FIFA Women World Cup
July 18, 2011 by staff
FIFA Women World Cup, Japan emerged victorious on Sunday in Germany, the sixth World Cup Women’s World Cup, beating top-ranked United States in a penalty shootout after a 2-2 draw after extra time. The World Cup final was not the only big game in women’s football (soccer) on Sunday. A high level U-13 youth team near Washington – Real Maryland FC – played her own party.
Thirteen-year-old team member Gabby Torres was excited about the championship game between the U.S. and Japan, who wants to be a professional footballer one day. “This shows I can be there too, if I work hard enough, because the girls that are playing were just like me,” she said.
Gabby father and coach, born in Brazil, Kennedy Torres calls the growing popularity of women’s football, especially at the youth level, a surprising phenomenon. “Since I’ve been training for the past six years, every year I see twice the number of girls trying to play soccer and learning the game and, more trainers and coaches trying to encourage girls to reach a level highest it has been great, “said Torres.
Torres says he encourages his players to imagine they scoring the winning goal in the World Cup.
“I bet if you ask many of these players who are playing today in the final of the World Cup, which was inspired in 1999 when the U.S. won the World Cup, so maybe the day of today, which saw some players that within eight years or 12 years from now will be in the final, “said Torres. “So I think that is one of the things we watch the World Cup is allowed to dream.”
Emotions were high as the girls watched the game at a local restaurant. Even dressed up, wearing shirts USA and waving American flags.
