England vs Wales
Adam took a trip to Southampton for the Women’s World Cup Qualifier between England and Wales. Don’t let the 0-0 score fool you… this was a feisty affair with a huge crowd and Adam breaks it all down. We hear what Welsh Head Coach and Arsenal legend Jayne Ludlow has to say about her team’s form and why a draw against FIFA ranked #2 England feels like a victory. (6:40’)
We also hear from England gaffer Phil Neville post game as he explains why he’s still proud of his team despite the score. This is a very thoughtful and in-depth presser with subjects spanning from this match, his philosophy on the short corner, SheBelieves and more. (9′)
