Maldives vs Philippines
Maldives seeks to turn on the opportunity to penetrate the top of Group A in the fourth week of World Cup qualifiers. They will face a tough opponent, Philippines, who is scheduled to be entertained Thursday (11/14) at the National Football Stadium.
This new Maldives pocketed 3 points, the result of victory over Guam (0-1) in the first week. Too bad, next they lost to China (0-5) and Syria (2-1). This chart can only help them sit in 3rd place.
Meanwhile, Philippines is directly above it with 4 points. They had started the campaign with a crushing defeat of Syria (2-5), only then to get points from Guam (1-4) and China (0-0).
This visit will be the second meeting between the Maldives and the Philippines after four years ago meeting in a trial match. At that time the ASEAN representative won with a score of 2-0, one of which was printed by suicide. This time, they were again seeded with a better record from the host, both from the final results and matters of scoring. The results of the match will also be very important for the Philippines to catch up on Syria and China which currently have 9 and 7 points.
