27July 2015 – Manila: Only four countries in Asia will qualify for the World Cup Finals in 2018 in Russia and Azkals manager Dan Palami called the Philippine national football team’s chances as “promising.”

Palami is hoping that “everything would fall in place” for the Philippine national football team to make it to the world’s largest international team sport competition.

“It’s a tall order for us to make the third round, especially with our group that includes some very strong teams. But the team (Azkals) got off to a good start with two wins and the performance was also very satisfying, so it’s really promising,” Palami said.

The Philippine Team, recently described by a article as "fast-progressing," beat Bahrain for the first time, 2-1, at the Philippine Sports Stadium in Bocaue, Bulacan, last June 11 then trounced Yemen, 2-0, on the road last June 16. It will face tough Uzbekistan on Sept. 8 at the Philippine Sports Stadium.

Palami cited teams like South Korea, Japan and Australia and Middle East squads such as the United Arab Emirates, Iran and Iraq as powerhouses in Asia, one of the six FIFA continental zones where the qualifying rounds are being held. The other zones are Europe, North and Central America and Caribbean, South America, Africa, and Oceania.

From a large field of over 200 countries, the ongoing qualifying process will reduce the competition to just 32 countries for the World Cup Finals.

“These Asian teams are always expected to figure prominently in the qualifiers,” said Palami.

He admitted there’s plenty of work ahead “and we need some luck along the way to make the next round.”

“But, as they say, anything’s possible,” he added.

In the present Group H where the Philippines is bracketed, Uzbekistan is the top seed but it lost to North Korea last June 16, “so that makes North Korea a favorite in our group as well, ” Palami said.

The Philippine Azkals will face North Korea on Oct. 8 this year in its capital Pyongyang, one of three remaining games in the ongoing qualifying round scheduled to be played outside of Manila.

Palami said the present team has a nice mix of veteran and young players “who seemed to have adjusted to coach Thomas Dooley’s system.”

“We are not only winning but playing good football as well. It’s a team that the country can be proud of, which is what I always wanted to form,” said Palami, who is in charge of recruiting players.

Among the Asian countries, South Korea and Japan have the most number of World Cup appearances. South Korea has nine World Cup appearances, finishing 4th in 2002, its best ever, while Japan has five appearances.

Iran, Saudi Arabia and Australia have four World Cup appearances each, while Indonesia, Israel, Kuwait, Iraq, United Arab Emirates and the People’s Republic of China have one World Cup appearance each.

Tickets for the Azkals vs. Uzbekistan game to be held at the Philippine Sports Stadium on September 8, 2015 are now available at Tickets are at P531.80 for Price Zone 1, P331.14 for Price Zone 2 and P125.40 for Price Zone 3.

Carmudi PH: Local auto industry needs to better utilize Filipino’s internet usage to tap widespread market


A recent survey from an online-based classifieds Carmudi revealed that e-commerce on automobiles in the Philippines continues to flourish given the steady economic growth, widespread use of the internet and the upward trend on vehicle sales.

Based on the Carmudi’s Report on the Booming Automotive Industry in Emerging Markets, the Philippines automotive industry showed “a stellar performance throughout last year and early 2015. First quarter of 2015 sales reached 62,882 units, breaking the 60,000 unit record for the first time,” following the “booming economic expansion and growth of the middle class.”

It also claimed that the Philippines is the fastest-growing automobile market in the region, ahead of Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Vietnam, citing the Asean Automotive Federation report for the first half of 2014.

With that, the local arm of Carmudi expressed firm belief that the e-commerce on automobiles should be utilized more in emerging countries such as Philippines.

Lohani said that e-commerce, especially when it comes to automotive and its aftermarket is widespread that many are using the online-based sources, such as company websites, and online classifieds, among others.

Based on Carmudi Car Buyer Survey, potential buyers are being influenced by online sources, including Manufacturer sites, dealer sites, general internet searches, and online classifieds such as Carmudi. The results of the survey showed that 28 percent of the respondents based on the internet versus the 18.7 percent that visited actual dealer sites and auto expos.


He also cited their study wherein more than half of the motor vehicle dealers are tapping the internet to advertise their listings.

“Our study found that 66.7% of car dealers in the country are majorly focused on advertising their listings through the Internet. Online classifieds are also seen as a great way to advertise car listings, with over 46% of car dealer survey participants currently advertising their car listings on online classifieds. Car dealers in Philippines are aware of the potential that social media has, with over 33% reporting active social media use,” Lohani explained.

He also cited the We Are Social’s Digital Report in January 2015, saying that internet access grew by 500 percent over the years, with its highest growth rate in the Southeast Asia. The same report stated that Philippines leads in “Time Spent on the Internet”.

“With all these figures, e-commerce in the region, especially in the Philippines would continue to be enjoyed by many for a long period of time. Manufacturers, or even buy-and-sellers need to find more ways to utilize such this avenue to tap a more diverse market,” Lohani said.

Meanwhile, Beth Lee President of EMotors Inc—expressed firm belief that the internet can be a good source of reliable information and a great avenue when picking a motor vehicle to buy.

“Yes (the online-selling platform can be considered a good source when picking a vehicle to purchase), I believe so. Reliance on info at your fingertips is something people now take for granted. It’s the fastest way to do comparisons and get info on choices before buying. Good platform for information, resource and source. The Internet can hook up buyers and sellers,” she explained.

Carmudi was founded in 2013 and is currently available in Bangladesh, Cameroon, Congo, Ghana, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Mexico, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, and Zambia. The vehicle marketplace offers buyers, sellers and car dealers the ideal platform to find cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles online.

21 July 2015 Manila: The Philippine national football team is scheduled to play only three more games in the country in the ongoing qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup as the rest of its matches will be held outside the Philippines.

“Let’s take advantage of the hometown matches by watching the Azkals play in person. The Azkals will be playing for the country’s honor. The fans’ support will count a lot,” Team Manager Dan Palami said.

The next Azkals game is scheduled on September 8 against a tough Uzbekistan squad at the spanking Philippine Sports Stadium in Bocaue, Bulacan. Kickoff time is at 8 p.m.

Palami said playing before a home crowd will be motivating for the Azkals, especially if the players see the all-out support of fans turning up in droves for the games.

“We are fortunate to see our Azkals playing more home games, unlike in the 2011 qualifiers where they had only two home games,” he said.

For the ongoing World Cup qualifiers, the Azkals were lined up to play four games in the Philippines — with the first game already held last June 11 against Bahrain at the Philippine Sports Stadium — and another four games outside the country under a round robin format. The first home away game of the Azkals happened last June 17 in Doha, Qatar, when it trounced Yemen, 2-0.


After the September 8 game against Uzbekistan, the next Azkals matches in the country are on November 12, 2015, against Yemen and on March 29 next year against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea), both at the Philippine Sports Stadium.

The rest of the Azkals games scheduled outside of the country are on October 8, 2015, against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in Pyongyang; on October 13, 2015, against Bahrain in Manama, and on March 24 next year against Uzbekistan in Tashkent.

There are eight groups with five teams each. The top team in each group plus the four second-best teams to be determined by goal difference across all groups will advance to the next round. The Philippines, Uzbekistan, People’s Republic of Korea, Bahrain, and Yemen are in Group H.

The 12 teams will compete in the 2016 qualifiers, which will determine the final group for the World Cup in 2018 to be held in Russia. The 12 teams will also automatically qualify for the 2019 Asian Cup.

“Our ultimate goal is to play in the World Cup, the most followed sporting event worldwide and which is every nation’s dream,” Palami said.

Tickets for the Azkals vs. Uzbekistan game to be held at the Philippine Sports Stadium on September 8, 2015 are now available at Tickets are at P531.80 for Price Zone 1, P331.14 for Price Zone 2 and P125.40 for Price Zone 3.

– End –

Secure Shopping

(Fabrice Marie, Senior Vice President, Security – Lazada Group):

  • For mobile shopping, choose shopping sites with an app. It’s easier to use and most importantly, more secure as it’s harder to tamper with.

  • Check news articles about the shopping site to ensure it’s not a temporary online shop that will disappear after pocketing your money.

  • Ensure the shopping site has a return policy such as Lazada’s Buyer Protection: online shops without return policies can mean scam or unauthentic products.

  • Do not give your password to anyone. Online shops’ email support or call support personnel should never require your password for identification.

  • Only use your credit or debit card on sites with a padlock icon in the URL bar. This means the site uses secure communications to prevent any third-party eavesdropping.

  • Choose a reputable and secure payment method such as helloPay (note: only for SG & PH) to further secure your payment details.

  • Check for security labels such as PCI-DSS certification. This means the shop has been audited and is certified safe to use.

  • If you don’t receive an acknowledgement email from the online shop shortly after a purchase, there might be an issue with your purchase or it might be a scam. Call the site’s hotline to verify.

  • If you strongly suspect you have been scammed and your credit card information has been stolen, contact your bank or credit card issuer to block the card and investigate.

Savvy Fashionistas

(Nicole Villanueva, Category Director for Fashion & Watches, Travel & Luggage, Sports & Outdoors – Lazada Philippines)

  • Pick the right size by using the size chart feature, taking your measurements and checking carefully for any international conversions (UK, US, EU, Japan).

  • Ensure the site has an exchange policy like Lazada’s 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed policy that enables you to return clothes within 7 days, and re-order the outfit in a size that fits you perfectly.

  • Only shop for fashion on websites that provide a few angles so you can see exactly how the clothes fit on the model or mannequin.

  • Get your friends’ comments or ‘likes’ easily by sharing the item on Facebook or Instagram before buying.

  • Busy fashionistas can shop on-the-go with Lazada’s mobile apps.

  • Read product details to check on the fabrication so you’ll know how the clothes feel on you.

Parenting Shoppers

(Alex Mendoza, Head of Retail and FMCG – Lazada Philippines):

  • Spend quality time with your family instead of getting caught in traffic to the shopping mall. Online shopping lets you shop at your convenience, any time of the day!

  • Diapers and milk powder are not only expensive, but heavy to carry. Look out for online promotions and take advantage of door-step delivery.

  • Follow the Lazada Super Moms Facebook page and subscribe to the newsletters to get the latest deals delivered straight to you.

  • Busy parents can save precious time by shopping on the Lazada mobile apps.

  • Don’t let getting overwhelmed in crowded malls and toy stores stop you from giving the best to your kids. Shop for educational toys online, conveniently.

  • If you’ve brought the wrong size of maternity clothes, take advantage of Lazada’s  100% Satisfaction Guaranteed policy. Return the wrong size within 14 days (30 for Vietnam), and re-order the outfit in the right size.

Tech Addicts

(Arnold Balao, Senior Vice-President, Electronics Category, Lazada Philippines):

  • Online shopping allows you to compare prices for your favourite gadget. Do keep a look out for sellers on the same site that may offer a bigger discount or bundle deal.

  • Searching for phone accessories, power banks and covers is less overwhelming online as you can easily compare your options and colors, and sort them by price.

  • Subscribe to Lazada’s newsletter or like our Facebook page to get news on exclusive and limited edition tech launches.

  • When looking for a gadget in a specific model or colour, check out Lazada’s wide range online first. It’s better than visiting the retail store and discovering the gadget’s sold out.

15 July 2015 – Manila: The Philippine Azkals will face a hardened and experienced Uzbekistan squad on Sept. 8, a game that would test the mettle of the newly-minted and strongest ever roster of overseas- and local-based professional footballers.

“We need the support of Filipino football enthusiasts and even non-football fans to fill up the Philippine Sports Stadium in Bocaue, Bulacan, and applaud and inspire our players to give their best for the country,” Team Manager Dan Palami said.

Opened on July 21 last year, the world class Philippine Sports Stadium is the newest and largest stadium in the Philippines with a maximum football seating capacity of 20,000. Located within a tourism enterprise zone in Bocaue, it is bordered by the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) itself and easily accessible by private or public transport. Travel time is less than an hour from most parts of Metro Manila as the site is just after Marilao and before Bocaue with direct access exit along NLEX.

Holding the game at the Philippine Sports Stadium will also allow spectators to experience first class facilities and ultra modern surroundings and see the 103 x 68 meters football field with natural grass surface, he said.

The much-awaited match, which is part of the Asian qualifiers of the 2018 FIFA World Cup, starts at 8 p.m., giving football aficionados and non-aficionados enough time to catch the first kick.

“There’s no better way to push our Azkals to play at the top of their game, score goals and impose a high-pressure defense on the opponents than the thunderous applause, encouraging shouts of fans and electric atmosphere in the stadium,” Coach Tom Dooley said.

He said Uzbekistan, which ranks 75th in the recent FIFA rankings and the highest ranked team in its group, is a formidable opponent and has been burnishing its credentials as genuine title contenders in Asia. The Uzbeks have a good showing in the tough Asian Cup with back-to-back quarter-final appearances in 2004 and 2007 and a fourth place finish in Qatar in 2011.

Talking about determination to make it to the FIFA World Cup in 2018, Uzbekistan has lots of it since host Russia is just next door and it wants nothing short of qualification for its first ever World Cup.

The Azkals, on the other hand, are ranked 124th, so far their highest place in the history of the FIFA rankings. They also dislodged Southeast Asian neighbors Thailand (140th) and Vietnam (143rd) in the recent rankings.

“The team is very motivated to end the qualifying round at the top of the group to be able to move a step closer to the World Cup. It’s an uphill goal but we will do our best to achieve it,” Palami said. Landing as one of the four best second place finishers in the qualifying round will likewise enable the team to make the cut to the next round of the World Cup.

He believed that the team has assembled the strongest Azkals roster ever with the addition of highly experienced Filipinos playing abroad and some returnees.

The good showing of the Azkals in their first two outings indicated the impressive line-up is living up to its billings. The Azkals defeated Bahrain for the first time, 2-1, at home last June 11 then thrashed Yemen, 2-0, on the road last June 16. A win against Uzbekistan on September 8 will help advance the team to the next round in the World Cup qualifiers and also book an automatic slot in the next AFC Asian Cup.

Tickets for the Azkals vs. Uzbekistan game to be held at the Philippine Sports Stadium on September 8, 2015 are now available at Tickets are at P531.80 for Price Zone 1, P331.14 for Price Zone 2 and P125.40 for Price Zone 3.
