蘇格蘭的克萊爾-埃姆斯利談天使城的 "超現實 "明星們

最後更新於.從蘇格蘭部分

克萊爾-埃姆斯利說,在美國重返足球界後為天使城效力是 "超現實的"。

女演員娜塔莉-波特曼和網球名將塞雷娜-威廉姆斯是天使之城的業主之一。

"這是一個全新的俱樂部,他們的結構非常好,而且是由女性主導的,"這位蘇格蘭前鋒說。

"你感到非常受重視。我們每周都會有爆滿的觀眾,所以這是一個很好的比賽場所。這支球隊很了不起。

"珍妮弗-加納在我們的第一場比賽中就在那裡。她只是喜歡做一個足球媽媽。我當時住在一家酒店,因為我剛到,我看了(加納的電影)《十三歲生日》。

"第二天出去熱身的時候,她站在那裡和我們擊掌。比賽結束後,她給每個人發橘子片,只是和我們聊天。"

事實證明,加利福尼亞是埃姆斯利的家,她可能在周一對陣委內瑞拉的比賽中為蘇格蘭人出場。

"我喜歡它,"她解釋說。"我上大學的時候已經在那裡呆了幾年了。那是在佛羅里達。

"在海岸上,它是如此的好。我哥哥住在那裡,他有他的妻子和兩個孩子。離他們更近,和他們一起度過家庭時光,這很好,所以我實際上並不覺得我離家太遠。"

埃姆斯利是在女足世界盃附加賽中輸給愛爾蘭共和國隊的一員,他說目前在西班牙的訓練營與布羅根-海等一批新球員在一起有助於緩解失望情緒。

埃姆斯利補充說:"我們還在為沒有獲得參賽資格而感到痛苦,"。"這與我們息息相關,我們暫時不會忘記。它是毀滅性的。

"我不認為我們在準備過程中有什麼不同的做法。當晚,它只是沒有按照我們的方式進行。女孩們並不缺乏努力。

"這個訓練營,我們已經有了一張新的面孔。有這樣的環境很好,我們可以繼續前進,現在只是專注於未來。"

Claire Emslie says it is "surreal" playing for Angel City after returning to football in the United States.

Actress Natalie Portman and tennis great Serena Williams are among Angel City's owners.

"It's a brand new club and they've structured it so well and it's very women dominated," said the Scotland forward

"You feel very valued. We're getting sell-out crowds every week so it's a great place to play. The team's amazing.

"Jennifer Garner was there at our first game. She just loves being a soccer mom. I was staying at a hotel because I had just arrived and I had watched (Garner's film) 13 going on 30.

"The next day going out for warm-up she was standing there giving us high fives. After the game, she was handing out orange slices to everyone and just chatting to us."

California has proved to be a home from home for Emslie, who could feature for the Scots against Venezuela on Monday.

"I love it," she explained. "I spent a few years out there already when I was at college. That was in Florida.

"Being over on the coast, it's so nice. My brother lives there, he's got his wife and two kids. It's nice being closer to them and spending family time with them so I don't actually feel that I'm too far from home."

Emslie was part of the team that lost to Republic of Ireland in the Women's World Cup play-offs and says the current camp in Spain with a group of new players like Brogan Hay is helping ease the disappointment.

"We're still hurting from not qualifying," added Emslie. "It sits with us and we're not going to forget that for a while. It is devastating.

"I don't think there's anything we could've done differently in preparation. On the night, it just didn't go our way. No lack of effort from the girls.

"This camp, we've got a new fresh faces. It's nice to have that environment where we can kind of move on and just focus on the future now."
