PFL welcomes Maharlika club | Inquirer Sports

MANILA, Philippines–Maharlika FC, a club co-founded by former Filipino international Anton Del Rosario, was granted a provisional license by the Philippine Football Federation, paving the way for its entry in the fourth season of the Philippines Football League, which is targeting its kickoff next month.

Del Rosario, who also founded the successful 7s Football League, will be leading the newest club in the league not just as an owner but as one of the most reliable players of coach Roxy Dorlas.

“You can guarantee that Maharlika FC will be a club that will create something for the people,” said Del Rosario, whose club has signed former national team stalwarts Jerry Barbaso, Simon Greatwich and Misagh Bahadoran, former Loyola Meralco defender Joaco Cañas and Daniel Matsunaga.

“We do have a very good lineup of players willing to play for the team.”

Del Rosario said the club will also put emphasis on youth development in an effort to provide more opportunities for players aspiring to be part of the Azkals.

Maharlika FC’s entry ensures that the PFL will have a six-team cast for the planned restart to the 2020 season, which is the minimum requirement set by the AFC for national leagues.

Also seeing action in the PFL are Kaya FC-Iloilo, Mendiola FC 1991, Stallion Laguna FC, and United City FC whose application for change of club name from Ceres Negros FC was granted by PFF, and invited team Azkals Development Team.

Rock star Dave Grohl treated fans to a virtual drum performance of Them Crooked Vultures’ hit “Dead End Friends” while also fulfilling a 10-year-old rocker’s wish for a drum battle.

Rock prodigy Nandi Bushell, a young girl from the United Kingdom, issued the challenge to Grohl on Aug.18 as she covered the Foo Fighters hit “Everlong” with drums.

“My dream is to one day jam with Dave Grohl, @taylorhawkins and all the @foofighters! [Mr.] Grohl I would love to have a drum battle with you! I LOVE Everlong it’s really hard to play as it’s so fast but so much FUN!” Bushell said on Twitter.

Bushell rocked hard as she played Grohl’s “Everlong” stick work in the video, which gained well-deserved attention online, having been retweeted over 23,000 times and liked by more than 113,000 people, as of writing.

The young girl’s talent did not go unnoticed by Grohl, of course, who took to the Foo Fighters’ official Twitter account to share his response to Bushell’s challenge as her “friend in rock.”

“Hey @Nandi_Bushell! Challenge accepted. Haven’t played these songs in a loooooong time…..thanks for the inspiration!!! Your move!!!” he said.
