The home-based national women footballers need to play more.
Given that teams in this season’s Women’s League Football (WOLF) played just one round, consisting of 11 matches, national women’s team head coach Stephan De Four found it inadequate and a great contributor to the lack of prime fitness in some players during the just-concluded Concacaf Olympic qualifying group in Couva.
De Four cited player fitness as one of the area needing great improvement.
“We got to get fitter. It’s very difficult when the girls are all over and not getting enough (playing) time. This is our first games out since the team played last year, or somewhere there,” noted De Four, who only had his national players available ten days before the start of the tournament.
“Once we start playing more games, the cohesiveness will come in and the fitness level will start picking up,” De Four stated.
