12 August 2015 – Manila: With the crucial Azkals game against a strong Uzbekistan squad less than a month away, one Azkals player who is feeling the pressure is Filipino-Iranian midfielder Misagh Bahadoran.

Although nobody is putting the pressure on him, Bahadoran feels he has to bring his game one notch higher than his outstanding performances in the last two Azkals games where he nailed the team’s first goal against Bahrain and five days later against Yemen in the ongoing 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

The two wins gave the Philippines six points, second after North Korea in Group H. North Korea is leading the group having scored one more goal (5-4) than the Philippines in two matches.

“The expectation (on me) is high. The pressure is there. It’s harder being in that position now,” Bahadoran said in an interview after a morning training session at the Emperador Stadium in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City. His goal against previous Azkals tormentor Bahrain last June 11 was doubly significant for him as it was his first international goal in football.

But being no stranger to pressure in the past, Bahadoran appears ready for the demands building up around him presently. He acknowledges that the ongoing games are tougher being part of the qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup, the most widely viewed and followed sporting event in the world.

“I have to be prepared, physically and mentally. I have to be disciplined,” he stressed.

The Pampanga-born Fil-Iranian, who is also a vital cog in the United Football League team Global FC, trains everyday, making sure that he is not only sharp with his striking and dribbling but also physically fit, and shuns unnecessary distractions as much as possible, to the point that he remains girlfriend-less for the past nine months.

“I don’t go out with friends. I don’t have a night life. I just want to focus on my football,” Bahadoran said, pointing out that football is his entertainment and happiness.

The absence of distractions makes him more focused during practice and games and it is the reason why he remains “single” for nine months now.

He admitted that the hectic training schedule, commitments as a budding businessman, model and endorser and constant travel abroad for games make it hard for him to give enough time to his lovelife.

His last girlfriend was a Persian and a dentist by profession but their relationship had suffered because of his busy schedule. Without saying it, he had to give up his romantic liaison for his other love, football.

Bahadoran also does not go out with friends nor does he watch the movies as he prefers the comfort of home. At home he lies in bed for that needed rest and recovery from a weary training session day and stays on the phone “for two hours.”

If positive attitude before games is the barometer for the quality performance of a player, Bahadoran will surely score 100 percent.

He specifically shuns negative thoughts and negative people and conditions his mind to win before any game.

“I don’t want to talk about negativity, especially if there is a game. It’s important to be prepared mentally,” Bahadoran said.

That’s why it’s very important for him who his roommate will be before any game. “My roommate is important to me because he is the one I will be talking to before the game.”

“You need motivation, not someone who will talk about problems or negative things. You need to talk how to win, how to fight, this prepares me mentally and makes me strong,” he stressed.

His advice to young people getting into football? “If you have a dream, dream big and follow your dream, work hard, and don’t give up.”

He said anybody can become a football player but what sets the outstanding players apart is their hard work, discipline and the time put into practice. “Some have talents, some work harder, anybody can be a football player but it’s how hard you work towards achieving it that will set you apart. Work harder, be disciplined, train everyday, make sacrifice, and listen to your coach,” Bahadoran said.

6 August 2015 – Manila: Facing their toughest test yet, Philippine Azkals skipper Phil Younghusband hopes the team can carry the momentum of the two early victories in the World Cup Qualifiers when they go up against powerhouse Uzbekistan on Sept. 8 at Philippine Sports Stadium.

The Azkals stunned Middle East powerhouse Bahrain, 2-1, at home, before blanking Yemen, 2-0, in Doha, Qatar last June 17 to gain a share of the lead with North Korea in Group H, considered as one of the toughest groups of the tournament that also serves as a qualifier for the 2019 Asian Cup in the UAE.

We are in a good position after the two wins, but more importantly, we have some confidence going forward,” said Younghusband, the country’s leading international scorer with 42 goals, who turned 28 last Monday.

There are no easy games in this group. We know we would need to play better and work harder against Uzbekistan.”

The Azkals achieved their highest ranking of 124 last month but the Uzbeks are still ranked 49 notches higher at No. 75 by Fifa with some of their standouts playing in Russia.

The top team in the group will secure a place in the third round together with the four best second placers from among the eight brackets.

The 12 teams in the third round will also gain automatic slots to the AFC Asian Cup in 2019. Asia has been allotted four spots in the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia which means the top two from each of the brackets in the third round will qualify.

Under coach Thomas Dooley, the Azkals thrived despite playing a new formation with Younghusband needing to adjust following his switch from striker to attacking midfielder.

The switch allows Younghusband to see more of the ball, giving him attacking freedom which proved key in setting up the goals against Bahrain.

There are a few players that are not playing in their natural positions, but we got players who can adapt and I think that’s good for the team,” Younghusband added.

The skipper sees the Azkals getting better with more games playing with their new system. The team had three new players in Iain Ramsay, Stephan Palla and Luke Woodland inserted into the starting lineup against Yemen.

It is not easy to learn a formation within such a short period of time,” Younghusband said, pointing out that the Azkals only had less than two weeks to work together before the Bahrain match last June. “But the new players have made the team stronger and it gives you more confidence knowing you have these players on your team. It’s all about every one giving 100 percent.”

Tickets are at P531.80 for Price Zone 1, P331.14 for Price Zone 2 and P125.40 for Price Zone 3.

Callalily Photo 01

Celebrating 10 years in the business, rock band Callalily is ready to offer a new sound to their followers and music fans – an upbeat, indie-sounding latest single “Now, I’m Dancing.”

“As a band, we continue to experiment. We started creating music since more than a decade ago, and our music grow with us,” says lead vocalist Kean Cipriano. “But we still remain true to our stories.”

The single “Now, I’m Dancing” speaks of the band’s current status – happy and thankful.

Kean also expresses gratitude to all their fans for allowing them to last this long in a very fickle industry.

“Now, I’m Dancing” will be part of an upcoming 10th anniversary album.

Kean assures fans that the upcoming album will be the most personal, collaborative album of the band.

“Maraming first dun sa lalabas na album,” shares Kean. “Basta, maririnig ng lahat sa kanta naming how tighter we are as a group, as friends.”

Last July 28, Callalily topbilled a special show at 12 Monkeys as part of their 10th anniversary celebration, where some of the songs from the upcoming album were first performed.

"Now I’m Dancing" is now available for download on iTunes, Deezer, Spinnr, Amazon.

COACH TOM DOOLEY STEERS AZKALS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Coach

2 August 2015 – Manila: Philippine Azkals coach Thomas Dooley believes he has formed a squad that will take the country to greater heights against some of Asia’s finest teams in the World Cup Qualifiers.

Now on his second year at the helm of the team, the German-American mentor finally found the best mix of players to banner the country’s bid particularly in the qualifying tournament for football’s most prestigious tournament.

Working closely with Azkals manager Dan Palami, Dooley infused some fresh talent to the team by calling up Luke Woodland, Stephan Palla, Kevin Ingreso and Iain Ramsay for the games against Bahrain and Yemen last June.

The entry of the four players coincided with the return of Stephan Schrock, Neil Etheridge and Javier Patino as well as the resurgence of Misagh Bahadoran who already has two goals in the first two matches.

Midfielder Manny Ott has also improved immensely under Dooley’s reign, while Phil Younghusband remained effective even after the coach switched him from striker to midfielder.

The Azkals’ results have been impressive with a 2-1 home win over Bahrain followed by a 2-0 conquest of Yemen in Qatar in the first two match days in Group H.

“We have a unique team with unique players for each position and they all have unbelievable skill,” said Dooley, who captained the United States in the 1998 World Cup in France.

“What I’m asking from the players is to go 90 minutes with 100 percent of their skill level but always on the collective.”

Dooley added, “We’re trying to build a team and in the last two games we saw that we created the team that we need to be successful.”

The Philippines faces Uzbekistan on Sept. 8 at Philippine Sports Stadium, before flying out for a couple of away matches in Pyongyang against North Korea on Oct. 8 and in Manama for a duel against Bahrain five days later.

The top team in the group will secure a place in the third round together with the four best second placers from among the eight brackets. The 12 teams in the third round will also gain automatic slots to the AFC Asian Cup in 2019. Asia has been allotted four spots in the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia which means the top two from each of the brackets in the third round will qualify.

PHILIPPINE FOOTBALL TEAM “FAST-PROGRESSING”

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 FIFA.com 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 www.ticketworld.com.ph. Tickets are at P531.80 for Price Zone 1, P331.14 for Price Zone 2 and P125.40 for Price Zone 3.
