It’s a different game, a different time and hopefully, a different result.”Thailand and Philippines are actually on pace to reach the knockout stage with seven points each, although the Thais hold a superior goal difference.

A Singapore win and a draw in Jakarta will eliminate Thailand.“We know it’s a very important game and to lose is a big risk,” said Azkals coach Sven Goran Eriksson. “We don’t expect an easy game because everybody wants to win. It’s a difficult game, but a big game nonetheless.”ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
