Angel Locsin on Phil Younghusband's face-off with David Beckham: 'Super pray ako kay Lord'


121011-angel-main.jpgAngel Locsin said that she was really proud of Phil Younghusband’s performance during the Philippine Azkals’ friendly match with LA Galaxy headed by football icon David Beckham at the Rizal Stadium last December 3. It didn’t matter that the LA Galaxy won by a 5-point lead with only a single goal by the Azkals courtesy of Phil. What’s important is that the local football team succeeded in raising awareness about the said sport in the country.

The beautiful actress further shared that she prayed hard for Phil to score a goal during the game. “Hawak-hawak ko yung fan ko, super pray ako kay Lord kasi alam ko na dream niya makasama sila David Beckham. Tapos maraming tao ang makakanood especially yung mga kabataan. So nag-pray ako na kahit isang goal lang. Hindi ko alam kung pinakinggan talaga ako ni Lord, pero nag-goal si Phil. Happy ako siyempre,” she cheerfully recalled.

Angel admitted that she wasn’t really a big fan of David Beckham, but she appreciated his good looks and world-famous talent in football. “Kilala ko si Beckham, ina-admire ko siya, pero mas kilala ko si Posh (Victoria Beckham, formerly known as Posh of the girl band, Spice Girls). Sabi ko sa kanya kapag pumunta siya dito mas ma-a-appreciate ko. Kaya lang wala hindi siya pumunta dito eh. Hahaha! I wanted his autograph sana pero hindi ako nagkaroon ng chance [ma-meet si Beckham].”

Push.com.ph also asked Angel how she felt knowing that Phil was wearing a pair of his signature shoes with her name on it during the Azkals’ high-profile match with the LA Galaxy. But the actress refused to be called Phil’s lucky charm. “In-order niya yung shoes tapos nilagyan niya ng pangalan ko. Ayaw kong sabihin na ako ang lucky charm niya, baka hindi mag-work, nakakahiya naman ‘di ba? Masaya ka lang na naalala ka niya every time may game siya. Nakakataba ng puso. Siya ba nag-post nun sa Twitter? Hahaha!

Angel maintained that it’s only right that she give her full support towards Phil’s endeavors since he’s equally supportive of her showbiz career. “Grabe din naman yung suporta niya sa akin. As in kapag nakikita niya [yung body of work ko], hindi ko alam kung bola niya lang, pero sabi niya I’m a good actress. Kapag may nakita siyang ad ko sasabihin niya, ‘You look very pretty there.’ Nafi-feel ko naman [yung sincerity niya]. Hayaan niyo na. Mas gusto niyo ‘yan. Happy and inspired lang talaga ako!
