Makati City, Philippines - 10 October 2013. Global Football Club once again places national interest over club glory as it releases eleven players called up to the Philippine National Football Team. The Philippine Football Peace Cup will be held in Bacolod City. The tournament is scheduled on FIFA international match dates from 11-15 October.
Senior team members Marwin Angeles, Misagh Bahadoran, Jerry Barbaso, Jeffrey Christiaens, Jason De Jong, Angel Guirado, Juani Guirado, Mark Hartmann, Paul Mulders and Ed Sacapano will not be able to suit up for the People’s Club in the UFL Preseason Final scheduled tonight. Amani Aguinaldo was also released by the club for the AFC Under-19 Qualifiers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
As injuries and sanctions to other players left the club with only seven eligible to suit up, Global has requested the United Football League to postpone and reschedule the match. With the club’s motion denied, Global regrets that due to the aforementioned circumstances, we will be unable to field a team tonight.
