BACLOD CITY: Sharp Malay Mail striker Saifuddin Alias goal gave his team a
winning start in the Philippines Cup soccer tournament at the Taglaun
Sports Comlex Stadium when they beat the hosts 1-0 yesterday.
The Phillipines, who needed a win to enhance their chances of
reaching the final, found the going tough against an equally determined
Malay Mail. Malaysia's representatives in the tournament.
Malay Mail were in total control although the poor ground and a
bouncy ball did not suit them.
For all their domination, Malay Mail deservingly scored in the 28th
minute through a thunderous shot by Saifuddin.
Malay Mail take on Brunei tonight. A win will virtually put them in
the final on May 12.
