The Philippine Azkals are currently looking to qualify to the 2019 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup when it goes up against Nepal on November 14, 2017 at the ANFA Complex in Kathmandu, Nepal.
The Azkals are currently top of Group F in the third and final round of qualification, two points ahead of both Yemen and Tajikistan. Nepal is in last place with only a point.
A win over Nepal will be enough to secure qualification to the 2019 AFC Asian Cup for the very first time.
In their first meeting last March, the Philippines defeated Nepal, 4-1, through goals courtesy of Iain Ramsay, Phil Younghusband (2), and Javier Patiño at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.
