What a World Cup!!!!!!
The under 17 Girls world cup has finished. It was hold in New Zealand and was an amazing show piece of football.
You would have to give this cup 10/10, over 200 thousand people showed up to the matches, record attendances for a female sporting event in New Zealand, big tv audience, the skill level, the support of this cup has blown Fifa away and what a great advertisement it was for young girls to get into sport.
I was shocked by the standard of football, shock that my fellow kiwis turned up, and the players themselves were great with the fans and the media, there is actually not enough words in the dictionary to sum up what a great event it was.
Their were plenty of goals, a penalty shootout, you couldn't ask for more drama.
Superstars were made.
Thanks once again to Fifa for giving the cup to New Zealand, lets hope more cups will come our way in the years to come.
