We managed to tie Iceland today. It was so exciting. We got scored on in the first 2 minutes of the match but managed to pull it together and get the tie to head back to Iceland with. I’m so proud of our team. I really believe if we put together the effort with the fight I have seen since I have been with this team that we can do it.
Its been hard for me not to be a part of it and to be watching because of the stupid injury I had last weekend. On one hand I am really grateful that in such an awkward tackle I managed to escape relatively unscathed, but on the flip side of it, I am pretty sure that if this had happened a week or two prior to when it did, I would have been fine for the match today and Thursday. So bummed out.
I guess these things happen, I’m trying to be positive, but being in the thick of it and watching everyone out there fighting so hard for something, it was just hard to be only able to watch.
Anyways, I guess again its just one of those tests where you have to just accept that life hands you lemons sometimes and just focus on yourself and working as hard as you can to be as good as you can, with the idea that sooner or later you will be rewarded for putting that work in.
That being said, fingers crossed we get it done in Iceland and qualify!
