One good fight

It was a momentous event not just for the Philippine Azkals but the Filipinos as well. It is the first time that one of the best soccer/football teams in North America paid us a visit for the Dream Cup. Everyone knew that we would not stand a chance but what the heck! It’s David Beckham they are facing against, let alone LA Galaxy.
Beckham scored a goal after 20 minutes. You could actually hear the cheers, shrieks and every imaginable verbal and non-verbal expression a girl could make every time Beckham takes the free kick. When his play time was over, everyone got up on their feet to show respect to him.
Crowd went wild(er) when he took off his jersey and handed it off to Manny Pacquiao.
The Azkals actually did not go home empty handed. Phil Younghusband scored a goal.
The game was over and LA Galaxy scored a total of 6 goals, Azkals remained with one goal. Nonetheless, the event was a great one and everyone was smiling except maybe for the Azkals coach who uttered his disappointment with his guys’ game.
