Philippines National football team coach, Michael Weiss says the third place match against Palestine on Monday is like final for them.
Speaking with the press at Dasrath stadium, Coach Weiss said, "We are treating this match as final. We want to make people happy back home. People are supporting us very well and we don't want to make them feel bad".
"We are taking this match very seriously. Three important players; Savio, James and Angel Guirado are returning so it has given us more strength for the third place match".
"We were unlucky against Turkmenistan in the semifinal match", Weiss said, "The defense line was not that up to mark in the late hours but we have rectified our mistakes. We don't have Neil with us but the second choice goalie is ready for the match".
"I am not worried about the Neil suspension", weiss added.
