MANILA--The Philippine Azkals opened their FIFA World Cup Qualifiers campaign with two impressive victories over Bahrain and Yemen.

And Coach Tom Dooley is too proud of his boys that he may only do a little tweak to his roster.

In an interview with Dugout Philippines on Sunday night, Dooley said that he will keep almost all of his footballers who played against Bahrain and Yemen.

However, Dooley also told Dugout Philippines that he could bring in one or two players who were not called up in the previous lineup to the training camp for the Sept. 8 showdown against Uzbekistan.

Dooley, who has been regularly in UFL games, watched the pivotal showdown between Ceres and Global. Both clubs are loaded with past and present national team players.
