It looks like the Philippine Azkals will be missing the services of Fil-Brit midfielder Chris Greatwich for the time being.
Greatwhich did not join the National Team who flew to Bahrain earlier this week to embark on a training camp, followed by an International Friendly match against the home team on Monday, March 30.
The long-time Azkals member took to social media to explain why he didn't join the trip and further explained that he will be taking time off from international football to spend more time with his family.
Many people in the last few days have asked why I have not traveled with the squad to Bahrain this week. Last week I met with Coach Dooley and told him I would be taking a break from International football for a while. It has been the greatest privilege to play for Philippines for the past 10 years but for now I like to spend more time with my family, especially my baby Nico. Thanks to all the players, staff and fans who've supported us over the years and I wish the team the best of luck in the future. #azkals #philippines #football #pinoy
Greatwich began his career with the Azkals in 2004, and has appeared in 44 international matches while netting seven goals for the Philippines.
Only time will tell if Greatwich will once again suit up for the Azkals, but for now, we wish Chris and his family all the best!
