Anelise Karakostas – Featured Player of The Week

By Fusion FC

Anelise-featuredQ: How does it feel to be a part of Fusion again after playing with the Vancouver Island Wave?

It feels so great to be back, at first I was a little nervous to make the switch because I didn’t know if the team would seem different after almost two years, but they welcomed me back, and it’s so much fun being able to play with the people I grew up with.

Q: How has Fusion changed during the time you were gone?
A: I think Fusion has changed a bit because there are some new faces to the coaching staff and a lot of younger players now. It’s also changed with the practices, adding the oval sessions in to make it 4 times a week. It’s also a big change because with the Wave I would only practice twice a week.

Q: Who is your pick to win the Champion’s League this year?
A: I hope Atletico wins the Champions League, I like how they are the underdogs and they always attack and defend as a team.

Q: What has been the highlight of your career to date?
A: A highlight so far was having the opportunity to play on the All-Star Team while being part of the Provincial Development Program.

Q: What are some of your goals after your Fusion FC career?
A: After Fusion I would like to go play at a University, preferably UCLA or Portland. I would also love to make it to national team camps, or be on the team itself. After all of that I want to coach and be able to pass everything that I’ve learned from my coaches to younger soccer players
