Team Azkals are starting to be on top of all feeds lately and names are revealing on who should we meet and know what is their contribution to the Azkals team, this striker named Angel Guirado scored the 3rd goal in their recent match with Sri Lanka and won the game last July 3, at the meet up with the press, We heard many stories about our striker Fil-Spanish Angel Aldeguer Guirado, and looks like he will be the next guy to be seen on tv, magazines or even billboards..hmmm what brand are we talking about?
more story below
There are a lot of plans for Angel and that includes getting more opportunity here in our land, and playing for the team Azkals and for our country is a one great opportunity, he's lucky to be part of the team. I didn't got a chance to interview him personally, I was busy taking pics and observe on what news that I can get for my blog, but I met Angel and he's nice and cool, even that he doesn't know how to speak English and tagalog (but he understands and learns new words in tagalog), one cool Spanish guy playing for us in the fields, but also wants to play for his home. I'm glad that he chose us (smiles)
the 26 year old and 6'3" in height striker is now with PR Asia, a PR network that will handle all of the commercial and dealings for Angel. According to PR Asia's chief executive Joyce Ramirez, -"When his family approached my agency and told us the story of Senor Guirado, it took little convincing to get us back to the game, we officially welcome Team Guirado to our camp".
Angel started to play foot ball when he was 4 years old with his brother in his hometown in Malaga and then at 5 years old he started playing against bigger and older boys than him. His pinay mom Angela said that Angel always sleeps with his socks on his feet so that he can play right away when he wokes up in the morning, thats a cute and funny story from his mom. Then to his younger years, Angel played for his school til high school in San Estanislao de Kotska. He also played for other clubs in Spain and then decided to play for us and for the Philippine national team this 2011. His first game with the Azkals is when they got a match with Myanmar, were he scored his first international goal to settle the match to a draw, and then he again scored two goals on another match with Bangladesh and gives them another victory.
