OSATv TouchLine -- 105 Carolina Morace
OSATv TouchLine host, Anthony Totera, interviews Carolina Morace Head Coach of Canadas Womens Team since February 2009, on the U20 Teams 3rd place finish in the 2010 Guatemala CONCACAF Championships, her approach in changing Canadas style from a long-ball system to a eurocentric short-ball possession game, her focus on developing the mental side of the game, the importance of quality over quantity in player development, the need for more qualified coaches at the younger levels and for coaches to spend more time on the field coaching and less time on administering budgets, and the desirability for National Team members to have more practice/game opportunities together than their current schedules allow. Born in Venice, Morace debuted for the Italian women's national team in 1978, against Yugoslavia, at the age of 14. During her career, she made 153 appearances for Italy, scoring 105 goals. While playing in the Italian national women's league, she scored more than 550 goals. She took part in six European Championships as well as the inaugural FIFA Womens World Cup China 1991, where she scored 4 goals, including a hattrick in the 5-0 win against Chinese Taipei. Morace gained a law degree in 1996 and practised at a legal office in Rome. She has also worked as a football pundit for Italian television.
