"We picked our youngest team ever and showed we have talented 17-year-olds. We prepared very well and were disappointed not to go further than the group stage. Our group was tough and it gave the girls opportunities to play against three very different styles of playing the game. There were different challenges in every game and, even though it was disappointing not to play more matches, it was a very positive experience for the future of the girls."
