Actor Jake Cuenca wants to pursue his dream of becoming a football player.

Cuenca said he plans to try out for the Philippine national football team, also known as the Azkals.

’Yung Jake Cuenca kasi para sa mga tao, usually bad boy, maangas. Pero ang hindi nila alam, susubok ako na maging professional football player next year. Susubok ako mag-Azkals,” he said.

Bukod doon, mama’s boy ako. Mahilig din ako magluto pero mas mahilig akong mag-football,” he added.

Currently, Cuenca is busy taping for ABS-CBN’s hit series “Maria Mercedes” with Jessy Mendiola.

He is also promoting his film, “When The Love Is Gone,” with Alice Dixon, Gabby Concepcion, Andi Eigenmann and Cristine Reyes.

In 2011, Cuenca expressed his interest in joining the Philippine football team. (MNS)
