“Unang-una sabi ko nga sa teammates ko, pasensya na kasi ang dami din namin training, pero isa lang napuntahan ko kasi nga ito nga kasabay nitong The Hows of Us, kaya sabi ko pasensya na di na ako nakapasok ng training.”
Despite not winning this year’s friendly game, Daniel said that he is still thankful to be part of it. As for him, it’s a privilege to play inside the Araneta Coliseum.
“Pero at the end of the day happy pa rin kami kasi sa experience. Sino sino lang ba ang nakakalaro dito sa Araneta? So, the chance, lalo na itong mga kaming frustrated players, eh thank you. Solid.
