Brothers Phil and James Younghusband will settle their score in the Clear Dream Match 3, the country’s biggest football all-star game that will get added star power with Manchester United legends Paul Scholes and Andy Cole suiting up.
Team Phil and Team James had split the first two rounds of their sibling battle over the past two years and to prepare for their upcoming third clash on June 7 at the University of Makati field, they finalized their rosters in the draft at the Hyve recently.
Phil tabbed fellow Azkal and Ceres-La Salle player Carlie de Murga to be his co-captain for the squad that will also have Chris Greatwich (Kaya FC), Sam Bonney (Loyola Meralco Sparks), Mark Hartmann (Global FC), Anto Gonzales (Pachanga), and Baba Sampana (Loyola Meralco Sparks), among others.
On the other hand, James picked Pachanga PLDT Home Fibr FC player and Azkal Nate Burkey as co-captain with Joaco Canas and Simon Greatwich (Loyola Meralco Sparks), OJ Porteria and Anton del Rosario (Kaya FC), and Misagh Bahadoran (Global FC) as some of his team members.
The draft was made after weeks of voting and competitive team campaigning.
With more than 700,000 votes, the 50-player voting pool consisting of the top ranked United Football League players based on statistics was trimmed down to 30, each one drafted by captains James and Phil Younghusband.
The online fan engagement, meanwhile, would still continue until May 25. The team with the highest points by May 26 will get the privilege of selecting the Manchester United legend they want on their team.
