Philippines Football news
9 YEARS !
Funny to think that this is another of Anto Gonzales magic but few only knows that his starting eleven are all perennial RP team youth players who belongs to middle and upper class family. Miyagi, Borlongan, Lapas, Yared, Patangan, Casambre, Sanciangco, Dayan and Abraham all comes from the original Little Azkals when they were 12-13 yrs old. They had battle experience in Italy against mighty Serie A youth teams. They also had been to Japan, Malaysia, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos representing tha Philippines before. There other team mates are Diamante and Romero-Salas who now plays under DLSU, Colina of NU and M. Vergara at UE. Other companions (Lovitos, Ebarle, Hamdan, were playing in NCAA under College of St. Benilde. Two players still in senior high are S. Vergara of DLSU-Zobel and Genco of KayaFC. Troy Limbo the only homegrown player to play in Europe right now (Chesterfield FC). So there you have it, the majority of talented players are playing under UP and its no surprise they are on top right now and Anto is in cloud 9 right now.
Woah!!!! Cool to know that they are the original Little Azkals. Time flies so fast, btw sir what year po nabuo yang original little Azkals? Iba pa sila doon sa nagawan ng movie noon na pinadala sa UK right?
The original little azkals was formed last 2011 managed by Richard Montayre back then and majority of them are born 1998 while only players were born 1999 such as Genco and S. Vergara of Zobel. Pabualan and Plotena were also members back then in the training camp but was later cut due to documents and Palarong Pambansa conflict. While the little azkals that was sent to UK was under Albert Almendralejo , mostly born 2002 and is under the PFF program to reach the U17 World Cup Qualifier in 2019.
