    PHI WNT training camp to be held in the United States
    Thursday, July 29, 2021


    With the target of reaching the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 in sight, the Philippine Football Federation (PFF) aims to strengthen its player pool of the Philippine Women’s National Team with a training camp and player tryouts set this August 2021 in Orange County, California, United States.

    The tryouts and training camp mark the team’s preparations for the AFC Women’s Asian Cup Qualifiers scheduled for 13-25 September 2021. The Philippines, ranked 68th in the FIFA Rankings, will face Hong Kong (ranked 76th) and Nepal (ranked 100th) in Group F of the qualifiers. The top team at the end of the group stage will qualify for the AFC Women’s Asian Cup India 2022 next year, for a chance to qualify to the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

    Philippine Women’s National Team head coach Marlon Maro will oversee the tryouts and training camp in the United States. Joining him are assistant coaches Rose Ton Barinan, Michael Agbayani, Anthony Albao, and Marlon Pinero, together with physiotherapists Red Sajonia, Anna Demigillo, and Stella Perreras.

    PFF invites all interested US-based women’s football players to join the tryouts which will be held on 04-12 August 2021. Player requirements are as follows:

    Must be at least 18 years old
    Hold a valid Philippine passport

    Players must also send the following items to PWNT2021@gmail.com and fill in the form in the QR code attached on or before 30 July 2021:

    Player CV
    Three (3) minute highlight video link
    One (1) full match video link (preferred)

    The Philippine Women’s National Team will conduct tryouts for players based in the United States this August 2021.
    The tryouts are part of the team’s preparations for the AFC Women’s Asian Cup Qualifiers this September 2021.
    Interested US-based players may fill up the form in the QR code and submit their requirements to PWNT2021@gmail.com

    I think even if you don't have a Philippine passport at the moment, you can still apply and send your credentials as long as you state your intention in getting one for future events. You can apply for a passport as long as you can prove that at least one of your parents is from the Philippines.

    Many of the national team players are also Fil Ams and Fil Canadians who they recruited originally from the US NCAA ranks, so I don't think it would be too difficult to adjust and have used their status in the Philippine women's national football team to gain entry in women's professional leagues abroad after graduation in Europe and Asia esp. in Japan where there is a quota of Asian players per team that are counted as local players.

    The Philippine Women's National Team is ranked 65th in the women's FIFA ranking as of December 2020 and is considered among the stronger women's football nations in Asia, giving them a decent chance to make the FIFA Women's World Cup which is their ultimate goal.

    Pinay refers to the women's game, pinoy more of the men's game. Is that what you are asking?

    Philippine Women’s National Team tryouts underway
    Thursday, August 5, 2021

    The Philippine Women’s National Team began their preparations for the AFC Women’s Asian Cup India 2022 qualifiers with the team tryouts, which started yesterday 04 August 2021 at Great Park Irvine in Irvine, California, USA.

    The player tryouts session is part of the team’s United States training camp in the buildup to the qualifiers scheduled on 13-25 September 2021. The Philippines will face Hong Kong and Nepal for a spot in the Women’s Asian Cup, which also acts as qualifiers for the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023.

    Over 40 players (composed of Philippine-based and US-based players) are expected to join the tryouts. Following the tryouts, the training camp will begin and will serve as the basis to select the 23 players that will represent the country in the qualifiers.

    In their first competition since the 30th Southeast Asian Games, the Philippine Women’s National Football Team is getting back on the pitch to gain international glory for the country.

    The Philippine Football Federation announced the selection of players who will compete in the AFC Women’s Asian Cup 2022 qualifying matches in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

    A total of 22 players have been called up, with nine holdovers from SEA Games team.

    Headlining the squad are co-captains Inna Palacios and Hali Long.

    Veterans also returning are defenders Chelo Hodges, Tara Shelton, and Patricia Tomanon; midfielders Sara Castaneda, Bhebe Lemoran, and Camille Rodriguez; and striker Alisha Del Campo.

    Defender Ryley Bugay, midfielders Tahnai Annis and Jessica Miclat return to the fold to reinforce the squad. They last represented the program back in the 2018 AFC Women’s Asian Cup in Jordan.

    The rest of the lineup includes debutants Olivia Davies McDaniel, who plays goalkeeper; midfielders Malea Cesar and Alyssa Ube; and forward Chandler McDaniel.

    Former youth internationals Isabelle Mapanao and Arianna Lepage make the cut at the senior level. The likes of Sofia Harrison, Anicka Castaneda, Camille Wilson, and Rocelle Mendano complete the pool.

    The Marlon Maro-mentored squad conducted a training camp in California, USA, last August and left for Uzbekistan last Sunday.

    The team is set to compete against Nepal on September 18 at 6:00 PM (Manila time); and Hong Kong on September 24 at 6:00 PM. They start in Group F at the JAR Stadium in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

    The Filipinas are targeting two straight victories. The team that tops its group is the only one that can book a ticket into the tournament proper of the 2022 AFC Women’s Asian Cup, which takes place in India. It also serves as the final qualification phase of the Asian continent for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

    There are some new faces possibly taken from the tryout in the US. I also noticed that they didn't call up pros like Bolden and Quezada probably because of club commitments. The quarantine requirements enroaches on the time they spend with their clubs and can go beyond the FIFA international window allowed.

    It looks like 4 pros(2 playing in Europe in Graversen and Madarang and 2 playing in Japan in Quezada and Bolden) were not released or chosen for this window.

    Rising Philippines set sights on World Cup ‘dream’

      • Philippines are aiming to qualify for their first FIFA Women’s World Cup
      • The Southeast Asians fell narrowly short of qualification for France 2019
    With the upcoming iteration of the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ set to feature 32 nations for the first time, it seems likely there will several new counties lining up when the world’s elite head Down Under in 2023. One such nation hoping to be among the list of new faces is the Philippines. The Southeast Asians may enjoy little global recognition, but they have been steadily building in recent years and in 2018 they were just a single win away from maiden Women’s World Cup qualification. Having won through to the 2018 AFC Women’s Asian Cup – their first such appearance in 15 years – the Philippines reached the play-off for the fifth and final AFC ticket to France 2019, only to be outclassed by Korea Republic at the final hurdle.

    Fast forward three years and Philippines are primed to begin their charge to win a spot at Australia & New Zealand 2023. Supplemented by a handful of US-based players, the Philippines have cause for optimism. On Saturday, Philippines will tackle outsiders Nepal, before meeting Hong Kong six days later. The latter have considerable historical pedigree and with only one of the three sides progressing to January’s Women’s Asian Cup, there is little margin for error.

    Qualification to the 12-nation Women’s Asian Cup in India would leave Philippines within sight of achieving their Women’s World Cup goal. Mathematically the odds of advancing a step further are strong. The top five teams, excluding Australia, will claim AFC’s five direct slots, with two further nations to participate in the new intercontinental play-off tournament.

    “Making it to the World Cup in 2023 would make the Philippines’ agenda to support women’s football all the way down to the grassroots level. “It would put the Philippines on the map not only in Southeast Asia but across the continent as well in terms of women's football. Everyone loves a good underdog story.”

    https://www.fifa.com/news/rising-ph...b9-VXqnXuZuzqKzuV0iHBqLkQcYGR7S6E8ZxkAxz152Hw

    The Philippines nearly made the Women's World Cup in France in 2019 in a tournament that only had 24 teams(5 AFC slots) finishing 6th in Asia during qualification. They hope to do better for the World Cup in Australia with 32 slots available with the 5 AFC slots excluding Australia as the host and 2 further intercontinental playoff slots available.

    Yeah it was kind of disappointing for them to have such a close game against a small team like Nepal even though the latter used a defensive counterattacking strategy employed by their much more experienced manager Gary Philips who has a long successful international coaching career including in the Philippines with the Davao Aguilas in the top tier men's league the PFL. It doesn't give you that much confidence moving forward with the new all Filipino coaching staff.

    They are missing 4 pros who were part of the team in the past but nevertheless their players should have had enough experience to dominate Nepal.

    Yeah it was. I was resigned to them losing the first game and thinking up gloomy captions until those stoppage time minutes LMAO. Whew dodged a bullet there!!

    But anyways, thanks for the nod @Pelefan appreciate it :x3: I'm feeling giddy of course but i would have traded it for being with the team now because they don't get enough photos there especially the debutants...

    Anyways! Speaking of Europe and the pros, i discovered someone for quite a while now but she turned out to be a big deal only this year because she transferred to a big time club in Sweden's Damallsvenskan:



    I'm keeping in touch with her and helping her hopefully through the process of becoming a legitimate candidate.

    With Hongkong only managing a scoreless draw against Nepal today, the Philippines only needs a tie in their final match against the former to make it to the AFC Women's Cup finals. Hopefully they can win it though.

    Hopefully she can finish her papers in time for the AFC Women's Asian Cup if the Philippines qualifies, which serves as the qualifier for the Women's World Cup. It is a long process and many potential Philippine national men's players who were playing in top tier leagues in Europe did not get their papers ready in time to participate in the final decisive leg of the FIFA World Cup qualifications earlier this year which they unfortunately were eliminated from.

    Congrats to the Philippines for qualifying for the AFC Asian Women's Cup with a record of 2-0 in the qualifiers. They now have a chance to qualify for the FIFA Women's WC in Australia/NZ if the Philippines finishes in the top 5 of the tourmament. Last time they finished 6th just one spot out of the 5 qualified AFC teams to the World Cup and with Australia hosting a spot opens up for another AFC team to join that group.

    Their coach says they plan to return to California to prepare for the AFC Women's Cup since the Philippines is still under lockdown for the most part because of COVID and the local players are unable to train properly. Unfortunately some Philippine based players weren't able to join the training camp in the US for this qualifiers because of visa issues but hopefully they can do that next time.

    I also hope they add the 4 veteran pros who were not released from their clubs in Europe and Japan that were missing from this window and add a few more to strengthen the team like 27 year-old Filipina-French-American midfielder Katrina Guillou who currently plays top flight football in Sweden's Damallsvenskan with club Pitea IF.

    https://www.the-afc.com/competition...atS7lrzn9_-IzIgybvXK12k-RtpcrNnp0LPwS5bfYOn-Y

    Maro said it is important for the Philippines-based players to join their teammates in California for the training camp.

    “My plan next is to make sure that all players in Manila can have their visas. California is the only place that we can train on because it’s open already.

    "You can do all sports activities there. And besides, we can have a lot of friendly matches like what happened in this competition. We had five practice matches with different women clubs in California so that helped us a lot to prepare tactically.”

    Maro will also look at strengthening the squad to ensure Philippines are at their best for the Finals.

    “We have to make sure that we beef up the team when it comes to players based on position. We have positions that we have to strengthen especially the side defenders.”

    She had one scoring chance. Hope it's enough to convince the coach to start her next time!
