The Philippine Azkals settled for a 1-1 draw against Maldives as they concluded their campaign in the second round of the FIFA World Cup and Asian Cup Joint qualifiers in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates early Wednesday.

Capping off all of its six games in Group A, the national squad finished in the third place of the standings, with a total of 13 points from its 3-2-2 record.

With veteran striker Angel Guirado putting the team ahead with a thunderous strike in the 19th minute, the Maldivians quickly fought back and boosted their intensity as Ali Fasir eluded Azkals to put themselves in the scoreline.

Despite the disappointing finish, the Filipinos have already guaranteed their slot for the next round of the Asian Cup qualifiers in November.
