Borlongan still hopeful despite of 2 defeats

CAGAYAN de Oro’s ace booter JB Borlongan remains hopeful despite of two straight losses suffered by the Philippine Under (U)-23 team in the ongoing Asian Football Confederation (AFC) U23 qualifier in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The former Abba’s Orchard School winger played in the two matches against Japan and China and noted that the two teams were just too good for them specially Japan. “Japan is just too good, they are in the different level to us,” he said. They lost to Japan 0-7 in their first match and then 0-2 to China. Despite of the loses JB, son of Greg and Marjou Chabon Borlongan, is still hopeful that they can end the tournament in a high note when they play Cambodia Sunday, July 23. The match against Cambodia will be a good test for them as they might meet them again in the South East Asian Games next month in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They could not take the Cambodians too lightly as the host earned a scoreless draw in their meeting against China. Aside from Borlongan, two more players from Misamis Oriental, Troy Limbo, and Richard Talaroc of Davao Aguilas are playing for the Philippine U23 team. Most members of the Philippine team are playing with the different clubs in the ongoing Philippine Football League.
