half to score the shutout. Phil Younghusband delivered as usual, but it was Daisuke Sato and Manny Ott who set the tone for the one-sided result. Sato put the Azkals on the scoreboard 13 minutes into the match when the Filipino-Japanese left-back fired a rocket from more than 30 yards out that grazed Cambodian goalkeeper Sou Yati before going in, sending the partisan crowd into frenzy. Manny Ott doubled the lead five minutes before first-half stoppage time when the Filipino-German midfielder scored off a Phil Younghusband miss for his first international goal as a senior. Younghusband found the back of the net in the second half, sneaking in a goal a minute past stoppage time." - Filipino Football
