A last minute goal allowed Philippines’ Kaya Football Club – Iloilo to salvage a 1-1 draw against PSM Makassar of Indonesia in the group stage of the 2019 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup on Tuesday, April 2.

During the game at the Pakansari Stadium in West Java, Indonesia, the home team’s Finnish forward Eero Markkanen scored the first goal at the 56th minute after being fouled by Camelo Tacusalme of Kaya, and being awarded a penalty kick.

Marwin Angeles rescued the Philippine team from the throes of defeat after scoring a goalĀ in the 90th minute of the game.

While both teams have one win, two draws, and zero losses in the tournament, Kaya, currently, tops PSM in Group H due to the goal difference in their previous games.

Only the top team of each group will be guaranteed a slot in the knockout stage of the 2019 AFC Cup

The Philippine squad will host a rematch against the Indonesian team on April 17 at the Panaad Stadium in Bacolod, before flying Singapore to wrap up their campaign in the group stage with another match against Home United Football Club.
