Pamela González interview on Women’s Soccer United
Pamela González: “U-17 Women’s World Cup very positive for Uruguayan women’s football”
Quick, determined, hard-working and with an eye for goal, Uruguayan midfielder Pamela González has racked up an impressive list of accomplishments in her relatively short career.
Still just 23 years of age, Pamela can boast two Uruguayan titles with Colón FC (2013 & 2014), appearances for her country at two Copa América Femeninas (2014 & 2018), as well as playing a central role in current club Málaga CF’s promotion from the Spanish second division in 2017/18.
Dubbed “the motor of our team” by keeper Chelsea Ashurst, Pamela remains a first-choice for coach Antonio Contreras’ side – who are currently battling hard to avoid the drop from Spain’s top flight: La Liga Iberdrola. In an exclusive chat with Women’s Soccer United, La Celeste midfielder discussed her time at Málaga, her evolution as a player and the legacy of the FIFA Women’s U-17 World Cup Uruguay 2018.
UK-born but currently based in Spain, I’ve been covering men’s and women’s football for UEFA.com for several years, including trips to two Women’s U-19 European Championships
