IN PHOTOS: Meet the Azkals' newest 'member'
Do the Azkals have a new team member?
During the Philippine football team's match with North Korea on Tuesday, March 29, team manager Dan Palami gave Senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr his very own team jersey. Marcos' staff said it was a gift from Palami.
The vice presidential candidate took some time off his busy campaign schedule to watch the match with his sons Joseph Simon and Vincent. The Philippine football team won the game, 3-2.
The senator lived in London from 1975 to 1978 to study political science, philosophy, and economics. His staff said this is where he picked up his interest in the sport. Marcos himself plays football.
Both of his boys are also avid fans and players of the sport.
Simon got accepted into Oxford University to take up business management in 2014. When Simon was 11 years old, he also entered a boarding school in England to join his eldest brother Ferdinand Alexander, who was also studying in Oxford at the time. – Patty Pasion / Rappler.com
