Team USA applauds local supporters

Team United States of America (USA) has applauded the people of Port Moresby for the great support during their matches throughout the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup 2016.

USA coach Michelle French admitted that her players have consistently talked about how incredibly the fan’s support has been.

“When you’re coming in for a game you never know if anyone will be out there cheering for you.

“The supporters always motivate the players when they start chanting their names.

“We tend to feed off the energy of the crowd so it’s been an absolutely fantastic experience so far playing in front of the local people and we look forward to the next game,” French said.

USA will take on Japan in the semi-final scheduled on Tuesday, November 29. 

The second semi-final will be between Korea DPR and France.
