Hidilyn Diaz, PH athletes come together for PWNFT

The current Philippine Women’s National Football Team has already made history by qualifying for the 2022 AFC Asian Cup’s playoff stage.

And more history can happen tonight if the Philippines can defeat Chinese-Taipei in the quarterfinals. It will punch the country’s ticket to the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

No Philippine team has ever made it to the biggest stage of the sport, and it is within the country’s grasp.

Knowing the gravity of the remaining games left for the PWNFT, the country’s top athletes banded together by throwing some words of encouragement to the team.

Leading the way was none other than the country’s first-ever gold medalist in the Olympics, Hidilyn Diaz.

“Good luck sa laban niyo mamaya against Chinese-Taipei. Proud na proud kami sa inyo! Laban Pilipinas!”

Also posting messages to the team were the likes of triathlon’s Nikko Huelgas; basketball’s Jong Uichico, Jeffrey Cariaso, Kiefer Ravena, Thirdy, CJ Perez, and Jeron Teng; volleyball’s Maddie Madayag and Jules Samonte; softball’s Cheska Altomonte, Ann Antolihao, and CJ Roa; and former Azkals Anton Del Rosario, Simon Greatwich, and Misagh Bahadoran.

The Philippines-Chinese Taipei match will air live on One Sports and One Sports plus.

“We are grateful for the cooperation of Cignal TV and Eleven Sports in making the live broadcast of the match in the Philippines possible,” PFF general secretary Atty Edwin Gastanes said.

The PWNFT is supported by team manager Jefferson Cheng, the Philippine Sports Commission, and the MVP Sports Foundation.
