Two Ce­buano boot­ers make FCB PH squad


TWO Ce­buano boot­ers made it to the fi­nal lineup of the Milo FC Barcelona (FCB) Philip­pine team that will be go­ing to Barcelona, Spain to par­tic­i­pate in a foot­ball camp.

The two Ce­buanos are Joseph Kyne Garces of Don Bosco Tech­ni­cal Col­lege (DBTC) and Ethan Ja­cob Roxas of Paref Springdale. Both were part of 150 other hope­fuls who tried out last Sept. 2 to 3 in Manila. Only 13 play­ers were se­lected to be part of the first MILO FC Barcelona (FCB) Philip­pine team.

They were se­lected by an ex­pert panel com­prised of ex­ec­u­tives and coaches from MILO Philip­pines, the Philip­pine Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion (PFF), and the FCB Es­cola Youth Acad­emy.

The team will take part in a se­ries of ac­tiv­i­ties from Oct. 15 un­til Oct. 23 in Barcelona. These in­clude class­room train­ings, mu­seum vis­its, a foot­ball clinic, a city tour, and a match view­ing at Camp Nou, where they will be able to watch their FC Barcelona he­roes in the flesh.

The pro­gram will also be high­lighted by spe­cial train­ing ses­sions with FC Barcelona leg­end Eric Abidal.
