In the beginning of July we were invited to the four nations tournament in Holland , which took place on the basis of their preparation for the Euro 2009 in Finland . The two other teams we got to play were China and South Africa therefore the tournament was going to be interesting for us, as we have never played either one of them. Since we didn’t qualify for the European Championship most of us were just at the beginning of their preseason, some of us still on vacation. The result of that was a 5-0 loss against the Netherlands who we tied twice before in the qualifiers. After that we woke up a little and showed a good game against China even though we ended up losing 2-0. For the third game our goal was clearly to finally get a win, however South Africa had the same in mind and was more aggressive on the field. In a good game of two equally strong teams we got the short end of the stick and lost 3-2. All in all we had a lot of fun playing teams we don’t normally encounter and we also learned that for the World Cup qualifiers in September we still have a lot of work ahead of us.
