Hibs youngster Yrik Galantes called up to Philippines Squad

Last updated : 09 October 2019 By Steve Forbes

Hibs youngster Yrik Galantes has been called up to the Philippines squad for their up-coming World Cup quaifier against China PR, which also, strangely, doubles up as an AFC Asian Cup qualifier.

The 18-year-old attacker, who's yet to make a first team appearance for the Hibees, is currently on loan with Lowland League outfit Gala Fairydean Rovers.

Galantes made his debut in last month's clash with Guam.

The game takes place Tuesday 15th October 2019.

Good luck Yrik.

An incredible achievment for a kid who's only experience is Lowland League football.
