Coach Rozo I salute you and your Coffee Potters. Your girls are individually the most skilled on the ball that I have seen in this tournament. They raise women's soccer a cut above "bigger, stronger, faster" the standards that now rule the player selection of US, Germany, Sweden, etc. teams and so are a joy to watch. This is your debut, Sir, so ensure your charges keep their sense of identity and joy that comes from pure ball control. Their self-confidence will soon expand into one-touch passing and shooting. Then they will be feared by us all.
