Vice-Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson yesterday expressed his optimism that Negros Occidental will be successful in its bid for hosting the 2021 Palarong Pambansa.

As far as readiness, there is no question, Lacson, who led a team from Negros Occidental in making the bid Monday in Manila, said.

Capiz is also making a bid for hosting the Palarong Pambansa 2021.

Azkals bow out of Asian Cup,
Schrock scores consolation goal

A superb hat-trick from Vitalij Lux gave Kyrgyz Republic their first ever AFC Asian Cup win, and a fighting chance of appearing in the tournament's knockout stage as the Central Asians defeated the Philippines 3-1 at Rashid Stadium last night.

Lux scored once in the first half, and twice in the second to seal a historic, and crucial three points for Alexander Krestinin's side, who finished third in Group C behind behind Korea Republic and China PR.

While Kyrgyz Republic must wait another 24 hours to discover if they are one of the four third-placed teams to advance to the Round of 16, the Azkals fate has been sealed, with three successive defeats bringing their campaign to an end, although Stephan Shröck did make history by scoring their maiden AFC Asian Cup goal.
