True that. While it's still far from matching Basketball and Boxing in overall popularity, it's sufficiently popular enough to the point that the Azkals (national football team) have more Facebook fans than Gilas (national basketball team) does....

Football was a famous sports before. Paulino Alcantara played for the Philippines in Tokyo, Japan (Far Eastern Games) against the Japanese where Philippines won, It became the Philippines' biggest win in International Football during those time 1917. Football was just overshadowed by the popularity of Basketball during the American Era but Football was actually famous before to the Filipinos it's just recently that they revive the Filipinos interest in Football. They were 3 Filipinos that was recruited to join Spain team.

I know that... Anyway it's good to see it making a comeback and hopefully it won't be long before it shows up on the top tier of sports in terms of popularity in the Philippines.
