The Philippine Azkals are all set to begin their quest for the Suzuki Cup Championship on Saturday. But they'll have to do it minus first choice keeper Neil Etheridge.

The Fil-Brit was initially allowed by Bristol Rovers to play in the tournament but he was eventually recalled by his English mother club, Fulham.

Eduard Sacapaño will take his spot.

The Azkals will take on host Thailand in their opener.

Leading the Philippine team are captain Chieffy Caligdong, brothers Phil and James Younghusband, Denis Wolf and Rob Gier. – ANC Top Story
