Having a majority of the squad that had finished 3rd last year and won in 2015 we had high hopes coming into the tournament.
With over 250 girls in 32 teams we faced stiff opposition from the start and after a slow start we were left with a mountain to climb in our last 6 games. I was proud of our fighting spirit but a couple of soft goals proved our undoing in the end.
We finished 3rd in a close group, with 2 losses, 2 draws and 4 fantastic wins but should be happy with the performances against some very physical sides. Well done girls !
