(October 3, 2010)
Entering the second 1/3 of our season, we match up against Uruguay on Saturday, which also happens to be Leif Erikson Day. Led by my assistant coach from last Fall, Eric Miller, and featuring a few ex-Norway stars, Uruguay is coming in to our game undefeated. However, our girls have been playing stronger and stronger each match, and expect to hand Uruguay their first loss.
Internationally, Uruguay us unranked by FIFA, as they have not played an international match in the past 18 months. Norway remains 7th in the world, and will be spending the next six months preparing for next summer’s World Cup in Germany.
