Aware of the difficulties that Benfica will face, coach Paulo Almeida points out that Conception will also have to stay in ‘sense’ for the attributes that the Portuguese team presents throughout the 50-minute game.

With an easy shot and an excellent exit for the counterattack, as evidenced by the 53 goals scored in the first four games of the southern zone of the national championship, Benfica delivers this card for the first edition of the Intercontinental Cup in the women’s variant, trophy that the former glory of the sport wants to bring to Portugal.

“We are going to play in the first game the champions of Argentina, they have international players and it will be a difficult game for us, but for them as well. We believe in our abilities and we are working to go there to play for the Intercontinental Cup to win. Benfica cannot think otherwise, “said Paulo Almeida, thanking Benfica’s management for their effort to take the athletes to Argentina.

Conception will be the first opponent. It has in its ranks Maria Luciano Agudo, an athlete who is a world reference and for whom Paulo Almeida leaves a serious alert.

“It is ‘only’ the best in Argentina, it is ‘only’ national roller hockey champion and ‘only’ national hockey champion in the field, she can make a difference in a moment of inspiration. that the game is all over her and that Conception has an area player and that seems to have ‘a racket in the hands’, once puts the ball very well to the second pole, “he said.

Despite this, Marlene Sousa stresses that Benfica has the ability to reach the final win the trophy, remembering the debut of Benfica in the European League.

“We know that we are among the best teams in the world, that is what this Intercontinental Cup is made of, we expect a difficult game, a balanced game, but a game where we will do everything we can to win, we have good memories of our debut in international competitions “I’m looking forward to having a good experience in the Intercontinental Cup,” he said.

For this, Paulo Almeida guarantees that his team will enter to win from the first to the last second, as it does in each game, regardless of any interference from third parties during the meeting.

“If you want to win Benfica, you have to leave the pitch on the pitch because we have to leave it as well.” In order to win Benfica they have to be superior to Benfica, so let’s play in a South American country at their home and knowing that the referees are a bit ‘homemade’, but this can not put in the condition of defeated before the game begins, “he finished.

It is certain that the players of Benfica will want to take advantage of this world showcase to mirror the level of Portuguese and European women’s hockey because in the same pavilion is held the Intercontinental Men’s Hockey Ice Hockey Cup, where they are FC Porto, Murialdo Club Patìn, Barcelona and Conception.

“What sets us apart is our ability to go out on a counter-attack, our ability to fight for each game as if it were the last one. Let’s dignify the sweater we wear, regardless of being away from Portugal. “Being in a competition with this dimension is a dream for any athlete. From the moment we arrive we will give everything in the field to be able to win,” concluded Marlene Sousa.
