Game Day Preview: Freedom Set to Take on Papua New Guinea Flame

The Freedom do not have much time to enjoy their first victory in Women's International Cup history.  Their convincing win yesterday over the Australia side was a great confidence boost, but they will have to focus on the task at hand against a young, skillful Papua New Guinea Flame side.  The average age of the Flame is 18 years old and they will be looking to use their youthful exuberance and speed to their advantage.

The Flame were extinguished by the Canada Northwind 3.7 (25) to 0.0 (0) yesterday in cold, rainy conditions.  However, tonight's forecast is calling for clear skies and should allow PNG to implement their run and carry game plan.

Freedom coach, Leigh Barnes will undoubtedly look to implement tactics to slow down the Flame's speedy attack.  The Freedom's advantage will be their experienced midfield and height in the forward line.
