women’s team in 1983.That’s an advanced age for any sport.Many years later, When Shui Qingxia recalled this “accident”, her face was still full of incredible.She even told reporters that she thought, “How can I play football?Girls playing football, it’s horrible.”She did not expect that the first women’s soccer team in Shanghai and the Chinese women’s soccer team would become her main theme for most of her life.Shui qingxia later recalled, “In fact, my thoughts were relatively simple.If you play, then play.”But the reality is that, at 17, she needs to start bouncing the ball.Fortunately, she was also a little surprised to discover that she really has a bit of talent in the field.Shortly after her career change, Shui qingxia stood out from more than 100 people and went straight to the first team of Shanghai women’s football team.From ball tossing to dribbling to tactics, only one year later, Shui Qingxia’s name appeared in the Chinese women’s national team.Now mention of Shui

National Games before her retirement, helping The Shanghai Women’s Football Team win the national Games for the second time.It’s something she’s been practicing on her own.After retiring as a coach, Shui Qingxia recalled that set-piece was once a weakness that made her very guilty.”Our defenders were good at heading the ball, but every time I took a corner, I couldn’t hit the spot.I feel embarrassed and guilty.”After her retirement as a coach, Shui Qingxia paid special attention to the psychological adjustment of her team members in addition to being very studious in technical and tactical theory.In her early days as a coach, Shui qingxia was known for her toughness, but later she began to change.”It would have been better to have been a little more encouraging, a little more assertive, a little less assertive…”Shuiqingxia once bare his heart to reporters, “MY own idea is also very simple, just want to let the players know what they need, but the players may not understand.”After working as a coach for more than 20 years, Shui Qingxia will also say: “Nowadays, the players born in the 1990s or 2000s are very different from those born in the 1960s and 1970s.”In her view, the players of her generation were relatively simple and knew right from wrong;Now children may be more “fragile” some, “girls are also more sensitive, may be a word, a tone, will produce some ideas.”It is not only thinking that keeps pace with The Times, but also the combination of high technology and data, which is common in football training, that Shui Qingxia uses with ease.Before becoming the head coach of the Chinese women’s football team, she hired the physical fitness coach of Shanghai Harbour to help.Next year, Shui Qingxia will celebrate her 40th anniversary of playing football.Winning the Asian Cup is like a gift delivered in advance, and the women’s football girls led by Shui Qingxia have a promising future.Upstream news reporter Qiu Jinyi
