The Philippines camp have stated they are looking for redemption after the 2010 AFF Cup's semi-final exit to Indonesia. Team coach Michael Weiss has continually improved the team by bringing in players with Filipino blood from all over the world.

Dennis Cagara and Jerry Lucena, who missed the exhibition match against Malaysia on Friday, will join up with the Azkals. The Younghusband brothers, Philip and James, as well as first-choice goalkeeper Neil Etheridge, will also be back with the squad.

Meanwhile for Indonesia, coach Nil Maizar named a 20-man squad to face the host. The Former Semen Padang trainer is convinced that his team will be able to repeat the good performance that they showed against Italian giants Inter on May 27.

Titus Bonai, and Patrich Wanggai will be in the starting line-up, and will be supported by the Dutch-born playmaker Irfan Bachim.
