The game started with men only, so there is obviously a lot of experience there but I think it’s fantastic that there are so many women involved because the future of the sport relies always on the former athletes and in this case, it’s women,” External link

Everyone knows the FIFA dates but the colleges in the US are not related to FIFA, not under the FIFA umbrella, so they don't have to release them. It's very disappointing. "It's the reality of college football. They tried everything to get released but it's not the players' fault. I found out last week, not earlier, and that’s very disappointing. I’ve seen this issue in many situations. They promise golden mountains, they promise that you are released for international duty. But that’s the coach promising that. And then the professor says you cannot go, otherwise we stop your scholarship. So the players have no choice” External link

Vera Pauw said : "It has been a long journey for the entire team, some of the players have been with us since the qualifiers for the Olympics, but unfortunately I can only take 22. We had to look at the balance of the team and I believe we have made the right choice. It was not an easy decision to make though as any of the us who are not going to Rio had as much of a chance as those who are in," "But I have confidence that the squad we have selected will represent us well in Brazil. We did well in the three games we played recently - two against The Netherlands and one against the USA - and this has given me hope that we can make our mark at the Olympics. At this stage the only thing left is for the South Africans to be behind this team as that will further boost our confidence" External link

Vera Pauw said : "It is the first time in my career that I can say to my team 'congratulations and I am proud' despite a defeat. However, we need to realise that at this level the few chances you get you have to go for goal, and we didn't do so. We have been working on that for a long time, and during pressure times if you don't have the guts to fail, you will never succeed," External link

allafrica Monday, July 11, 2016 5:18:00 PM EAT

Vera Pauw added : "We can also be proud as staff that the players were ready. We have Elisabeth Migchelsen, who is doing all the scouting. She prepared all the details about this team (USA) and we had to select those that were important for the players, and not overload them, just get key things in our preparation," "I must say the biggest task was to get them ready for the atmosphere, during the singing of the national anthem of the USA for example, and playing against those big stars that they admire, but had to be equal with them at the same time. My players had to be on the same level with them otherwise you find yourself 5-0 down in no time. I also think we surprised the USA because the strategy was to press forward and not park the bus. The biggest win for us today is that against the World Champions we were able to push them into their own half. I am excited because you can see the difference between this team now and about a month ago against the Netherlands, we have made immense improvement" External link

allafrica Monday, July 11, 2016 5:18:00 PM EAT

Vera Pauw said : "We are very excited that we will be playing them and the nerves are kicking in a little bit, but we will just have to fight through the game and take everything we can, see where we end. I don't think my team will collapse at any point, I think when things are not going our way we can still pick ourselves up and go with the team plan and plan again," "But we will see tomorrow how strong we are and how strong they are because everyone knows it is the first time we play the Olympic and World Champions, they are completely ruling in the world - but it's the best preparation for the Olympics. Hopefully after this game then we know exactly what we can or cannot do, and then set our game plan for the Olympics" External link

allafrica Monday, July 11, 2016 5:18:00 PM EAT

Vera Pauw added : "We have seen all their games up to so far, we know what to expect but we haven't felt it yet because you need to experience it on the field, and that pressure from the USA will be something of a shock but then it's the only way to get used to it and to fight it through, to toughen up. It will be more or less a war on the pitch. Their style is of going all our and fight for a win because they are also preparing for the Olympics and they are also fighting for places in the final squad, so whoever is plays will be tough," External link

allafrica Monday, July 11, 2016 5:18:00 PM EAT

Vera Pauw said : "It has been a tough trip, it was very long and took us about 32 hours to reach our destination - which is much longer than we had anticipated. To adapt to that we had to make some changes to our programme. Instead of what we usually do - that is staying up as long as possible to get over jetlag - we did things differently. We let the players sleep early enough to get some rest so that come Saturday we still in the balance. After a long travel like that we had to do some loosening up, which we did at a nearby park from our hotel. This is almost the same thing the team will experience when we travel to Brazil for the Olympics, but it will be a shorter flight as it is in the Southern Hemisphere," External link

thetimes-za Tuesday, July 5, 2016 6:37:00 PM EAT

Vera Pauw said : "The start of the last phase of preparations was when we faced Zimbabwe in an international friendly. Then we wanted a top team, but not from the top five in the world, just something in the middle that is not too high for us to handle. Fortunately we were able to play The Netherlands. The USA is the next step," "We build it up from top Africa, to sub-top in the world (Holland) to the very top, USA - this is the biggest game you can imagine. We might be hammered by a huge margin, even though I don't think that will happen, but even then it is still worthwhile to get that experience now than at the Olympics. After the USA we will play New Zealand, which is the same kind of pressure but their football level is just a little bit lower than the USA. So that is the buildup from the bottom to the top - it's a perfect build-up for the Olympics" External link

allafrica Saturday, June 25, 2016 9:01:00 AM EAT

Vera Pauw added : "We will see against the USA, we have never played at that level, but we are preparing for it and we are doing everything we can to give them a good game. We will see if it is too high, but on the other hand at the Olympics we will face Brazil, which is just two places lower than USA, so we have to be ready - and the only way is to play these games," External link

allafrica Saturday, June 25, 2016 9:01:00 AM EAT

Vera Pauw said : "The Netherlands is ranked 13th in the world, they have been to the last 16 of the World Cup - that in itself shows that a 1-0 and 2-0 defeat is not something to be embarrassed about or that we have not done well, even though as a sportsperson you always want to win and the same goes for the players. The fact is we had our chances but did not use them. We have seen that we we can definitely play against any team," External link

allafrica Wednesday, June 8, 2016 6:42:00 PM EAT

Vera Pauw said : "At the start my players were nervous, thinking that The Netherlands is a top country, and didn't know what to expect. I could see they had too much respect for them but from the moment they felt they could play against them, they got more confident. At half time we made a few changes - and this helped us in the second half as it stopped the Dutch team from going forward. They didn't know how to get behind our defence, and we ended up with better chances. We could have scored at least two goals," External link

allafrica Monday, June 6, 2016 12:46:00 PM EAT

Vera Pauw concluded : "We have to be honest because the Dutch team did not play all their top players, so Tuesday will not be any easier, infact it will be harder. But that is good for us to show we can also step up a gear as we go into the Olympics - move from strength to strength. We need to see how we perform when they have their full squad. Today we definitely showed what we are capable of," External link

Vera Pauw said : "It is crucial because without these kind of games you will never be able to face Sweden in that opening game at the Olympics and we will get a shock of our lives. But what is also good is that in their (Holland) last qualifier they played against Sweden, so we can compare what we do against them in relation to what they did against Sweden. It was a very close match, so much so that Netherlands almost qualified for the Olympics. So these two matches are against an opponent that will really test us and I hope they teach us what we need to learn in the last few weeks before the Olympics," External link

The truth is we might suffer a big defeat - I don't think so though but we will be ready for the fight. And if we get a big defeat it will be a lesson to show which way not to play, and which strategy not to use. But Banyana Banyana players are talented and we always push ourselves, and now we have made a big jump - it might not be too big but we can only see that in such games against the Netherlands," External link

Vera Pauw said : "The worst job of any coach in the world is to have to trim down the squad to the required official number. Unfortunately it is something that has to be done. If truth be told I hate my job when it comes to having to leave players out of the squad. And, sadly, I am well aware that I am destroying dreams so it is not something we take very lightly - we put very serious thoughts into the process that has been going on for weeks now," "But I would like to say to the players that are out of the squad, not all is totally lost because if there is a need for them to be recalled we will certainly do so. Should there be an injury they will be the first to be contacted so they cannot afford to lose hope or take it easy, they need to continue training so that if that call comes, they are ready. So the bottom line is the door is not closed on them" External link

Vera Pauw said : "It has been a long journey for the entire team, some of the players have been with us since the qualifiers for the Olympics, but unfortunately I can only take 22. We had to look at the balance of the team and I believe we have made the right choice. It was not an easy decision to make though as any of the us who are not going to Rio had as much of a chance as those who are in," "But I have confidence that the squad we have selected will represent us well in Brazil. We did well in the three games we played recently - two against The Netherlands and one against the USA - and this has given me hope that we can make our mark at the Olympics. At this stage the only thing left is for the South Africans to be behind this team as that will further boost our confidence" External link

Vera Pauw said : "It is the first time in my career that I can say to my team 'congratulations and I am proud' despite a defeat. However, we need to realise that at this level the few chances you get you have to go for goal, and we didn't do so. We have been working on that for a long time, and during pressure times if you don't have the guts to fail, you will never succeed," External link

Vera Pauw added : "We can also be proud as staff that the players were ready. We have Elisabeth Migchelsen, who is doing all the scouting. She prepared all the details about this team (USA) and we had to select those that were important for the players, and not overload them, just get key things in our preparation," "I must say the biggest task was to get them ready for the atmosphere, during the singing of the national anthem of the USA for example, and playing against those big stars that they admire, but had to be equal with them at the same time. My players had to be on the same level with them otherwise you find yourself 5-0 down in no time. I also think we surprised the USA because the strategy was to press forward and not park the bus. The biggest win for us today is that against the World Champions we were able to push them into their own half. I am excited because you can see the difference between this team now and about a month ago against the Netherlands, we have made immense improvement" External link

Vera Pauw said : "We are very excited that we will be playing them and the nerves are kicking in a little bit, but we will just have to fight through the game and take everything we can, see where we end. I don't think my team will collapse at any point, I think when things are not going our way we can still pick ourselves up and go with the team plan and plan again," "But we will see tomorrow how strong we are and how strong they are because everyone knows it is the first time we play the Olympic and World Champions, they are completely ruling in the world - but it's the best preparation for the Olympics. Hopefully after this game then we know exactly what we can or cannot do, and then set our game plan for the Olympics" External link

allafrica Monday, July 11, 2016 5:18:00 PM EAT

Vera Pauw added : "We have seen all their games up to so far, we know what to expect but we haven't felt it yet because you need to experience it on the field, and that pressure from the USA will be something of a shock but then it's the only way to get used to it and to fight it through, to toughen up. It will be more or less a war on the pitch. Their style is of going all our and fight for a win because they are also preparing for the Olympics and they are also fighting for places in the final squad, so whoever is plays will be tough," External link

Vera Pauw said : "It has been a tough trip, it was very long and took us about 32 hours to reach our destination - which is much longer than we had anticipated. To adapt to that we had to make some changes to our programme. Instead of what we usually do - that is staying up as long as possible to get over jetlag - we did things differently. We let the players sleep early enough to get some rest so that come Saturday we still in the balance. After a long travel like that we had to do some loosening up, which we did at a nearby park from our hotel. This is almost the same thing the team will experience when we travel to Brazil for the Olympics, but it will be a shorter flight as it is in the Southern Hemisphere," External link

Vera Pauw said : "The start of the last phase of preparations was when we faced Zimbabwe in an international friendly. Then we wanted a top team, but not from the top five in the world, just something in the middle that is not too high for us to handle. Fortunately we were able to play The Netherlands. The USA is the next step," "We build it up from top Africa, to sub-top in the world (Holland) to the very top, USA - this is the biggest game you can imagine. We might be hammered by a huge margin, even though I don't think that will happen, but even then it is still worthwhile to get that experience now than at the Olympics. After the USA we will play New Zealand, which is the same kind of pressure but their football level is just a little bit lower than the USA. So that is the buildup from the bottom to the top - it's a perfect build-up for the Olympics" External link

allafrica Saturday, June 25, 2016 9:01:00 AM EAT

Vera Pauw added : "We will see against the USA, we have never played at that level, but we are preparing for it and we are doing everything we can to give them a good game. We will see if it is too high, but on the other hand at the Olympics we will face Brazil, which is just two places lower than USA, so we have to be ready - and the only way is to play these games," External link

allafrica Saturday, June 25, 2016 9:01:00 AM EAT

Vera Pauw said : "The Netherlands is ranked 13th in the world, they have been to the last 16 of the World Cup - that in itself shows that a 1-0 and 2-0 defeat is not something to be embarrassed about or that we have not done well, even though as a sportsperson you always want to win and the same goes for the players. The fact is we had our chances but did not use them. We have seen that we we can definitely play against any team," External link

allafrica Wednesday, June 8, 2016 6:42:00 PM EAT

Vera Pauw said : "At the start my players were nervous, thinking that The Netherlands is a top country, and didn't know what to expect. I could see they had too much respect for them but from the moment they felt they could play against them, they got more confident. At half time we made a few changes - and this helped us in the second half as it stopped the Dutch team from going forward. They didn't know how to get behind our defence, and we ended up with better chances. We could have scored at least two goals," External link

allafrica Monday, June 6, 2016 12:46:00 PM EAT

Vera Pauw concluded : "We have to be honest because the Dutch team did not play all their top players, so Tuesday will not be any easier, infact it will be harder. But that is good for us to show we can also step up a gear as we go into the Olympics - move from strength to strength. We need to see how we perform when they have their full squad. Today we definitely showed what we are capable of," External link

Vera Pauw said : "It is crucial because without these kind of games you will never be able to face Sweden in that opening game at the Olympics and we will get a shock of our lives. But what is also good is that in their (Holland) last qualifier they played against Sweden, so we can compare what we do against them in relation to what they did against Sweden. It was a very close match, so much so that Netherlands almost qualified for the Olympics. So these two matches are against an opponent that will really test us and I hope they teach us what we need to learn in the last few weeks before the Olympics," External link

Vera Pauw added : "We don't know our limits, we don't know our ceiling because we have never played too high an opposition like the Netherlands in this environment. The truth is we might suffer a big defeat - I don't think so though but we will be ready for the fight. And if we get a big defeat it will be a lesson to show which way not to play, and which strategy not to use. But Banyana Banyana players are talented and we always push ourselves, and now we have made a big jump - it might not be too big but we can only see that in such games against the Netherlands," External link

Vera Pauw said : "The worst job of any coach in the world is to have to trim down the squad to the required official number. Unfortunately it is something that has to be done. If truth be told I hate my job when it comes to having to leave players out of the squad. And, sadly, I am well aware that I am destroying dreams so it is not something we take very lightly - we put very serious thoughts into the process that has been going on for weeks now," "But I would like to say to the players that are out of the squad, not all is totally lost because if there is a need for them to be recalled we will certainly do so. Should there be an injury they will be the first to be contacted so they cannot afford to lose hope or take it easy, they need to continue training so that if that call comes, they are ready. So the bottom line is the door is not closed on them" External link
