Team leader Eglantina Zingg
"We are the ones who know that running after a dream is not enough.
We must take the lead,
And keep going, until we achieve our dream.
We are the ones who cover our backs from any team that plays against us.
We are a team of girls,
That will change history.
We are the opponents of those who say that we cannot and should not.
With each goal, we change the rules of what they expect from us as women.
We are the ones who not only play soccer; We are: #Goleadoras!
GOOD LUCK GOLEADORAS!
