Alex Scott here! I just wanted to drop you all a quick note and let you know what I have been up to and what I am going to be up to over the coming weeks/month.
As you all may be aware, this is a HUGE year for Women's soccer and a HUGE year for me and my national team, England. This year is the women's WORLD CUP which is being held in Germany- I will be so excited if i get the chance to be a part of it because it is going to be the biggest and the best Women's World Cup yet!!! (I can't assume that I'm already there because I have to work hard to make sure I make the roster, so please all keep your fingers crossed for me).
I have just come back from Cyprus with my national team were we were competing in the the Cyprus Cup. This was good preparation for us as we got to play 4 games and do lots of team training-- which meant doing A LOT of ice bath's (this is the not-so-nice part, but it really does help your legs recovery quickly from muscle pain).
When I was in Cyprus, I came across my fellow PUMA athlete Karina LeBlanc (KK)-- she was in Cyprus with her National team (Canada) and they went on to win the cup. told KK we will see her in the final next year,ha.
With Cyprus over, it was time for me to head back to England for 1 day where I had to pick up my suitcases, say my goodbyes to my family and friends and head off to sunny Florida were my focus now has to switch from concentrating on a World cup to concentrating on my team the Boston Breakers and doing pre season with the team.
I have been playing for the Boston Breakers for 2 years now and this is going to be my 3rd season, so it is always nice to come back to the team and see old faces as well as meeting new faces that are trying out for the team and working as hard as they can so coach will pick them and they make the final roster.
This year is going to be a very busy one and I will be spending a lot of time on a airplane, but I will do my best to keep you all updated with what I am doing and were I am in the world- so make sure you keep checking back on the PUMA website for my next update!
See you all soon.
Alex.... 'Love Equals Football' keep smiling :0)
