In a country that is dominated by basketball enthusiast, football or soccer is considered an indigenous sport. I would admit that I like basketball more than any sport. But there is a great hope for the sport soccer here in the country today. Thanks to the famous Philippine Azcals team for making this possible.

Just the other week, I visited a small town in Davao Del Norte for an official field work. I passed by this elementary school. Many children/students were playing soccer, considering it was too hot that day. The soccer field was an open field. The basketball court was covered but no students were playing. Kids were too busy kicking the soccer ball in hot field. There was this one kid that said that he plays soccer because when he grow up, he will able to play with the national team and be part of Philippine Azcals Team. 2011 is a good year for soccer.
