French news agency AFP on 23/05/2019 said that Chinese female players before leaving for France to compete in the World Women’s Football Cup 2019 must follow the lessons on “patriotism”.
“Fatherland in my heart” is the name of a series of compulsory training courses for the Chinese women’s team. The announcement of the Chinese Football Federation on Tuesday, May 21st explains that “this course helps enlighten the members about the basic rights and obligations of citizens and imbue the principles further.
The image posted on the federated website showed the female players in a classroom, hands holding books and pens, watching a projection screen intently, placed next to the large Chinese flag hanging on the wall.
The course was held when there were only two weeks left until the 2019 Women’s World Cup kicked off in France. The Chinese women’s team in the first match will meet formidable German opponents in the city of Rennes on June 8.
Ranked 16th in the FIFA rankings, the Chinese team is in Group B along with Spain, South Africa, and Germany. Probably with this course, China’s “Steel Roses” hope to defeat Germany’s Mannschaft?
Like the World Cup finals for men, women also have a FIFA world football tournament organized by FIFA as FIFA Women’s World Cup. China was the first country to host the UEFA Women’s World Cup in 1991. In 2007, the most prestigious women’s tournament also returned to this billion-dollar country. Just like men, the World Cup is also held once every 4 years. Every year after the men’s World Cup is held for a year, FIFA Women’s World Cup will be held.
Let’s wait to see what Chinese women football team can achieve this FIFA Women’s World Cup season!
