US Women must focus on France

A day after the sensational game against Brazil soccer’s all-day business sets in. While the fans are still celebrating, the players now face the challenge to settle down and focus on the next task. It is a difficult one.

A game such as the one against Brazil is difficult to top. Performing for 123+ minutes on the highest level is difficult enough, to take the performance to the next game is actually much more difficult. The catch is, the U.S. have to manage the task. Wednesday’s game against France won’t be easier. For those that haven’t caught up to the events in Germany, the competition became much more tight. France is one of the teams that have entered the world stage and they are eager to show they can do more. Over are the group games, every mistake is capital punishment. Ask the Germans, they know what I am talking about.

With all the red flags going up, I still trust that the U.S. women will manage this challenge as well. The top players, Hope Solo and Abby Wambach, have showed me that they are completely focused on this tournament and are prepared for everything. If they manage, and I am sure they will, to lead the team on the field again, we will enjoy a World Cup final with U.S. participation. Good luck, girls.
