Anton Del Rosario and the rest of Philippine Azkals have arrived in Kuwait morning of Wednesday, July 20, three days before their first encounter against the host country for the First Leg of the 2nd Round of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifier at the Mohammad Al Hamad Stadium on Saturday, July 23.

Although the Azkals lost twice in the tune-up matches versus Bahrain's olympic team Under-23 (U-23) last Saturday and Tuesday, Anton Del Rosario, Chieffy Caligdong and teammates reportedly said they are ready to face the tougher Kuwaiti footballers.

In his Facebook account and during interviews, Caligdong said their matches against Bahrain went well. The Ilonggo player added that the test matches gave the Azkals the chance to adjust to extreme heat in the middle east in preparation for the upcoming match this weekend.

After July 23, the Philippine Azkals will fly back to Manila to prepare for the Second Leg of the qualifier game against Kuwait which will take place at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium on Thursday, July 28.
