Philippine soccer team reaches regional finals, 5 fans celebrate victory.

So apparently we’re getting better at soccer, which is a good thing because we have a genetic drawback when it comes to basketball. The Philippine soccer team trumped Brunei, 4-1 in order to advance to the AFF (formerly Tiger Cup) league finals, coming second to overall winner Laos. Laos was the only team to beat the Philippines, fashioning a 2-1 victory from tactical errors made by the local squad.

Visit pinoysoccer.com for more info. They gush a little too much and are sometimes retardedly optimistic about our chances in the world of football, but they do a decent job of keeping pinoy soccer fans updated.

As an aside, I actually know the Philippines’ team captain, Ali Borromeo from our days in Lasalle Green Hills. At the time, he was deciding whether to pursue soccer or basketball as a sport. He chose soccer, and it looks like his timing was perfect.
