I never thought a LOSS by our national team could actually make me PROUD to be Pinoy… but the Akzals’ defeat at the hands (erm… feet?) of the Indonesian National Football Team actually did!
Imagine, before this latest tournament, our collective football-related national memory was composed of regular “13-1” and “14-0” drubbings at the hands (feet nga eh!) of our more talented neighbors.
But this time, our team actually beat Vietnam 2-0! Incredible!
That’s like saying that the Republic of Nauru beat New Zealand in Rugby, or that Guam beat Sri Lanka in Cricket, or that Brunei Darussalam beat the United States in Baseball, or that the Philippines beat Vietnam in Football…
WAIT! We did that na pala! 🙂
Yun oh! Merry Krismas sa lahat!
