What A Great Week of Football
I would like to write a few words to add to this collection of communications. 'Wow' is what I would like to add. Some great games, lots of passion and good attendances at most or all the games.
As someone who has been following, watching and researching the rise of women in sport for many years, not just the participation rates but all the way through to the upper echelon's of the industry, the women's game is going from strength to strength.
The quality of football being played and the intensity has just been awesome, I think England have played some great football, Scotland have been brave and I think/hope they can qualify. At this stage it’s hard to call top teams as they all play such different games and all have different qualities.
This is what I feel adds to the excitement... and the competitiveness … I will be adding more as the games progress and I hope everyone is enjoying it so far :-)
