This is a weekly post devoted to following up on all the overseas-based footballers who have played for the Philippines. Like what the title stated, this is a recap of games of a team that has a Filipino in the lineup. And again, for him to be included in the tracking process, either he has to have capped for the Philippines or been named to the lineup as a reserve, or has been locked to or agreed to play for us (as with the case of the likes of Kevin Ingreso). So, if you are looking for David Alaba, Jonathan De Guzman and Alphonse Areola, you will not find him here (and in the case of Areola, not yet, anyway).
If you feel that there is a name missing on the list that you would like me to monitor as well, or even correct me on some things, you may do so by sending me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting me on my twitter handle (@misterjpmanahan) for questions. You can also tweet Soccer Central Philippines (@soccercentralph) You may also write them on the comments page below.
Again, do take note they have to qualify to the parameters set above. Major thanks to the people involved with and in Usapang Football for their assistance in detailing the info.
