Azkals U23 fall to Timor Leste, end Asian Cup Qualifiers campaign winless

The Philippine Azkals U-23 squad pushed for the win, but a goal from Zenivio Mota late in the match saw them absorb another defeat, 0-1. They end the 2022 AFC Under-23 Asian Cup Qualifiers winless, Sunday at the Jalan Besar Stadium, Singapore.

The result saw the Young Azkals with three losses in the qualification stage, putting them at the bottom of the group.

Timor Leste ended their stint with four points. They tie with host Singapore, who will face defending champions Korea Republic later today.

The result was a far cry from the last time the two squads met two years ago at the 30th Southeast Asian Games. The Philippines blew the Timor Leste squad, 6-1, paced by a hat-trick from Amani Aguinaldo.
