Cooper likes first look at Azkals

first_imgPhoto By Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.NETRIFFA, Bahrain—It took new Philippines coach Scott Cooper a few more minutes after his first match to learn what could be the best quality of the squad he brought here for his first training camp.Skipper Phil Younghusband scored his 51st international goal as the Azkals settled for a 1-1 draw against Bahrain, which salvaged a last-gasp equalizer in a friendly in hot and humid conditions at National Stadium Thursday night.ADVERTISEMENT But while Cooper is still in a period of putting in the system that he wants his squad to play in preparation for the AFF Suzuki Cup and Asian Cup in the next few months, he did find out the character of his team after the draw.“I go inside the dugout and I see the faces were so disappointed it looked like they lost and that is a good sign,” said Cooper.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSTim Cone still willing to coach Gilas but admits decision won’t be ‘simple yes or no’“If you look at our squad, [there are] a number of players who were missing and a new coach and a new system of play. That’s why I think to feel disappointed to draw is a good sign.”Cooper only had a couple of training sessions to work with his squad, which featured returning players Stephan Schrock and Angel Guirado, Cardiff City goalkeeper Neil Etheridge and newcomer Amin Nazari, who played the holding midfield role. The English coach experimented with a three-man defense made up of Amani Aguinaldo, Carlie de Murga and Luke Woodland.
