The President of the Government, Pedro Sanchez, received this Wednesday at the Palacio de la Moncloa the U-20 women’s team, last world champion in Costa Rica, a milestone that makes the president convinced that this successful generation will be ” world champion also in absolute terms”.

“With the wickers that there are, I am convinced that not only will we compete with many guarantees in the Absolute but that we will also be world champions in absolute terms when it is the World Cup,” said Sanchez during the reception for the national team.

The president defined as “an honor” and “a pride” to be before such a generation. “The president of the CSD told me that you were already U-17 world champions, U-19 European champions and now you have achieved the milestone of making history by winning the U-20 world championship”, he pointed out.

The president thanked the team trained by Pedro Lopez for their “work”, for the “competition” and for having “inspired the entire country”. “In the end we have all recognized ourselves in you, even those of us who don’t know as much about football as I do, you have made us enjoy your game and be inspired,” explained Sanchez.

“I think that women’s football is that spearhead, that vanguard of a women’s sport that is expanding, having much more brilliance, more dignity and that I think should be reciprocated by public administrations,” he said.

The chief executive wanted to emphasize that this reception is a great opportunity to “give visibility to all the talent” of the team and to “work that is often not public”, but that the players have had to develop “from a very early age” , as well as the “sacrifice that all this has entailed” for them, their families, the clubs and the Federation until culminating in that success.

Sanchez recalled the “decided commitment to sport and in particular to women’s sport” made by the Government. “Of all the European funds, Spain is the only country that has a pillar dedicated solely and exclusively to sport, and when we talk about sport we want to talk about women’s sport, which is giving us so much joy in many disciplines and especially in football,” he added. .

On behalf of the national team, its captain, Ana Tejada, took the floor, confessing that this reception was “a pride”. “We know that it is an effort and it is a good reflection of what we are achieving, that we are on the right track, making history,” she celebrated.
