The Philippines men's national football team scored a dominant 3-1 win over Laos to claim an outright seat in the semifinals of the Bangabandhu Gold Cup in Bangladesh on Wednesday.
Jovin Bedic, Misagh Bahadoran and Javier Gayoso each scored a goal for the Azkals, even as the Laotians were able to make a late game goal.
The Philippines will next face the hosts, also part of Group B. The other group is composed of Nepal, Palestine and Tajikistan.
The competition organized by the Bangladesh Football Federation serves as the Azkals' preparation for both the AFF Suzuki Cup 2018 and the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019.
