A day after the 4-0 victory over Israel, the women’s national team trained in Lagos, with the goal of next Tuesday’s match against Germany, at 6 pm, at São Luis Stadium, in Faro, in reference to the World Cup qualifiers Group E.
Coach Francisco Neto relied on all the players, including the players of the first team, who carried out active recovery work. In the end, striker Ana Borges gave a positive assessment of the last match and spoke about the expectations of the meeting with Germany.
“It was very important to win three more points, and even more on Carolina Mendes 100 game day, with the right to hat trickLucia Alves makes her debut. There are three points that make us pursue the supposed objective of this qualification. I feel that the selections above us in classification FIFA, like Germany, respects Portugal more, because we have already proven that we can beat any team, even the most highly rated. It will be a very demanding match, we are talking about Germany which has been crowned world champion twice and the team that has been European champion most of the time,” he said, speaking to the FPF website.
The striker did not hide that she expected difficulties: “Yesterday [quinta-feira, frente a Israel]We controlled the ball and got more. Perhaps, with Germany, it will not be like this. It is a very strong team in which all the players are distinguished and they play for big clubs. We will also play with our team and try to play at our best level. We know the quality and the potential they have, but in the end only they do the math and we want to continue to rely only on ourselves.”
