MANILA, Philippines --- Arwind Santos is more than ready to go for Gilas Pilipinas.

Nine years after his last stint to the national team, Arwind is finally back, suiting up for Gilas for the first time Monday against Iran.

The Philippines' shock loss to Kazakhstan Friday has added to the excitement, with the national team eager to bounce back for its last home game of the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.

"Yun ang nakikita ko sa practice natin at saka sa mga ilang araw na natalo tayo sa Kazakhstan, gusto na kaagad bumawi. Lahat kami excited na maglaro. Parang nababagalan kami sa panahon," Santos said.

"Pero ito bukas, kailangan ibigay na namin lahat para at least, kahit papaano, matuwa din ang ating mga kapwa Pilipino," he added.

Making it back to the national team after almost a decade, Arwind is excited and ready to produce.

He's also ready to everything and anything in order to have Gilas Pilipinas walk away with a crucial victory.

"Pinu-push ko sarili ko na sana di ito yung maging huli and pagbu-butihan ko pa para makatulong sa bansa natin," Arwind said.

"Ako ang nasa posisyon na to, kailangan ibigay ko best ko tapos manalo tayo. Kailangan manalo against Iran bukas," he added.
