Erika’s entering the call-up list is the novelty for Athletic Club to confront the Basque derby tomorrow, with kick off at five in the afternoon, in Zubieta. Once this morning’s training ended, Juan Luis Fuentes has given the call-up list of players for the encounter corresponding to the third Womens’ First Division fixture: Ainhoa, Andere, Arranz, Itxaso, J. Flaviano, Nekane, Tzibi, I. Murua, Iraia, Orueta, Manu, Gangoiti, Olabarrieta, Ibarra, Beristain, Erika, Guru and Irene.
The rojiblanco coach values the addition in the call-up list of the player from Navarre as quite positive, ‘she is an important player for the team and given the competition there will be to occupy the first positions on the table, all the players are necessary so that each one contributes their quality to the team’.
Athletic and Real are two of the five teams that count their matches by victories which gives certain importance to the derby. Juan Luis Fuentes recognizes that ‘the position that both teams occupy in the classification gives greater incentive to the match, but the team is going there convinced of its possibilities and we hope to return on Sunday with a positive outcome’.
