Philippine Men's National Football team head coach Tom Dooley once again stressed the need for the Azkals to play as one team against Yemen in the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 Qualifiers at the Pana-ad Park and Stadium in Bacolod City, 7:30 tonight.

Ginebra silences Star in OT
to move to top spot in PBA

Ginebra needed overtime to pip Star, 105-101, in the latest installment of the PBA's "Manila Clasico" in front of 15,325 people at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Sunday night.

In a close game that saw 29 lead changes and 16 stalemates, it was Japeth Aguilar's putback slam with 5.3 seconds left that mattered as the Barangay survived a lethargic game from the free throw line, Paul Lee's hot game from beyond the arc, and even a huge foul by Aguilar himself in the dying moments of the regulation that led to the extra five minutes.

Up 93-92, Ginebra had a chance to put the game away from the foul line, but Scottie Thompson, a relatively steady shooter from the stripe, missed both of his free throws with 22.3 seconds left in regulation.
