MANILA, Philippines – A Filipino-Spanish football player is following the footsteps of striker Angel Guirado.

Carlos Alberto Martínez de Murga Olaivar who like Guirado, hails from Andalusia, Southern Spain, joined the Azkals as they prepare for the Long Teng Cup.

The rightback played for Tercera division side Racing Club Portuense in Spain.

Olaivar is the second Azkals player to come from Spain, the 2010 FIFA World Cup champion.

He will join fellow recruit Roland Mueller during Azkals' practices at the Alabang Country Club and at the Rizal Memorial football field.

The 22-year-old De Murga is also eyed to boost the country's under-23 team, which will compete at the Southeast Asian Games in November.
