SVEN FACING ASIAN CUP CHALLENGE

Former England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson is currently in the United Arab Emirates as his Philippines side compete in the 2019 Asian Cup.

Having narrowly lost their opening game 1-0 to highly-fancied South Korea, Eriksson will be hoping to get something from their second game against China today (Friday), before the final Group C clash against Kyrgyzstan on Wednesday 16 January.

This competition comes off the back of the AFF Championship, which saw Sven lead his side to the semi-finals, before defeat against the eventual winners, Vietnam.
