Two Cebuanas make PH Under-15 football team
TWO Cebuana football players were selected to play for the Philippine Malditas’ Under-15 squad, which will compete in the Aseam Football Federation (AFF) Championship 2017 in Vientiane, Laos on May 7-20.
Trizza Musni will serve as the team’s goalkeeper, while Rizamae Ugbaniel will play as a midfielder.
Musni and Ugbaniel were also part of the PHL Under-14 girls team that won silver medal in the AFC U14 Regional Championships in Laos last year.
The two underwent a grueling training with the national training pool in Los Baños, Laguna. It was a month-long training that started last March 31.
The entire team had several tune-up matches against Manila-based collegiate squads. The team will be headed by former national player Marielle Benitez.
The Philippine Malditas U-15 squad, which is bracketed in Group B, will begin its campaign against Indonesia on May 9 at the KM16 Stadium. The team’s second match will be against Cambodia on May 11, while its last group-stage match will be against Singapore on May 13.
