“There are no easy games here, every team can beat each other. It’s great for the fans to watch and enjoy.”
Pedro Martinez Losa has been in the country less than a month but he already knows how unpredictable English football is.
The former Western New York Flash coach took charge of his first game against Bristol Academy two weeks ago and his side had to come from two goals behind to secure a 4-3 win thanks to another Kelly Smith hat-trick.
After coming so close to a surprise defeat, Martinez Losa is preparing for an even tougher challenge in his first home game of the season against Liverpool on Sunday.
"We’re going to try to control the game but Liverpool going to be very direct and aggressive, so it’s going to be a 50/50 game that I think will swing in our favour"
“It’s going to be a very high-intensity game," he told Arsenal.com "Liverpool can win the title and they got a good result in the last game so I think they are going to come with everything.
“We’re going to try to control the game but at the same time the opponent is going to be very direct and aggressive, so it’s going to be a 50/50 game that I think will swing in our favour.
“When one team has a certain level of intensity, the first question is, ‘are they capable of keeping this up for the whole game?’ Not all teams are capable of keeping up that level of intensity.
“We also need to be equally as aggressive. We must be concentrated and organised to deal with their directness and win every battle in every area of the pitch.
“We can still qualify for the Champions League and the team are focused on that because they are used to playing in that competition. But we need to concentrate on winning all our games first.”
Tickets will be available from the gate at Boreham Wood FC on Sunday for £5 adults, £2.50 concessions.
