MANILA, Philippines – Azkals team manager Dan Palami has met with Filipino-French goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, who is reportedly being recruited to join the Philippine football squad.
The Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper is seen by many as a potential prize catch for the Azkals, who could use his services in international competitions.
Palami met Areola before the Philippine team’s game against the Netherlands in the Homeless World Cup on Tuesday.
Areola cheered for the Philippine team and even gave 2 set of gloves for the Filipino goalkeepers.
The 6'2" goalkeeper has been tipped to become both PSG's and France's No. 1 in the next few years.
Palami is currently in Europe to recruit Filipino-foreign players to join the Azkals.
