MANILA, Philippines—Philippine Azkals coach Stewart Corridor cried foul over the penalty whistled on Amani Aguinaldo of their essential AFF Suzuki Cup match Tuesday evening.
The penalty led to the match clincher by Teerasil Dangda within the 78th minute that sealed the Philippines’ destiny.
“The penalty was very doubtful,” stated Corridor within the post-match presser.
“Clearly, it’s the deciding issue. I’d wish to see it a number of instances. However my gamers weren’t completely satisfied in regards to the resolution and from the place I appeared, it was very, very innocuous.”
The loss booted the Azkals out of semifinals rivalry.
Dangda, the Thai skipper, completed with a brace after scoring the opening aim within the twenty sixth.
Patrick Reichelt knotted the rely within the 57th which might’ve been sufficient for the Philippines to remain within the hunt for a semis spot had it not been for the controversial penalty.
The Azkals play Myanmar on Saturday to finish their marketing campaign.
