"From the moment Pia stepped in, she changed the entire dynamic of this team. A completely different philosophy, she is one of the more laid-back coaches I've ever had. A lot of American coaches
want to be involved in every pass, in every play. She likes to sit back, she says, 'You guys are creative, you are soccer players', she wants us to think and read the game for ourselves. Of course

when we were little kids and just played for the hell of it."
