Milojevic: We have to win
Philippines under 22 (U-22) head coach Goran Milojevic has labelled his side’s SEA Games 2019 Group A match against Malaysia tomorrow as a do-or-die encounter.
He said the 1-2 defeat to Myanmar yesterday has left them with no other option but to overcome Malaysia in order to help revive their chances of progressing to the next round.
“We played better in the second half and created chances but they (Myanmar) were the ones who got the winning goal. This will be a valuable lesson for us ahead of our clash against Malaysia,” he said.
The 52-year-old Serbian also added that he will make some tactical changes when facing Malaysia because he believes that they have many talented players.
“We are analysing the footage of both our matches here so far and we plan to overcome Malaysia by playing to our strengths.
“We respect Malaysia, but we are in a situation where we have to win,” said Milojevic.
