Female European Championships and Austria is
doing quite well! Wow! Seeing that press conference: they are
very likeable, very competent, very self-confident. Male soccer players
aren’t always that great in press conferences. Although ladies, you have
learned one thing from the male soccer players, that you shouldn’t have learned. That is the mimicry. Ladies, show a little bit more of your facial expressions. Like a smile, like your activity with your eyebrows. That would be much better.
We see it also when the trainer is talking: He also has very
little facial expressions. Now you might say: “who cares
for the facial expressions
when they are winning!” Correct! absolutely! But football is also a matter of
emotions and matter of entertainment and that’s why Jürgen Klopp from Liverpool is such a prominent and such a likeable person. Because we can read his facial
expressions. One further moment that is interesting is, when the soccer player on the left is drinking water. Obviously she isn’t really thirsty and that is normally a signal of insecurity or nervousness. We grab something, we try to
put it in front of our face because that is some sort of security, some sort of wall between us and the others. So ladies, please go on and win and win and win…
when you want even more show more facial expressions. All the best from Ireland. I’m doing here some work and watching the Austrian Team very closely.
