PASIG CITY, Philippines – Loyola Marymount women’s soccer junior Sarina Bolden has been invited by the Phillipine Football Federation to participate in the upcoming women’s national team trials.

“This is another great opportunity for Sarina,” said Head Coach Michelle Myers. “Last year, she participated in a US U-23 camp and now she is getting a chance to represent her other nationality on the senior level. Several countries, including the United States, look to use dual citizenship players to enhance their rosters so it is no surprise that the Philippines are looking at several US college players like Sarina. Playing in a World Cup is every young soccer player’s dream.”

The camp is part of the preparations for the AFC Women's Asian Cup (April 6-22 in Jordan). This competition serves as the final round of Women's World Cup qualifying for the AFC region for the final eight Asian teams (Japan, Australia, China, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Jordan, and Philippines). Out of the eight teams competing, the top five teams will advance to the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup in France.

The Philippine Women's National Team November Training Camp/Tryouts is scheduled for November 19-25 at the El Cerrito Sports Park in Corona, California.



Other LMU players that have competed for another country while at LMU include Amanda Dudley (Puerto Rico U-20 WNT) and Vanessa Rojas (Costa Rica U-20 and full WNT).
