Westfield Australian Under 13 Girls AFC squad named
Westfield Australian Under 13 Girls squad named for AFC Under 13 Girls Festival of Football
Westfield Australian Under 13 Girls National Team Head Coach Nicola Williams has named her squad that will participate in the AFC - Festival of Football in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, from 20th June to 3rd July 2010.
The squad was selected from a squad of thirty (30) players that were initially identified at the 2010 FFA National Junior Championships for Girls to attend a training camp at the Australian Institute of Sport.
“What we looked for in the selection camp was how well the players were adapting to playing in and understanding what the FFA curriculum is implementing,” said Head Coach Nicola Williams.
“With players able to spend more time with the ball it gave us the chance to see how they play individually and as part of a team which made it easier to identify a squad that can progress well both within the framework of the curriculum and as footballers.
“There were some standouts in the midfield and attack to choose from and I believe we have selected a group of players that will develop well with the style of play we are looking to employ and be highly competitive at next month-s AFC Festival of Football.
“The girls have been following the Westfield Matildas progress at the (AFC) Asian Cup and I think you-ll see a few future Westfield Matildas come from this group of players.”
The AFC Under 13 - Festival of Football will be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam from the 20h June to 3rd July 2010.
