Brothers Phil and James Younghusband prefer Pinays over Brits, but their hearts belong to football — for now

Ano bang katangian ng babae ang hanap nila? Ayon kay Phil Younghusband (above), "A nice smile... I don't have a specific type, as long as I get along with the person." Ang sabi naman ng kapatid niyang si James, "Someone who's not selfish, [who] cares about others before herself."


Dalawa sa pinakapopular na miyembro ng Philippine National Football Team, na mas kilala sa tawag na Azkals, ang magkapatid na half-Pinoy, half-British footballers na sina Philip James "Phil" Younghusband at James Joseph Younghusband.

Ekslusibo silang nakausap ng Startalk TX sa 40th anniversary school fair ng St. Paul College, Pasig.

Here's good news for their female fans: Phil and James are both single.

Ano bang katangian ng babae ang hanap nila?

Phil: "A nice smile... I don't have a specific type, as long as I get along with the person."

James: "Someone who's not selfish, [who] cares about others before herself."

Who is better with the girls?

James: "I think we have different ways, we are complete opposites. We go for different types of girls, really."

Phil: "I think everyone has a type. But in Bacolod it was just 'James! James! James!' They like his tanned skin and his lush hair and his baby face."

If they had to choose between a Filipina and a Brit?

James: "Hmmm... tough choice... Filipina."

Phil: "Filipina."

Mas kilala sa entertainment industry si Phil dahil naging contestant ito sa season 2 ng Celebrity Duets ng GMA-7.

Wala bang plano ang magkapatid na pasukin ang showbiz?

Phil: "Depende sa role... I'm not saying no, but right now, football is our priority and our passion."

Ayon rin kay James, football ang mundo niya ngayon, kaya hindi daw siya papasok muna sa showbiz. "Who knows, maybe. If we still don't have any wrinkles, if I'm not too old and I'm not playing as much, maybe then."

Sa huling linggo ng Pebrero ay aakyat ng Baguio City ang Team Azkals upang magsanay for the second leg of the 2012 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Challenge Cup sa Mongolia.

"Maraming salamat for all your support. Thank you to all our supporters and fans in the Philippines and Indonesia," says James.

Nagpasalamat rin si Phil sa kanilang mga tagahanga at supporters. "Maraming, maraming salamat po sa lahat. Sana your support continues and we'll be doing our best to make you proud of us. Thank you for all your support, and we love you!"

Samantala, posibleng hindi makapaglaro ang goalkeeper ng Azkals na si Neil Etheridge sa susunod na laban ng team sa Mongolia on March 15.

The 6'3" British-Filipino who plays reserve goalkeeper for the Fulham Football Club is returning to London.

Ayon sa panayam ng Philippine Daily Inquirer, sinabi ng 21-year old na si Etheridge: "I will be away for too long and the club may not allow that. But of course, I am also considering the importance of the match."
