A Famous Philippines Victory

The Philippines aren't really a sporting nation. Other than Manny Pacquiao, there's not much to cheer around in the international sports scene.

Ranked 151st in the FIFA Rankings and barely qualfying for the 8-team AFF Suzuki Cup SE Asian football tournament, they pulled off the shock of all shocks. Beating host and defending champions Vietnam in Hanoi!

It's worth noting the Philippines are big on basketball - huge, actually. It's only a matter of time before a Filipino player makes it big in the NBA.

I doubt it. I've seen Filipino basketball. It's awful.
