Five things to watch vs. Paraguay


Dooley's new system for Azkals takes shape ahead of World Cup qualifiers

Suzuki Cup semifinalists Philippines prepared for upcoming World Cup qualifiers with a friendly against Bahrain.

After a quiet start to the year following a hectic 2014, the Philippines returned to international action with a 2-1 friendly defeat away to Bahrain on Monday night as coach Thomas Dooley tried a new system.

The coming months will see the small matter of qualifying matches for 2018 FIFA World Cup and the 2019 AFC Asian Cup. All teams will be guaranteed eight matches, including four at home.

So, here are three things to watch out for the Azkals for the rest of 2015:

Jonathan dos Santos, Raul Jimenez excel for Mexico against Paraguay

A goal after just three minutes from Mexico's Eduardo Herrera would be all El Tri would need to secure a 1-0 win over Paraguay at Arrowhead Stadium.

Mexico collected another narrow 1-0 win, this time against Paraguay, but the performance was a world of difference from the victory against Ecuador last Saturday.

On Tuesday night, El Tri came out flying against Paraguay and played with the kind of energy that would typically be seen in a World Cup Qualifying match. The motivation for a spot in one of Mexico's two summer squads was highly apparent with multiple fringe El Tri options playing at their very best.

Paraguay eventually gained possession...
