Younghusbands get the all-clear for Dream Match

By Karlo Sacamos

PHIL and James Younghusband have assured that there will be no scheduling conflicts this time between their national team duty and their off-field commitments.
The celebrated brothers once again headline the Clear Dream Match, the same charity all-star football game last year which caused a scheduling conflict with the Azkals' US training camp that led to the Younghusbands being left out of the Peace Cup roster.
A year later, the Filipino-British booters are happy that there will be such problems this time.
“There’s no scheduling conflict this time,” James Younghusband told Spin.ph on Saturday during the Clear Dream Match Draft at the SM Megamall Events Center.
“Football is still developing in the country. Obviously there are different schedules, different goals, and it’s about merging those goals together, and everyone uniting, forgetting about the politics and trying to get the same goal to develop football in the country,” James added.
Last year, the Clear Dream Match coincided with the Azkals’ US training camp in August, which the Younghusbands missed. As a consequence, they were excluded from the Peace Cup roster the following month.
“We learned things from last year,” Phil said. “The communication with boss Dan (Palami), coach (Michael) Weiss, the PFF, our management, Clear, and everyone has been amazing this year, so it should avoid any (conflicts) like that.”
“They’ve been very understanding,” added Phil, the country’s top international scorer. “I’m sure they know what this Clear Dream Match does to football. And we owe a lot to the Azkals and we’re also looking forward to the game against Indonesia.”
The Azkals, who climbed this month to their best-ever world ranking at 141st, return to action on Wednesday when they face Indonesia at the opponent’s turf in a Fifa friendly that the Younghusbands are going to make.
“I’m very thankful to the PFF,” James said. “They didn’t schedule (an Azkals activity on the same day as the Clear event). They’ve scheduled at least a game (earlier) to get the team together and give an opportunity to the Under-23 players to show what they’ve got and show that they should be playing in the SEA Games.”
OJ Porteria, Jeff Christiaens, Marwin Angeles, Mark Hartmann, Joshua Beolya, Patrick Deyto, Raymark Fernandez, Paolo Bugas, and Amani Aguinaldo are the U-23 standouts who have been called up against Indonesia.

  3. I just wrote a recommendation about this Independent trekking Mr Sanjib which was the one i chose to do Everest Base Camp and Gokyo, I went to Nepal in Feb-March 2014 and I would totally recommend them. Check it out and read below what i also wrote about them. Enjoy your time in Nepal :) http://www.nepalguideinfo.com sanjib-adhikari@hotmail.com I did Everest Base camp and Gokyo with the Independent trekking guide Mr. Sanjib and after such a nice trek I can only recommend the service that Sanjib and his team provided it. Experienced guide, a clear itinerary with lots of room for your own personal pace, a personalized approach: you go to him as a client and you leave as a friend. All this and more make the service of this trek, out of the rest. Prices are very good and the quality of all the services, were excellent. We got only great rooms and they always make sure, we have a nice view from our room (probably this is not always possible, but I like that Sanjib and Raj. were taking time in such a details to make his clients happy) He also advise you in all the matters of the trek and more importantly he was very clear about what you get. Many companies will promise you all kind of things even if they know is not possible (flying to Lukla for example is one of them or how many days you can reach certain altitude being safe from AMS) There’s a lot of companies in Kathmandu and I know how difficult and overwhelming the search for the right one can be, but if you’re reading this and looking for a person who can make your treks in Nepal smooth and a very enjoyable experience… go to Sanjib and he’ll handle the rest ☺ Thanks a lot Sanjib, for organizing my trek in Nepal and if I come back someday I definitely know where to go for treks!!
