Villaflor: Virus boots RP Under-14 out of Asian tourney

ONCE again, Philippine football lands in the national and international news for the wrong reasons.

This time, the bad news has something to do with the Under-14 Philippine football team in a no-win situation against the Influenza A(H1N1) virus.

The RP boys’ squad was excited to compete against 12 other football teams at the 1st Asian Youth Games.

Instead, the team ended up being quarantined at a Singapore resort since Sunday. And they got the really bad news yesterday morning: they are officially out of the games.

Football in Ipil, Surigao

I was watching Sunday's football tournament in Ipil football field, not far from Mabua Beach outside Surigao City.

Two teams in U14 and two in U16. Ipil FC won U14 and Surigao National High won U16. Ipil got a good grass field and i hope they will use the field for football matches in the future.

I had also the chance to play two friendlies on Saturday and Sunday with Surigao FA officials and some players from Surigao. One of them was former U21 National team player Romnick Echin from Surigao .

Funny but very hot to play at 3 pm in Philippines !

Back to Dinagat Islands and no more football this vacation.

Philippines in AFF Futsal Semifinals

The Philippines, who had conceded a 3-0 defeat to hosts Vietnam yesterday, bounced back in their second game against Timor Leste in Group B here at the Phu Tho Stadium to race to an 8-2 lead at the half.

The wily Misagh Bahadoran nailed a personal best with four goals (4th, 5th, 5th and 10th minute) as Ali Go (2nd and 4th) and Edward Mallari (2nd and 3rd) contributed the others just before the break.

“We played a lot better yesterday but at least today, we managed to allow some of the younger players the chance to have more time in the game,” said Sedigh Esmaeil, the head coach for the Philippines.

“Now, we will have two days to prepare the team for the semi-final game which is likely to be Thailand.“

The second half saw Jason De Jong completing the rout with goals in the 23rd and 24th minute.

PFF coaches prepare for leagues

PHILIPPINES: More than 50 coaches are taking part in two ‘C’ Certificate courses in the Philippines as part of the Vision Asia strategic plan to develop football in two key areas of the country. One course, conducted by AFC instructor Marlon M Maro, is taking place in Manila, featuring 24 coaches from Metro Manila and the Luzon area. Fellow AFC instructor AFC instructor Jose Ariston P. Caslib is taking charge of another course in Cebu City for 28 young coaches. The Vision Philippines plan calls for a Filipino Premier League and a Cebu Provincial League to be launched later this year. The courses will enable the coaches to improve their knowledge and skills so they can take charge of teams for the two leagues. Vision Asia is also urging the Philippines Football Federation to start leagues in two other main regions – Visayas, which encompasses Cebu, and Mindanao.
