Free Damn: Angelica vs. the Azkals

A Scottish satirical writer during the Victorian era, Thomas Carlyle, pointed out that ‘every human being has a right to hear what other wise human beings have spoken to him. It is one of the Rights of Men; a very cruel injustice if you deny it to a man!’

And so, Angelica Panganiban may have been just right for ‘tweeting’ her opinion on Phil Younghusband's ‘interest in showbiz.’

Si Phil may indie film? Akala ko ba football player siya??? Lahat na lang artista na. Sad.” (Does Phil have an Indie film? I thought he is a football player??? Everyone wants to enter showbiz. That’s sad.)

Masama. Sana lang mag-focus muna silang lahat sa Football. Para sa Pinas kasi yun. #justsayin’ after na lang ng tourny mag artista,” (It’s bad. I hope they first focus on Football. That’s for the country. Maybe after the tournament, then they can join showbiz)

But “the right to swing my fist ends where the other man's nose begins,” so says former US Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., “Di pag may opportunity na edi i-grab na! Ikaw nga hindi nag-aral dahil gusto mo mag artista!!!!” (That’s their life! If there’s an opportunity, then grab it! You did not study because you want to join showbiz!!!) happiemom808 retorted.

It’s also not the actress’ business if Younghusband has a movie project, anilmorales pointed out. “bakit? wala kang pakialam kung kami ni phil or not in the same way wla karing pakialam kung may movie siya oh wala!” (Why? It’s not your business if Phil and I have a relation and in the same way that it’s not your business if he has a movie or not!)

The word war goes until Panganiban deleted her Twitter account. The English-Filipino football player's,fans had attacked the actress’ boyfriend, too.

Phil Younghusband tried to enter the Philippine entertainment industry in 1998. He joined the singing contest Celebrity Duets (GMA-7), and had dated Rhian Ramos. Angel Lacson is the apple of his eye right now.

He started playing as a striker for the Chelsea at nine, and was the team's top scorer in 2003.

Four years later, Younghusband signed a contract with the Esbjerg fB, a Danish top-league club. He returned, however, to the Chelsea after 2008.

He moved to the Philippines during that year’s summer. He is currently with the Azkals, where Derek Ramsay tried out.
