LA Galaxy vs Phil. Azkals

December 3, Saturday
Rizal Memorial Football Stadium

Missing The Money Shot By  Milliseconds

- Beckham's Kick

As I see the ball go to David, I quickly point my lens at him but
 am late by a millisecond to catch the ball in frame.

that puts LA Galaxy ahead by 1 -

 - Am following the ball as it [in the wink of an eye] goes in,
but again - I'm a millisecond late.  This would have been a better shot if I caught the ball in frame even if I did get Beckham's kick [above]
with the ball in frame.

A few more shots from tha match:

- David vs James -
[above & below]

The Azkals have some decent chances in the 1st Half.
Here's a 3-frame sequence of  a Phil Younghusband miss.

Phil Younghusband finally gets one in for the Azkals.

- Lightning Strikes Twice -
LA Galaxy scores its 2nd Goal complements of Mike Magee [#18].
Once more - I click my shutter milliseconds late -
It's only del Rosario [#4] and Magee on the image - the ball is out of frame.

- Landon Donovan -

- Sean Franklin -

Anton del Rosario [#4]  - Mike Magee

- Frankie Hejduck -

I hardly take images in the 2nd half where the game is dominated by the LA Galaxy. Nobody really expects tha Azkals to win but the Filipino fans  hope for a respectable final tally.    It is [Galaxy-6  Azkals-1]

All the photos above were taken in the 1st Half.  Frankly, the few 2nd half photos I took are not blogworthy, as far as I'm concerned. 

Who knows, maybe in the next year or so more world class football teams will play here in Manila.  If and when - I Hope to get the money shots.
