9:12:00 AM

Recently, the fame and prestige of James and Phil Younghusband has grown very much in just a short span of time and same with the sudden uplift of interest of young blooded sports-minded kids into football.  It has truly become a sensation.  I'm not well versed with the names of the players but I know football since I was a kid and as far as I know the game kickball rooted from the football.  One more thing, when I was a kid and until I was a teenager I only watched their games on television.

Since the Philippine football team are becoming well known with their winnings, the team manager Mr. Alvin Caranza U17-19 aims to have a new breed of Teen Azkals that starts with good foundation that's why they are going to have the upcoming Teen Azkals National Football Selection which will be held in two locations, one in UP Diliman, Quezon City on July 7 and 8, 2012 which is for the NCR Selection and the other one is for the Philippine Team Selection on August 4-12, 2012 in San Carlos City, Negros Occidental Football Grounds.

So, for the moms, dads, relatives, schools and organizations if you know your kids or someone you know displays a strong interest in football please do encourage them to participate on the said selection venues.  It will for sure help them a lot and help the country as well.

During the blogger's night in Cafe Lupe, Antipolo speakers shares their talk and insights about football and road safety.

Manager Mr. Alvin Carranza said that supporting the age group will keep the momentum forward.  He also bring forth his vast influence and business networks to make this league exciting and successful.

One of the speaker Mr Ebong Joson of the Philippine Football Federation coach talks about the European Culture and Football Management.  He also disclosed that Panaad is one of the best place for Football Tournament with regards to security, venue and capacity.  He then explained the great difference between height and skills and the culture and language of football.

Coach Cleng Cacacho who coaches for an International School talks about more local exposure and more games in the local level.  He pinpoints that with Europeans they got many clubs and games.  He further explains the difference of a women's team and men's team.  Women's team requires a certain level of training and pampering.

Mr. Atoy Sta. Cruz also made a simple talk about advocating road safety and he explains the issue regarding motorists having an early warning device place or in tact in all vehicles which is needed when having a car problem.

After the talks the much awaited raffle was conducted.  An all expense Tagaytay and Taal trip won by Carlo Camilo Valenzona and Ms. Grace Nicolas' daughter while the all expense Trip to Bacolod won bby Florencio Jusay and Dennison Uy.
