The Philippines and Chile cap their two-game friendly Tuesday night (Wednesday in Manila) at the Municipal de La Pintana in the capital Santiago.
After a 1-1 standoff the first time they rumbled a few days ago, both squads would want no less than a victory as they go separate ways.
Ranked No. 53 in the world and already assured of a set in next year’s FIFA World Cup in New Zealand, the Filipinas banked on Hali Long in the 26th minute to draw first blood.
The Chileans, behind Sonya Keefe, retaliated and levelled the score with a header in the 84th.
The two-match friendly was the first on South American soil by a Philippine squad that has already been bunched with New Zealand, Norway and Switzerland in Group A.
“It’s really great momentum to play against a South American team, getting to know different aspects of football around the world,” Long said.
“The World Cup is not easy. No games are taken for granted, especially New Zealand who’s playing at home.”
Expected to play today for the Filipinas are the likes of Long, Olivia McDaniel and Sara Eggesvik.
The Filipinas have also previously played against New Zealand and Costa Rica in preparation for the World Cup.
