Highly-touted forward Christian Standhardinger finally showed up at Gilas Pilipinas’ Wednesday afternoon practice at Meralco Gym.

The 27-year-old Fil-German made his first public appearance with the national team as he is set to be a part of the Philippines’ squad for the 2017 Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in August.
