Isabella Perez and Emily Talmi of Placer United U15G 00 Gold have been selected to play against the Japanese Football Association Academy on Sunday, February 15th, at Fallon Park in Dublin. The 00-01 Girls State Pool roster was trimmed down to 18 players to play in this match.
The JFA Academy girls filter players into the final pool of the Japan National Team. They come from all over Japan to stay in Sakai, a city in Osaka Prefecture. They live in a dormitory together, as well as attend school and train at a central facility which is owned by Japan Football Association. There is only one other facility like that in Japan for girls and it’s in Fukushima which was impacted by the great earthquake and tsunami a couple of years ago.
Congratulations girls and good luck!
