The dream is just beginning

This women's football team is just starting their new life and can already feed the dream of glory, like their albicelestes peers.

El sueño recién comienza

A pessimist will say that the girls in the National Team were for the third time out of a World Cup in the first round. I look at the glass half full: the dream is just beginning.

Borrello's  team  is not one more in the short history of the girls and the ball in Argentina. It's a team, first of all. Play something. There are dynamics. Talent. He has proved to have good individualities, and with a future.

There's a band missing to improve. The defense, perhaps, where you have to work the most. But the roof is far away. And it's not unattainable.

As in men, AFA seems to have a plan. A project. A technician. Women, first of all, now have a budget. They're becoming professional. It's not a minor fact. It's the first step. A very important one: recognition. Acceptance. The vision that the category may have a future. Commercial... But a true and solid future. It's very good. And it gives to feed the dream.

It was the first World Cup where we managed to score points. So far, the girls had lost in every match they had played. Now we tie a power like Japan. And another, England, didn't hit us.

The match with Scotland was a golden brooch. That comeback means a lot. Maybe they came in very nervous and fell apart with the first goal against. I don't know. But they raised a 3-0. Oh, laudable. No idea to resign. The genius of the prison in the 90th minute and having to kick him again, gave him an extra seasoning.

We depended on a result that did not happen miraculously (that Cameroon did not win; it did it in the minute '96). It's not important at this stage. What has been achieved, with little work, little international competition, is huge. Illusionates.

The dream is just beginning for these girls.
