Manila, Philippines – While the Philippines’ national women’s football team did not qualify for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, the future of the sport in the country is still looking bright.
A number of young players are emerging who have the potential to make a big impact on the international stage. These players are getting their development opportunities through the Philippine Women’s Football League (PWFL), which is the top professional women’s football league in the country.
The PWFL has been in operation since 2019, and it has helped to raise the standard of women’s football in the Philippines. The league has also helped to increase the visibility of women’s football in the country, and it has attracted a growing fan base.
In addition to the PWFL, there are a number of other youth development programs in the Philippines that are helping to nurture the next generation of female footballers. These programs are being run by clubs, schools, and government agencies, and they are all playing a role in helping to develop the sport in the country.
With the right support, the Philippines has the potential to become a major force in Asian women’s football. The country has a large population, and it has a growing passion for the sport. If the Philippines can continue to develop its young players, it could soon become a regular contender at the AFC Women’s Asian Cup and the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Here are some of the young players who are tipped to be the future of Philippines women’s football:
- Sofia Sanggre: The 19-year-old midfielder is one of the most exciting young talents in the Philippines. She is a gifted dribbler and passer, and she has a knack for scoring goals.
