Who let the dogs out?

The Philippine National Football Team, also known as the Askals (Filipino for street dogs), has just won their game against Mongolia 2-0 (a few hours ago, in the city of Bacolod, Negros Occidental). For a team that was ranked 171st by FIFA in 2007, the team is undergoing a minor renaissance. Notably, it beat defending champion Vietnam, 2-0, in the group stage of the 2010 AFF Suzuki Cup. It also tied heavily-favoured Singapore before bowing out in the semis to the eventual champions, Indonesia.
