New faces joining Azkals' lineup
in Asian Cup Qualifier vs. Yemen

Two new faces made it to the Azkals training pool for their AFC Asian Cup qualifier match against Yemen on Sept. 5 at the Panaad Stadium in Bacolod City.

Tyler Matas, who has become a key player for Meralco Manila especially when the Younghusband brothers departed for Davao, was called to the 23-man pool.

Also making it to the pool is Harry Foll, 19-year-old midfielder who plays for German third division side Hansa Rostock.

One gold, 4 bronzes
for PH in pencaksilat

The Philippines won one gold and three bronze medals in the Tanding category of the 29th Southeast Asian Games pencaksilat competition at the Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiarayesterday in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Dines Dumaan delivered the country's 24th gold when he won the men's Class A (45kg-55kg).

Indonesian Firman got the silver while Malaysian MastafaFitri and Singaporean Muhammad Ridhwan took the bronze medals.

Gold rush seals SEA Games
medals victory for Malaysia

Malaysia clinched victory on the Southeast Games medals table yesterday as a rush of victories took the home nation to a record total -- and nearly one-third of the tournament's golds.

On a bumper penultimate day, with 60 gold medals up for grabs, Malaysia snared 22 to reach 133 for the tournament, putting an unbridgeable distance between them and the chasing pack.

Malaysia already have about one-third of the 404 gold medals at the mini-Olympics, smashing their previous record of 111 and sealing top spot for the first time in 16 years.
