The Philippine Men’s National Team will battle Southeast Asian neighbors Malaysia and Singapore in the FAS Tri-Nations Series to be held from 23-29 March 2022 in Singapore.
The Philippines will face Malaysia on 23 March followed by Singapore on 29 March. Both matches will be played at the National Stadium.
The tournament will be the Azkals’ first international outing for this year and will also serve as the team’s preparation for the AFC Asian Cup China 2023 qualifiers scheduled for June 2022 in Mongolia.
Twenty-five (25) players were called up to comprise the Philippine delegation for the Tri-Nations Series.
Forward Gerrit Holtmann, who plays for Bundesliga side VfL Bochum, is set to make his long awaited national team debut. Joining Holtmann as the new additions to the squad are defenders Enrique Linares and Diego Bardanca.
Both goalkeeper Neil Etheridge and midfielder John Patrick Strauss make their return to the squad after missing out on the World Cup qualifiers and the Suzuki Cup campaigns last year.
