Published

Naturalized striker Bienvenido Marañon scored a hat trick as the Philippine Azkals wrapped up their campaign in the AFF Suzuki Cup in Group B with a 3-2 win over Myanmar late Saturday, 18 December, in Singapore.

Marañon displayed his scoring prowess in the first half, sending the ball in the back of the net in the 16th, 19th and 45th minutes which gave the Filipinos enough cushion to weather Myanmar’s late fight back.

The Azkals got a scare in the second half after Myanmar’s Htet Pywo Wai sneaked in goals in the 74th and 86th minutes before the Filipinos recovered defensively to preserve the win.

The Azkals closed their campaign with a 2-0-2 win-draw-loss record.
