With forward Phil Younghusband and midfielders Stephan Schröck and Kevin Ingreso still nursing injuries, reinforcements have been called-up to help the battered Philippine Azkals squad in their final 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier game against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea on Tuesday, March 29.

Loyola Meralco Sparks’ midfielder James Younghusband is set to make a return to the national team after not making the final cut for the Azkals during the start of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. The 29 year old had been a mainstay for the Men’s National Football team but did not make the final roster in favor of “better performing” players according to head coach Thomas Dooley.
