MANILA--National team players from past and present will comprise the majority of the lineup of the Philippine contingent in the 2015 UFL All-Star Game next Saturday.

All but two players who made it to the Top 18 for the All-Filipino Team already gained experience playing for the Azkals after the fan voting result was released on Friday.

The Younghusband Brothers and O.J. Porteria lead the Azkals voted to the mid-season classic together with Mark Hartmann, Nate Burkey, Manny Ott, Misagh Bahadoran, Martin Steuble, Chris Greatwich, Juani Guirado, Simone Rota, Amani Aguinaldo, and Patrick Deyto alongside former Azkals Jerry Barbaso and Aly Borromeo.

Miguel Tanton and Michael Casas were the two non-Azkal players who made the locals lineup.

The All-Filipino Team will take on the league's best international players also voted by the fans in the main event of a special UFL playdate at the Rizal Memorial Stadium.

After lifting Ceres to the top of the league table, Ali Go earned opportunity to coach the All-Filipino Team.
