Tessa Dubois-Phillips – Featured Player of The Week

By Fusion FC

tess-featureQ: You recently went on a trip to Penticton. How did you find that experience?
A: We played some bigger and more physical girls than we were used to playing, however, from that experience we learned to be fearless and work very hard to succeed. On and off the pitch, we became closer as a team. It was a fun weekend.

Q: How does training with Fusion compare to what you have experienced growing up?
A: Training with Fusion has been a great learning experience for me as a player overall. We are expected to do things that will help our games like goal setting, or watching videos of great soccer players or accomplishments like Leicester City’s big win this year. We practice at a faster and more intense pace, and we do more fitness.

Q: You recently participated in the Umbro Cup. How did it go? What will you take from that experience?
A: We experienced some pretty tough games throughout the tournament, but it was a great for the team because we understand what we need to improve on now. We learned that even when we are losing, we cannot give up or panic. We always have to work our hardest from the first to the last minute of the game.

Q: What are some of your personal goals for the rest of this season?
A: One of my personal goals for this season is to try my hardest and always work to improve as a player. My other personal goal is to work and improve on my left foot by trying to use it as much as possible.

Q: Who is your pick to win the upcoming Euro?
A: I like England, because they have lots of Liverpool players and I also like Vardy. Otherwise, France will be tough to beat with Pogba, Griezmann and Liverpool’s Sakho.
