My Team for the Euro 2012 : Germany

And not just because I've been following the Bundesliga with more passion than La Liga or the EPL. Germany have always managed to do well in international tournaments with such regularity, it surely must serve as a role model in the way it continuously churns out young talent.

More on Germany as we near the Euros, but here is the awesome video from adidas, featuring Die Mannschaft's new kit. 

You might want to check out the same video, in reverse :

Gotta love this team. Had a chance to see them play live, and what an experience! A cameo appearance here on this vid by Jogi Low, but look at the talent at his disposal!

Andre Schurrle, Thomas Muller, Philip Lahm, Manuel Neuer, Lukas Podolski, Mario Gotze, Mario Gomez, Miro Klose, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos and more.

Sorry Spain fans, it's Germany's time in 2012.

Azkals vs Brunei (2008) Locker Room vid c/o Chieffy

As I was doing my prep work for AKTV for the commentary for the U23 Azkals vs Brunei, I found this gem of a video from our midfield maestro, Chieffy Caligdong. This Youtube video was dated August 8, 2008, light years ago from the superstar status these men are enjoying as of the moment. 

From the title of the video, it seems that this was taken in the locker room before the Azkals game against Brunei.

After you see this video, please answer this : How many Azkals can you recognize and who are they? Answers are more than welcome in the comments section below!

PS. Gotta dig that background pre-game music!
