Here is a little something for the football lovers out there that have been watching the Olympic games and supporting the great game.
Although the Team (South Africa) didn’t exactly reach our goal we wanted by qualifying through to the next round, we are still very proud of ourselves by showing the world what kind of football we are able to play. There’s been a lot of people, fans around the world that have enjoyed watching us play. Still receiving a lot of messages, congratulating us on putting up a good fight against teams that are highly profiled.
As many of you already know that the league in South African Womens football is not so successful, we still managed to make it to the Olympics and played our hearts out, and for me, thats all that counts.
Now that the team is back home with our families and friends and sharing our experiences, we know that in a few weeks time we will be back together again, preparing and working hard for another mission ahead….. The African Womens Championship games that will be held in Equatorial Guinea later this year. This tournament will be important for us to show the African Teams what we have learnt and gained from our Olympic experiences.
For now we all at home, having a good rest and still watching the Olympic games. Its a great feeling to know that I was a participant in the London 2012 games. I am so proud.
Thank you once again to everyone that have supported Team South Africa. You have made us all realize just how important and special we are. Will keep you all updated on the African Womens Championship games.
Lots of Soccer Love
