sports teams are accustomed to travel. But when the national team is off to the WORLD cup, it becomes something special.
Not only because they have to fight to the finals. They are also more than 8,000 miles away from everything they know.
"Some of it we girls also talk about is that there suddenly is also a time difference to take into account, and I think it's also become hard. That you can't be in contact with family and friends all the time."
It tells the national player Mie Højlund to the B. T..
the national Team traveled to Japan 21. november, and the finals runs with 15. december.
"A month may not sound like a long time, but it can be. It also feels longer when you just intensively living in a hotel room and recharge for the next match. Is it nice to be in contact with the family. It should tilrettelæges," says Mie Højlund with regard to the eight hour difference between Copenhagen and Kumamoto.
She lives on a daily basis in Neyine Odense, while my boyfriend lives in Aarhus, where he studies and plays football in the 2. division. Distance is something they are accustomed to and have got to work.
And just to pair with a, which itself is a part of the sport means a lot.
"It gives very. It makes a big difference compared to someone who does not know how the sports world was. He has understanding of things, and when I'm to the finals, can I call and write home and let my frustration go out over him and be angry," says Mie Højlund and continues:
"It is he understands, and he is good to talk with, for he knows it is not personal, and what the world of sports is going out on. Some times the loader he to me," says landsholdsprofilen about her boyfriend.
He knows the gamete, which also means that he understands when she is away for a long time - as for example now, where the Mie Højlund is raised on the other side of the earth to fight for the gold to Denmark.
"It really means a lot. One has many thoughts, before you leave, and may well be afraid, it will be hard. It really means a lot to know that both family, friends and girlfriend have a great understanding of one's situation. It facilitates," she says.Date Of Update: 23 November 2019, 06:00
