Fans can expect another packed match on September 9, as Davao Aguilas FC plunges back into action as they go up against Global Cebu FC, after their month-long international break.

With Reymart Cubon of U22, scoring a goal for the Philippines and both the Younghusband brothers – Phil and James, scoring a goal each in their Azkals match vs. Yemen.
