Terrence Romeo is back for Gilas Pilipinas.

The Philippines has revealed its lineup against Chinese Taipei in the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers, and after a lenghty absence in the national team due to injuries, the Bro is back.

Romeo joins TNT teammates Jayson Castro, RR Pogoy, and Troy Rosario in the Gilas 12 vs. Taipei on Friday for the 3rd window of the first round.

Also in the lineup are Gabe Norwood, June Mar Fajardo, Japeth Aguilar, Calvin Abueva, Matthew Wright, Jio Jalalon, and Allein Maliksi.

The three cuts were Baser Amer, Carl Bryan Cruz, and Troy Rike.

Gilas Pilipinas will hope to sweep Taipei in the Asian Qualifiers after previously scoring a 90-83 win last November at the Big Dome during the first window.

The Philippines currently has a 3-1 record and is trailing Australia (4-0) for Group B lead. Gilas is through to the next round but team records will carry over.

The Gilas-Taipei rematch is set for 7:00 p.m. Friday live from Taipei.
