James Joseph Placer Younghusband (born 4 September 1986) is an English–Filipino footballer who plays as right winger. He has been unattached since 2008 but continues to be involved with the Philippines national team.
Younghusband was born in Ashford, Middlesex, England.
Younghusband's career began when he signed for Chelsea in 1996 and signed a scholarship with them at the age of 10. While with Chelsea he made a number of appearances for the youth and reserve team.
Early in 2005, the Philippine Football Federation was alerted to Younghusband's eligibility by a mysterious gamer who allegedly found out about their lineage via the Football Manager series. He and his younger brother Phil were eventually called up to the Southeast Asian nation's football squad, amidst much fanfare. Younghusband participated in the 2005 Southeast Asian Games, which was held in the Philippines.
