    Equatorial Guinea!!!!! Brilliant! Have they ever qualified for any major competition in any sport before?

    Fascinating indeed.

    Female football is on the rise here in NZ with an unprecedented number of girls and young women playing the game, so we will be watching the national team and indeed the tournament, closely.

    I look forward to your previews over the coming weeks.

  3. For the benefit of Wimblepool and others, Pitch Invasion posted a fascinating article on Equatorial Guinea last year

    Thanks, Lanterne Rouge. It is fascinating and perhaps we’ll find out more during the World Cup.
