Romeo returns to international play as Gilas lineup vs Chinese Taipei revealed
MANILA, Philippines – Terrence Romeo will be making his keenly-awaited return to the international scene as Gilas Pilipinas' 12-man lineup against Chinese Taipei was revealed on Thursday, June 28.
In a report by ESPN5's JC Ancis, Romeo, after missing the first two windows of the Asian Qualifiers for the 2019 FIBA World Cup due to injuries, joins Jayson Castro, Andray Blatche and June Mar Fajardo when the national team squares off with the Taiwanese on Friday, June 29, at the Taipei Heping Basketball Stadium.
Romeo's comeback provides a major offensive boost for Gilas, which is missing the services of spitfire guards Kiefer Ravena (suspension) and Kevin Alas (injury).
Japeth Aguilar, Gabe Norwood, Calvin Abueva, Jio Jalalon, Allein Maliksi, RR Pogoy, Troy Rosario and Matthew Wright complete the lineup.
Baser Amer, Carl Bryan Cruz and Gilas cadet Troy Rike are the other members of the 15-man pool who flew to Chinese Taipei.
Gilas Pilipinas seeks to repeat on the Taiwanese, whom the Nationals defeated, 90-83, in the first window. – Rappler.com
