There are more. It means, it will be a headache for any coach to choose only 12 among all of these,” he said.“There are a lot of players to choose from and you will pick just 12 so that’s going to cause headache, but it’s a good problem,” he added. “What we don’t want is not having a selection to choose from so we have a good problem.”Guiao got a first look at Thompson, Slaughter, Lassiter, Cabagnot and Sangalang and seeing the five team up with Pringle and the rest of the Asiad players had him licking his chops.“I’m impressed. I’m excited to see them play for the national team. I feel that we have the materials to compete with Iran and Qatar in this window,” Guiao said. “It’s just going to be a matter of how we’ll be able to orchestrate and blend all these talents together.”ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
