Meet some members of the much-lionized Philippine Azkals football team. Top image is Simon Greatwich, 21-year-old Filipino-English midfielder. He was born in Brighton, England but he’s currently based in Oneonta, New York where he goes to Hartwick College on a football scholarship. In the middle is Rob Gier, 31-year-old Filipino-English centerback. One of the oldest in the group, he’s married and based in Oxford, England. Bottom picture is, of course, Neil Etheridge, the 21-year-old Filipino-English goalkeeper. He is a senior member of the Fulham professional team in the English premier league – reason enough for him to miss the recent Mongolia outing of the team.
