PH Azkals fall to Cambodia to open AFF Cup campaign

The Philippine Azkals absorbed their first defeat at the hands of Cambodia in 20 years after falling 3-2 to begin their Asean Football Federation (AFF) Mitsubishi Electric Cup campaign off on a wrong foot on Tuesday in Phnom Penh.

A brace from Kenshiro Daniels allowed the Azkals to come back from two goals down to draw level in the second half, only for Reung Bunheig to produce the eventual winner in the 59th minute of their Group A match held at Morodok Techo National Stadium.

Chances to equalize, including a pair from Stephan Schrock and Jarvey Gayoso during a tense final moments went futile and the Filipino booters lost for the first time to the Angkor Warriors since 2002.
