Our prediction for this World Cup 2022 match:
China will be looking to retain their spot in top two when they take on Philippines in a highly-anticipated World Cup qualifier. Li Tie’s troops did well to crush Guam 7-0 in their last qualifying game, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Philippines. Espanyol attacker Wu Lei, who scored a brace in the crushing of Guam, will be one of the men to watch in the home team.
Scott Cooper’s men, on the other hand, have been having their ups and downs in the qualifiers for the showpiece tournament. Philippines are eyeing their first ever win over China, but seeing that Li Tie’s charges are a real force to be reckoned with at home, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. China defenders should have experienced attacker Stephan Shrock at bay.
