Thanks to the universities, Filipinos now enjoy football even though we are considered a basketball country. It even got more hype when cable TV now plays international sports events like the World Cup.
Now, there are more than just one football clinics. In one of the football festivals I attended recently, I got to interview a girl football player and she even showed that she can compete with any boy at the field.
Last July 3, not only that I witnessed that our local teams can also play against any team from abroad, they also showed that not even the rains can stop them from playing for fun. That only means football is here to stay. Here are the results of the recent Adidas Cup at the Gatorade Blue Pitch in Circuit Makati.
