PNG U20 women’s team on final tour in NZ

The PNG U20 women’s football team is currently in New Zealand on their final tour before the FIFA World Cup games begin on November 13.

The side will play three trial matches against New Zealand’s U-20 and U-17 sides to refine their final squad of 21.

However, the PNG side went down 8-0 in their first trial match against the New Zealand U20 squad on Sunday but had some good moments in the game.

PNG U20 women’s coach Lisa Cole after the game encouraged the team to keep working hard in doing the little things every time and trust each other and communicate in the field though they are making gains every time they play.

The team will return on Sunday after completing their other two games against U20 and U17 New Zealand teams.

Papua New Guinea will play Brazil in the opening match of the FIFA U20 Womens World Cup at Sir John Guise stadium on November 13.
