Fil-Brit booters pledge
support to Phil football
National team mainstays Philip and James Younghusband aim to nurture and develop a new generation of Filipino football players with the launch of The Younghusband Football Academy.
The two brothers are products of the successful Chelsea Football Club program in England and rose through its ranks, giving them the skills and experience that proved pivotal in the Azkals’ phenomenal campaign in last year’s Asean Suzuki Cup.
“There is a great feeling when one plays for the team and for the country, but Phil and I get a different kind of fulfillment seeing how our students learn,” James said. “The Filipino kids pick up so quickly.”
