Late-game injury mars the match

MANILA – Phil and James Younghusband ended their sibling rivalry on the field on Saturday with Team James beating Team Phil, 1-0, in the Clear Dream Match III at the University of Makati Football Field.

Joaco Canas scored the lone goal for Team James off a beautiful corner kick by Chieffy Caligdong in the 72nd minute.

The game also featured Manchester United superstars Paul Scholes and Andy Cole. Scholes, considered as one of the best midfielders today, sided with Team Phil, while Team James had Cole, the second highest goal scorer in the English Premier League history.

The game, however, didn’t go without a hitch as Phil got injured after running into a head collision with Reynald Villareal near the end of the march.

The hit opened a cut on the head of the Azkals player, who had to be rushed to the hospital.
