Before the Azkals Fever

Three Pictures of Aly Boromeo and Chieffy Caligdong 
from the Summer of 2010  .  .  .

Months before the Azkals made the news, I was able to take a number of photos  Aly Borromeo and Chieffy Caligdong,  who were playing [then]
for Kaya Digiprit and Air Force respectively.

March 28, 2010 [UFL] - Ateneo Erenchum Field
Aly is on the extreme right.

April 25, 2010 [UFL] - Army Football Field

Big Shots of Aly and Chieffy from
July 28 and Febuary 9 of 2011  .  .  .

July 28, 2011 - Rizal Coliseum
A four-frame sequence . . .

showing Aly Borromeo whooping it up . . .
[This particular frame [the best among the 4]
can be seen in two earlier posts.]

after Schrock scored the Azkals' one and only goal . . .

 in the closing seconds of the 1st half of their match vs Kuwait,
where RP was knocked out of the World Cup Qualifying Race,
 losing to the Kuwaitis [4-1].

 Febuary 9, 2011 - Panaad Stadium

  - Big Goal, Big Shot - Big Photo
Chieffy Caligdong's goal that put the Azkals ahead by a point over Mongolia.
Phil Younghusband scored the 2nd Goal which helped seal the win.
 [Azkals-2   Mongolia-0]
[This JPEG may be seen in one of my early posts titled
"Panalo - Getting the Job Done"]
[It also came out in a Sports Section Spread of a daily, last Febuary 12]

and a simple photo of Chieffy and a boy.

October, 2011 - UMak Football Field
- Simple Photo -- Or so it seems -
This is a stolen shot of Caligdong warming up and
daring  a little fan to steal the soccer ball from him.
The moment captured here might appear insignificant, at first glance, 
and even inconsequential, at the most - more so if one compares it to Borromeo's "whooping it up" photo.  But if one can "get it",
 it's "utter simplicity" is its strength.  No image of flashy or flamboyant goals here - just a man and a boy, and a soccer ball --
that says a whole lot more than meets the eye.
