Andrea Faria was the spokeswoman for the national women’s football team, returning to training after a win against Greece (1–0) in a friendly. The Benfica player highlighted the team’s positive preparations for the 2022 European Championships, which will be played in England.
“We gave positive signs, our preparation is on a good track and, although we were not as effective in the second game, we had many opportunities and we showed quality. I think, once again, we have proved that we are on a good track”, he told reporters, also talking about the rotation promoted by Francisco Neto in the two matches with Greece: “It means that we are all good at training and we are at the level of each one. It’s really cool. Let’s hope this continues. It’s a reflection of the evolution of women’s football.”
Finally, Andrea Faria also eyed a duel with Portugal’s last rival, Australia, before moving to England.
«This is a team that has developed a lot over the years, very close to the level of the teams that Portugal will face in the European Championship. Against Australia, we expect to continue showing positive signs. I believe we will show that we are ready to enter the European Championship on the right foot”, he concluded.
