Stephan Schrock hopes move from Germany to Manila will help Azkals

Philippines midfielder Stephan Schrock
Stephan Schrock play for Germany national youth teams before making his Azkals' debut in 2011.

More than a few eyebrows were raised earlier this month when it was announced that Philippines' international Stephan Schrock was moving from European football to the Philippines, joining league champions Ceres La Salle FC, on loan from Germany's SpVgg Greuther Fürth.

After all, the 29-year-old Schrock is still at the peak of his footballing career. Heading to Manila -- where playing standards arguably lag behind some Southeast Asian counterparts -- might seem a step backwards for the...

Newly promoted Penang hungry for MSL success with new imports

Penang coach Tiago Jacksen
Penang head coach Jacksen Tiago hopes his side can cope with the extra demands of the Malaysia Super League.

PENANG -- This popular tourist destination may be famous around the world for the quality of its street eats, but the food available outside the old city stadium is still mostly standard football fare: burgers and kebabs. Those wanting Laksa, Char Kway Teow or a Nyonya curry may be disappointed, but the fans were just here for the football. A recent preseason friendly with Kuala Lumpur FA was an appetiser for the main course -- a first season back in the Malaysia Super League (MSL) -- so with the...

Thailand's 2018 World Cup propects underscored by domestic challenges

Thai supporters were delighted to see their national team fare well in World Cup qualifying in 2015.

Supporters of Thailand's national team have much to look forward to in 2016 as they remain on course to progress in the 2018 AFC World Cup qualifiers.

Fans of the domestic game may not be as excited about the year ahead after 2015's stop-start Thai Premier League (TPL) ended with Buriram United as runaway winners and unresolved issues regarding promotion, relegation and AFC Champions League (ACL) qualifying.

Still, negative memories tend to fade fast in football and by the time February's big kickoff...

World Cup qualifying draws against China give Hong Kong reason to dream

Hong Kong vs. China
Hong Kong fans came out in full force to back their heroes in World Cup qualification in 2015.

The last 12 months have been turbulent for Hong Kong, both on and off the pitch, but a pair of scoreless draws have gone close to scuttling China's hopes of making their first appearance at the World Cup finals since 2002.

The two surprise results, home and away, in Russia 2018 qualifying, gave Hong Kong's representative team a big boost, despite relatively meagre resources.

The game continues to suffer from an identity crisis, with the influence of foreign leagues and a lack of quality at home...

Chinese football looks for Rio Olympics' redemption in 2016

Guangzhou Evergrande won the 2015 AFC Champions League for their second title in three years.

Over the last 12 months, the profile of Chinese football has continued to rise as greater amounts of investment find their way into the sport thanks, largely, to the spotlight shone onto the game by president Xi Jinpeng.

But while the money has flowed in and the number of foreign players in the Chinese Super League has increased, the national team remains the sick man of Asian football, even as Guangzhou Evergrande claimed a second continental club title in three seasons.

Fans have had little to...
