Dennis Villanueva is back ‘home’ in Rome


Philippine Azkals midfielder Dennis Villanueva may look like a tourist next to the Coliseum in Rome, but the landmark is actually a familiar place to him.

That’s because the 23-year-old was born in the Italian capital. Villaneuva, who plays for Global in the Philippines’ United Football League (UFL), recently flew back in Rome to spend the holidays with loved ones.

His parents hail from Laiya, Batangas.
