We have played 3 games since the last time i wrote… I’m going to tell you a little bit about it.
The first one.. We lost against a very good Tyresö, 2-0. I think it was a tight game between two good teams, but Tyresö had more clear chances then we had, and our biggest problem of that game was our skill to play as a team… Too many that wanted to do it by themselves.. Too many touches.. And Tyresö really took advantage of our mistakes.
We had a week to regroup and try to change what we did wrong against Tyresö… And we really did.. 7-1 against Umeå speaks for it self! We were really a team this day! Umeå never got in the game, we didn’t let them. We knew how they wanted to play and we pressured them high and I think we scored 6 goals exactly the same.. Anja Mittag scored 4 goals.. Bachmann is getting better and better, and when she plays like that she is one of the best players around! It was nice to show our home crowd how good we really are! Wish there were more people watching though..
And then we have the Piteå game… And we were back to our old selves… Back to too many touches.. and Piteå played really well! Tight, hard and made us make so many mistakes.. But we won, 2-0. it feels good to win even though we didn’t play that well.
I have to mention Elin Rubensson. She is an upcoming star, a young player with so much talent! It’s hard to get a spot in our starting 11, we have so many international superstars.. But Elin is on her way in.. She got 20 min against Piteå, scored and was very good with holding the ball. So watch out you big divas.. Including myself of course.. =)
Now to something else.. I don’t know if you know about Sweden’s result in the Algarve cup… We lost big against both Germany and USA.. 4-0 in both games.. So.. we have a German national team player in our team.. (Anja Mittag).. We had a bet before the game.. If they lost, Anja had to wear my national team jersey to their next trip with the German national team.. And if we lost… I had to bake her a gluten free bread.. with a marzipan German flag on it.. yeah.. we all know how it went..
This saturday we play Vittsjö.. we will be prepared… Skånederby.. bring it on!!
