While the Philippines did play with more determination today, they still suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of the mighty Serbians, who look set to make a deep run in the World Cup. Gilas Pilipinas will now be looking to restore some of their pride as they face Angola in a tie they should win on paper. Serbia, on the other hand, will play Italy to decide who tops Group D.
