OTH THE USA AND KOREA WOMEN’S SOCCER TEAMS
FOLLOW THEIR FLAGS ON TO THE PITCH. THEY SALUTE THEIR FLAGS AND PLEDGE THEIR BEST PLAY FOR
THEIR COUNTRY. AFTER SHAKING HANDS, THE REFEREE BLOWS THE WHISTLE, AND JUST LIKE THAT THE
USA VERSES KOREA WOMEN’S MATCH-UP BEGINS. YOU KNOW, THE OPPORTUNITY TO REPRESENT NOT
JUST THE MILITARY AND THE MARINE CORPS, BUT AS A NATION AS A WHOLE IS JUST UNMATCHED.
YOU KNOW, IT’S PRETTY SPECIAL TO BE WEARING THIS, AND IN A COUPLE OF WEEK TURN AROUND
AND PUT MY CAMIS BACK ON. SO I’M JUST REALLY PROUD THIS PARTICULAR MATCH-UP IS IMPORTANT FOR
BOTH TEAMS BECAUSE THEY BOTH LOST THEIR PREVIOUS GAMES TO FRANCE, SO THE WINNER OF THIS GAME
GOES TO THE SEMIFINALS. WITH THEIR BACKS AGAINST THE WALL, THE PLAYERS REALLY PUT THEIR TRAINING
INTO PRACTICE. I JUST APPRECIATE THE WORK THAT THEY PUT INTO
EVERY MINUTE IN PREPARATION NOT ONLY GOING TO THE CAMP, BUT EVERYTHING THEY’VE DONE
HERE. THEY REALLY PUT A LOT IN TO IT, AND I DON’T KNOW I CAN EXPRESS WHAT THAT MEANS
TO ME. THE GAME ENDS WITH A TWO TO NOTHING SCORE,
AND KOREA ADVANCES TO THE SEMIFINALS. ALTHOUGH KATE’S TEAM LOST, SHE FEELS PROUD OF HER
TEAMMATES BECAUSE THEY WERE PLAYING AS A TEAM. WE WORK TOGETHER PUSHING EACH OTHER, DOING
SPRINT, INTERVAL GIVING TOUCHES ON THE BALL, JUST PUT IN THE WORK INDIVIDUALLY, SO WHEN
WE GOT IT TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN AS A TEAM. I’M ARMY SERGEANT MARK BREJCHA, KIMCHEON
SPORTS COMPLEX, KOREA.
