Global Cebu FC has signed up nifty attackers Curt Jordan Dizon and Daniel Gadia to beef up its lineup for the upcoming Philippines Football League (PFL) wars.
Gadia is the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Season 78 Most Valuable Player in the men’s football tournament. He signed the contract with Global Cebu FC last Tuesday.
The 22-year old midfielder played for the University of the Philippines (UP) Fighting Maroons during his collegiate years. In early 2013, he got drafted for the national team to play in the ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Under-19 Youth Championship and proceeded for the 2014 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup Under-19 Championship qualifiers.
In 2014, Gadia played in the United Football League (UFL) where he saw action with Pachanga Diliman Football Club before transferring in 2016 to the defunct FC Meralco Manila which was then known as Loyola Sparks.
Meanwhile, the 23-year old Dizon confirmed his transfer to Global Cebu last Wednesday.
Dizon molded his football talent at the Crystal Palace youth academy and by playing with Gimnastica Segoviana CF in Spain during the early part of his football career.
In 2014, he got the call of duty from the national team and decided to side with Global at the same time.
In 2015, he joined the national team’s under-23 squad in their campaign for the 2016 AFC U-23 Championship qualifiers. He also transferred to the Loyola Sparks this year.
“I can’t wait to get out there,” Dizon shared on Global Cebu FC’s official facebook page. “I want to thank Global for giving me this opportunity and hopefully we can continue to make history,” he added.
