    Good for them though – what a great effort to get that far!

    Very promising by the sounds of it if they stick with it.

    Incredible! Where do these ladies play when they are in Bermuda?

    The US has over 1.3 million girls in their junior soccer program. I’m not sure Bermuda would ever be able to compete on that level. Hopefully this team is given every opportunity to reach their full potential.

    That picture makes me proud to be Bermudian.

    Congratulations Ladies.
