Scenarios for the Azkals in Group A

As it stands, GROUP A looks as follows :

             W       D          L            Points

PAL      1        0             0           3
MYA    0        1             0           1
PHL      0        1             0           1
BANG  0        0             1           0


The next games are as follows : 

23 March 2011 15:30
Philippines - PALESTINE

23 March 2011 18:00
BANGLADESH-MYANMAR

25 March 2011 15:30
BANGLADESH - Philippines

25 March 2011 15:30
MYANMAR-PALESTINE

IF we draw vs Palestine, and Myanmar wins, say 2-0 against Bangladesh, the table would look like : 

             W       D          L            Points

PAL      1        1             0           4
MYA    1        1             0           4
PHL      0        2             0           2
BANG  0        0             2           0

This would leave us in a very, very precarious situation, as both Palestine and Myanmar play their last game against each other. 

IF they played to a draw in that one, and IF we win against Bangladesh in the last day, three teams would end up with five (5) points each, and it would be down to goal difference from the aforementioned three teams. We can then only automatically go through if EITHER of them win and we beat Bangladesh. Meaning, it is beyond our control.

What IS within our control, however, is tonight's game. Dare I say it? WE MUST BEAT PALESTINE to make our chances of qualification that much higher.

  vs     

IF WE WIN Tonight, and Myanmar wins vs Bangladesh :

             W       D          L            Points

MYA    1        1             0           4
PHL      1        1             0           4
PAL      1        0             1           3
BANG  0        0             2           0


We control our own qualification destiny going to the last game against Bangladesh.

Exciting times for Azkal fans.
The Azkals could do us a favor by getting all three points vs Palestine.
Lest we crave for some cardiac moments on Friday.
