Despite pressure and knockout rounds, we have all experienced what our ultimate goal is. We are improving in our World Cup preparation for Australia, and we will learn as much as we can from the games we lost.

Thanks to all of you giving me some breathing room during that phase, I was able to unwind much more. I was anxious to see how I might support the team when I came back.
If I continue to play like this, the major World Cup won’t be far behind. He said, “I wanted to play like that because I’ll be contributing more.
