Wikings take: The Philippines vs Malaysia friendly

 So here we go again, another friendly series for the Azkals and with that, a new round of missing players, players with previous engagements, club commitments what have you. Either way its going to be exciting and perhaps with the missing players, the coaching staff will be able to utilize other "newcomers" thus adding to the depth of the national team pool. After all "missing" or absent players are not the exception but the norm for National Teams around the world.
