(November 4, 2010)
Coming off a disappointing match last weekend, Norway retakes the field this Sunday to face Ireland. The Irish are led by Coach Michael Schlein in his second season, and field several strong and familier faces from prior Norway squads, including Micah Livingston, Michaela Tapia, Jenna Garofalo and Morgan Schlein.
Internationally, the Irish women are ranked 30th in the World. They will not be participating in next summer’s World Cup, having finished in the middle of their qualifying group, behind Russia and Switzerland. Norway remains 7th in the world, and had no troubles winning their qualifying group and beating Ukraine both home and away to book their spot in Germany next season.
Always remember - Dublin was founded by Vikings. Ireland remains ours for the taking!
