    maging successful man ang Philippine Street Soccer team, hindi sila magiging kasing sikat ng philippine azkalz dahil hindi sila kasing pogi nung mga half pinoy(nga ba?) players.sad truthrnrnnakakatawa na nakakalungkot isipin at hindi maipapagkaila na kaya biglang sumikat ang azkalz eh dahil sa mga nag popogiang banyagang players na nandun at hindi talaga dahil sa pagiging fanatic ng mga pinoy sa larong soccer.rnrnyan ang pinoy! hahaha! :))

    only shows that street players play better than the azkals.. at least the former shows they are very focused with their play rather than making pa pogi points..
