Last night my 7-year-old daughter fell asleep in her new Matildas shirt. Watching her snuggle down as I turned off the hallway light I wondered what she was dreaming about. Was she scoring a goal? Or maybe hugging her teammates while the crowd roared in celebration? Whatever it was, it was making her smile.
Soccer is a big part of her life. Whether it’s a family kick about, midweek training or Sunday morning games she laces up her boots with glee.
