Match of the Day - - Motd Interview -

“Hi MOTD! I play in the No.10 role, so I’m an at­tack­ing player. I like to score and cre­ate goals and push the team for­ward – I’m a bit like Philippe Coutinho!” CARO­LINE SAYS: “I scored a free-kick once against Arse­nal which was at a re­ally im­por­tant stage of the game. That one stands out the most. It was about 30 yards out!” CARO­LINE SAYS: “I watched a lot of foot­ball grow­ing up. My favourite player was Zine­dine Zi­dane – his shirt was the first one I ever had!”

“I’ve played since I was three years old. I joined a boys’ team be­cause that’s all there was where I lived at the time. I was pretty ner­vous be­cause I was the only girl on the team, but no-one cared so it was fine. When I was ten I switched to play for a girls’ team!”

“The most im­por­tant thing when you’re young is to en­joy your foot­ball and fo­cus on im­prov­ing as a player. Make sure you main­tain a good at­ti­tude, set goals and work hard at reach­ing them!”
