Azkals player and Golden Boot awardee Phil Younghusband is not one to shy away from proclaiming his love for rumored girlfriend actress Angel Locsin.
While they have yet to confirm their status as an official couple, Younghusband admitted that his relationship with Locsin has become stronger.
“I want a future with Angel. That’s still the way I feel. And hopefully, I have a future with Angel. [Our] love is getting stronger. Everyday, I’m growing more and more in love with her,” Younghusband told Push.com.ph.
Asked if they have discussed plans to get married, Younghusband said he and Locsin are trying to pace their relationship well.
“Wedding plans are [too] soon. We’re taking it one step at a time. We’re not trying to rush anything. I’m very happy and when the time comes, we’ll see. But right now, we’re very happy.”
Younghusband also said they continue to be supportive of each other’s careers.
“We’ve been very lucky and blessed. She won an award, I won an award. So I think we’re good for each other. I also wish her congratulations. She has been there all the way.”
In March, Locsin bagged the Movie Actress of the Year award at the 28th Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) Star Awards for Movies. In the same month, Younghusband won the Golden Boot award for the most number of goals scored in the 2012 AFC Challenge Cup tournament.

Angel Locsin received another trophy from the Anak TV Seal Awards this year, being a consistent awardee from the highly-respected award-giving body since 2006. More than the trophy, the actress takes pride in knowing that being an awardee of Anak TV translates to being an inspiration to the youth. “I think may nagagawa naman kaming okay sa career namin, so maraming maraming salamat talaga sa Anak TV Awards and I hope marami pang ma-inspire na mga kagaya naming artista na tumulong sa kapwa,” Angel said at the awarding ceremony.
Coincidentally, her ex-boyfriend Luis Manzano also won an award and Angel received the trophy on Luis’s behalf, after the actress was teased by the other Kapamilya awardees. “Wala kasi siya dito ngayon and dahil ako ang nakita nilang lahat para tumanggap ng award, so tinanggap ko naman. Nag-thank you na rin ako para sa kanya,” the actress explained after the program.
When asked if she wishes Luis well in his new relationship with actress Jennylyn Mercado, Angel replied, “Yes, I think so.” She also added that they are both happy, referring to her own relationship with football star Phil Younghusband.
Meanwhile, as for the coming holidays, the actress said that she will spend quality time with her family. “Kasama ko ang pamilya ko sa Pasko, hindi ko alam kung matutuloy ang bakasyon namin after Christmas pero sana para meron kaming bakasyon,” she related.
She continued that although she is now shooting for a movie with John Lloyd Cruz, she has already asked permission for a short leave so she can catch up with her family during the Christmas break. “Inayos naman namin ang schedule namin kasi Christmas time is family time. Siyempre ayoko namang i-sacrifice ang family ko because of my schedule. Ayokong ma-sacrifice ‘yung happiness nila, ‘yung gusto nilang gawin so naka-block off na ‘yon.”

Philippine Azkals’ striker Phil Younghusband said his rumored girlfriend, actress Angel Locsin, will be watching their second game against the Sri Lankan Brave Reds on Sunday.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Younghusband said he is excited that Locsin will be at the Rizal Memorial Stadium to show support for him and the rest of his team.
“Yeah, she’ll be there. Binigay ko sa kanya ‘yung Mongolia jersey ko. I’m happy [that] Angel is coming,” he said.
Aside from Locsin, family, friends and loved ones of the Azkals players will be watching the game on Sunday.
“I gave my tickets to my cousins. Family friends from New York are also coming,” said Fil-Am Nate Burkey, the player who scored the Azkals’ away goal last Wednesday.
Goalkeeper Neil Etheridge, on the other hand, said, “My parents are flying in all the way from England. This game will be for my granddad who passed away a few weeks ago.”
As for James Younghusband, he said his girlfriend and her family will also watch the Azkals as they play against Sri Lanka.
“Yeah definitely I got her [girlfriend] and her family tickets. She said she might even wear face paint, she’s really passionate,” he said.
Meanwhile, other Azkals players vowed to do better as they face the Sri Lankan Brave Reds for the second leg of their FIFA World Cup qualifier, capitalizing on their home advantage.
Sri Lanka held the Philippine football team to a 1-1 draw last Wednesday.
Team Captain Aly Borromeo, for his part, said, “Fans will see us very aggressive in our game. We’re going to make sure to score a few goals.”
“‘Yung mas importante dito, hindi lang ‘yung laban kontra Sri Lanka. Para rin ito sa susunod, Kuwait,” said co-captain Chieffy Caligdong

Football heartthrob Phil Younghusband vehemently denied a report that he has a non-showbiz girlfriend.
Report has it that the girl being referred to is named KC, and is the former girlfriend of “Happy Yipee Yehey” host Matteo Guidicelli.
“I don’t know. I don’t know who KC is,” said Younghusband who is now exclusively dating actress Angel Locsin.
When asked for his reaction on the said issue, the Azkals player replied: “I don’t know anything. I don’t know anything about it.”
Younghusband made the statement during the launching of his latest endorsement, a vitamin drink that People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao used to endorse.
In the interview, Younghusband stressed that spending time with Locsin is also his priority aside from playing football.
He said that he and Locsin are making time to be together even though he is busy training for the upcoming match of Azkals against Sri Lanka’s football team.
Locsin who just arrived from the US to promote her film “In The Name of Love,” is supportive of team Azkals for representing the country.
Last April, Younghusband also denied a rumor that he fathered a child with a non-showbiz girl who lives in Iloilo.
He said there is no truth to the rumor and added that he has no idea where the issue came from.

Sa The Buzz nung linggo ay inamin ni Angel Locsin na nagde-date nga sila ng football star na si Phil Younghusband. Nang itanong ng host na si Charlene Gonzales kung ano na ang status nila, ang sagot ni Angel, “Dun ako sa exclusively dating. Iki-clear ko lang din. Kasi kami ni Phil, ‘pag may in-entertain na kami, ‘yun lang. Hindi ‘yung sabay-sabay. Ako, lalo na, hindi ko kaya ‘yung sabay-sabay, lalo na kung dine-date, ang focus ko sa kanya lang. Ayoko kasi ng paiba-iba. Hindi ko kaya ang sabay-sabay.”
Itinanggi rin ni Angel na sila na ng Filipino-British athlete. “Hindi pa (kami). Parang masyado pang maaga. Ine-enjoy lang namin kung ano man ‘yung nadi-discover namin sa isat-isa, kilig kilig,” sabay bungisngis ng aktres.
Hindi naman agad nakapagsalita si Angel nang tanungin siya ni Charlene kung sinabihan na siya ni Phil ng mga katagang, I love you. “Hindi ko alam. Siya na lang po ang tanungin n’yo,” natatawang tugon ng aktres.
Hindi pa raw masabi ni Angel kung malapit na silang maging magkasintahan ni Phil. “Iniisip ng tao kami na pero ako kasi ayoko pa magmadali. Gusto ko muna i-enjoy. Ako, 26 (years old) na, ayoko nang maglaro. Gusto ko munang maging sigurado. Ayokong masaktan,” pag-amin niya.
Para naman sa kanyang mensahe kay Phil, sambit ni Angel, “I’m very thankful talaga sa time, sa effort. Si Phil kasi nararamdaman ko parang gusto niya lagi lang akong happy. Alam niya na hindi pa ako ready. Kailangan ko pa ng time, pero sobrang thankful ako sa kanya. Kinilikig ako.”
Malaking bagay din daw sa kanya na alam niyang proud sa kanya si Phil. “Nakakagaan ng loob. Maraming salamat, thank you, Phil,” pahayag ng kinikilig na aktres.

A surprised Angel Locsin was tickled pink on Sunday after receiving 4 surprise gifts from suitor Phil Younghusband during her guesting on celebrity show “The Buzz.”
Younghusband was not present during the show to personally give the gifts. Host Charlene Gonzales instead handed them to her.
Gonzales presented first a personalized card from Younghusband, who congratulated the actress following the success of her latest Star Cinema movie, “In The Name of Love.”
Locsin then received a tumbler from him, with a note, “I thirst for your affection.”
The actress also received a pillow “to make sure you’re always comfortable” during her trips and a teddy bear “to cuddle when I’m not there.”
A visibly happy Locsin admitted that she was caught off guard. “Nagulat ako. First time na may gumawa sa akin ng ganito. Ganito pala ang feeling. I’m very thankful sa time and effort. Si Phil parang nararamdaman ko na gusto niya lagi lang akong happy kahit alam niya na hindi pa ako ready, na kailangan ko pa ng time. Kinikilig ako,” she said.
“Thank you Phil. Sobrang na-appreciate ko,” she added.
Locsin said she and the Azkals heartthrob are exclusively dating. She said she wants to get to know the British-Filipino football player first before they get into a serious relationship.
“Ayoko kasing magmadali talaga. Gusto kong i-enjoy ito. I’m 26 na, ayokong maglaro. Gusto kong maging sigurado. Ayokong masaktan. So, careful lang ako,” she added.
Younghusband first asked Locsin out on a date on social microblogging site Twitter.
