Can Scott Cooper and Dan Palami guide the Philippines to AFF Suzuki Cup success?

The Philippines have a first-ever Asian Cup to look forward to in January but, as important as the continental tournament is, it will have to wait. The AFF Suzuki Cup is the priority.

For Thailand, a team that has come to dominate the region with two successive AFF triumphs, it is completely correct to see the...

Cardiff City keeper Neil Etheridge can inspire next generation of SEA footballers

Cardiff City's Neil Etheridge celebrates after a Championship win against Bolton.
Neil Etheridge could be a starting goalkeeper in the Premier League next season if Cardiff earn promotion.

Neil Etheridge has played in front of 90,000 roaring fans in Jakarta, but the Philippines No. 1 has an even bigger game on Sunday.

Cardiff City are 90 minutes away from the English Premier League, with three points at home against Reading enough to guarantee a return to the top flight they departed in 2014. And there will be plenty of fans in the Philippines hoping that the Bluebirds can do it.
