Despite the uncertainty surrounding the team at this time, Terrence Romeo is still eager to suit up for Gilas Pilipinas if given the chance.

“I’m excited,” he said on Monday during the Chooks-to-Go-Gilas Pilipinas Manok ng Bayan press conference at Makati Shangri-la.

“Hopefully, I can still play for the country while I’m still young because that’s always been my dream, because when you get older, as much as you want to represent the country, it’s going to be harder. As long as there’s an opportunity to play for the country, I’ll play.”

Romeo previously donned the national tri-colors in the 2015 Fiba Asia Championship and the 2016 Fiba Olympic Qualifying Tournament, where he dazzled the crowd with his scoring outbursts.

Coach Chot Reyes announced last month that all 12 PBA teams will lend at least a player each to play alongside the cadets for the Gilas pool for next year’s international competitions.

The pool will be announced on January once Fiba Asia irons out its schedule for 2017.

But for Romeo, all he’s thankful for is that the window is still open for him to represent the country.’

“We’re happy because we’re still there and we still have a chance to compete against the younger cadets. At the end of the day, everybody wants to play for the country. Whoever is fortunate to be chosen, the important thing is we’re all united in supporting them. We’ll give our best and give all of our hearts.”
