  • Phil, James in top form

    by Jack Biantan I can not imagine the Philippine Azkals without the two good looking Younghusband brothers Phil and James.  The dynamic siblings have been playing for the Philippine National team since they debuted in the South East Asian Games (SEAGames) in Bacolod City in 2005.
