    “We wanted to do what we’ve done the last two games: go out fast, apply pressure and play as a team. that’s exactly what we did. It was very nice to see a lot of different players scoring goals today. we won the series and we will celebrate today, but tomorrow we go back to work. If we bring the same game that we had today [to the U-18 Women’s World Cup in December] we are going to be successful because we care about each other and we want everyone to be successful.”

    “It’s a great feeling to win, [the sweep] shows how close we are as a group. We have been very united and we bring energy to each game. everyone was excited, we had a lot of offense throughout the game. We didn’t spend a lot of time in our [defensive] zone, which created opportunities for us. the scoreboard shows we were able to capitalize on those [opportunities].”

The last three weeks have been the best experience of my life, it was a dream come true when I heard that I was part of the team. we have a great group here; I couldn’t ask for anything more.

    “Our group vibe was outstanding today. anytime you can play against the [united states], it’s going to be a close, close battle. we lost the game, but I couldn’t be more proud of the effort we put in. [our players] were doing everything we wanted them to do. they were testing things, working on the concepts that we talked about. his effort was there. Unfortunately, we didn’t get that game-tying goal, but it didn’t come without effort.”
