We are back in Shanghai now for our third group game versus Nigeria which kicks off later tonight. Problem is, there is a monster typhoon headed towards the city! As I look out my hotel window, the rain and the wind are absolutely crazy. Game is still scheduled to kick off at 8 PM, and we will be prepared to play in whatever conditions!
We are not taking this game lightly at all. Nigeria tied Sweden 1-1 and only lost to North Korea 2-0. They have obviously improved a lot in the last couple years. Also, we ultimately want to come first in our group.
The family and friends of the team have been arriving which has been fun! My family got here yesterday, and it is always nice to feel supported and to share the experience with people you are close to. Hopefully, they will stay dry, cheer loud, and help get us the win.
