Pangilinan cheers on Gilas after Duterte backs China in FIBA: Laban! Huwag magpatinag
Senator Francis Pangilinan is still rooting for Gilas Pilipinas to win in the upcoming FIBA World Cup despite President Duterte’s apparent lack of confidence in the Philippine basketball team.
“Laban GILAS! No retreat. Never surrender. Huwag magpatinag!” Pangilinan tweeted.
President Duterte earlier said Gilas Pilipinas has no chance of winning against its much taller opponents like Italy in the FIBA tournament in China later this month. He said Filipinos might as well cheer for China in the basketball game.
