The Younghusbands' Statement re: Bahrain

Apologies if this is only posted now when it was released yesterday. Happens when you are preoccupied with things.
James and Phil Younghusband will be rejoining the Philippine Men's Football National Team in Kuwait this October 12. The brothers received their call up just last week while in Singapore for the semifinals leg of the 2012 Singapore Cup. They flew back to Manila last Monday evening, October 8 and were ready to rejoin their teammates in Bahrain on Tuesday as they committed to an engagement before they were called up. The PFF however informed the brothers that they can rejoin the team in Kuwait so they have more time for their recovery.

The brothers remain committed to the national team and hope they can help with gain more ground in the upcoming Suzuki Cup.
Update: Rick Olivares has a better explanation here.

My two cents. This got blown much out of proportion. However, if this happened a month from now, God forbid the backlash Phil and James and the PFF will get.
