With the growing popularity of local football spurred on with the escalation of our Azkals National team and the efforts of the UFL Cup, David Beckham has arrived to show his support.
In very succinct words Mr. Beckham expressed the sentiment of many die hard local football fans, which is to "foster the children of the sport."
We are a nation that has the talent to someday build an Asian powerhouse, it all begins at the simplest level. In the humble fields of our local provinces to the best pitches of our top universities. Mentor the children and build Pinoy football from the grassroots.
This is just a teaser, more coverage and more photos published shortly. Stay tuned for the match coverage this December 3, 2011 at Rizal Memorial Complex and the Photo Essay feature for Mabuhay Magazine.
