The start of a new era...

The start of a new era... - 19 Nov 2010 - Women's Football NewsAfter finishing our World Cup qualifying group, we start again next week when we play Bulgaria in a friendly at Cefn Druids. 
I am excited about this match, which will be the first under a new manager and against a team that we will be confident of beating.
I don't know too much about Bulgaria myself, we have played them once before but I had to pull out of the squad due to injury. I believe we ended up losing the game, so we will be wanting to put the record straight.
It is the start of a new era for us now, we have a new manager in Jarmo Matikainen with a different background, thoughts and ideas. He has great experience within the game and especially women's football, which is going to be great for us. I believe people will see Wales making big steps forward again in this era.
Our last home game against Azerbaijan saw us break all records with a 15-0 victory. Maybe it wasn't the best kind of match before taking on one of the world's best, but it was a game that was good for us. We hadn't got together for a while, so it was good to just enjoy football, to go and just play. We showed all of our attacking abilities, even when going in at half time six or seven goals up we still came back in the second half wanting to score more goals, which is difficult when you are involved in a game like that. Some teams take their foot off the gas, but we were just happy to be playing as a team again and you could see the confidence in the side.
The Sweden game, however, was completely different. I think as a team, we are disappointed by the result, especially the goals they scored. The 5-1 score was a fair reflection but we were guilty of missing some good chances early on - myself included - which, if we had scored, would maybe have changed the way the match went on, but we didn't and then Sweden just controlled the whole game.
Some people may have thought that the matches were ideally played the wrong way round, but personally I don't think it mattered which way we played the games. There are pros and cons to playing Sweden first or second - we were just beaten by a very good side. However, from the game and the chances we did create, and the goal we scored, I think it's safe to say that we are capable of scoring goals against any side.
Since our last game, the Under-17s and Under-19s have both gone through to the next qualifying phase in their respective Euro Championships. This is fantastic news for Wales, it shows we have a great future ahead of us as a nation. We see a few of the Under-19s with us at the camps, and you can see their hunger and desire, which is great. Mix that with their ability, and our future is exciting! I wish them both the very best of luck in their Euro campaigns.
