Tessa Wullaert stressed Wednesday that no one in the Belgian selection takes into account a second place (and therefore possible barrageplek) on the way to the world cup in France. “The second place doesn’t count, we go out for the first place and direct qualification for the world cup”, was the aanvalster clear.
“The focus is on the group”, and put Wullaert after the training of the Red Flames in the National Voetbalcentrum in Tubize from the shore. “I have a feeling that we are after the good results at the Cyprus Cup (where the Belgian women fifth, red.) left. We want to be winning twice in the coming days and our group win. Or the party in Portugal (0-1 win) taught us a lot? Yes, in the sense that it still can and must improve. We arrived in Portugal after resting too much under pressure. We should try more to ruin football. With Italy, I am not yet engaged. That will be a very different party. Italy is more of a counterploeg.”
Wullaert also wanted to just underline that the Flames the past few years, a tremendous evolution have gone through. “In the past, it was rather important to have the lot closed. Now, we want to be goals. And that we can also. We score normally always. We must therefore be ambitious.”
The West-Flemish is currently still under contract at Wolfsburg, but will see her contract at the end of the season to end. “And I will not renew”, she was clear. “I have the proposal from Wolfsburg knocked out, because I find that everything I’ve won in Germany. I want a new league and getting to know my preference goes to England. I am in talks with several clubs from the Premier League. I think that England in the coming years the leading league in Europe will be. I want to hear.”
