Good lesson to learn: Cole

The Digicel National Women’s football side lost its first warm-up match 2-3 against the Westfield High School yesterday at the Victoria grounds in Sydney, Australia.

Coach Lisa Cole said it was a disappointing result but a good lesson to learn.

“It was disappointing but good, we need to learn these lessons now. With some good individual performances and some very poor performances on the day as well.”

“We didn’t play well but had some good moments. Something to build on. We should have been good enough to win but didn’t have the quality on the day,”

She said Westfield was a young team with very good players and well organized.

“It is very clear now to the players that good habits matter. Opening up early, taking a positive first touch, playing quickly, etc. All things they get away with in Fiji but won’t get away with at the next level.

“We expect better performance in our next match,” said Cole

Fiji will play two FIFA International friendlies against the Philippines national women’s football side on April 7 and 11.
