    Now this is brilliant news if you ask me. Austria and Belgium is no better than us in female football. We only just havent been doin enough in terms of raking up matched…thats why we remain stuck at 30something in the world for years now. This tournament will be a good avenue for the coach to spend more time with his team and instill his philosophy in them better. I wish the Sf would go all the way. The longer they remain in the tournament the better for them
