As the male squad enjoys the comfort of their home ground, the female team will be embarking on a journey towards the southern shoreline. The match is scheduled for a delightful early afternoon start, which promises to be an exhilarating experience for all those involved.
At the scheduled time of 12:30 GMT, Marc Skinner’s squad will initiate play against the formidable team of Lewes. Meanwhile, at a comparatively later starting time of 16:30 GMT, Erik ten Hag’s squad will warmly welcome the competitive side of Fulham to the esteemed Old Trafford.
The women’s team is on the verge of achieving a significant milestone in the competition as they look forward to securing a victory that would take them beyond any point they have attained since their return in 2018. Meanwhile, the men’s team has set their sights on reaching their 30th FA Cup semi-final in their quest for glory. Both teams are determined to give their best shot and make a mark in the competition they hold dear.
Ten Hag’s team has had a fruitful cup season with their third entry into the quarter-finals. Their most recent accomplishment was in the Europa League on Thursday evening. During a press conference on Friday afternoon that preceded the Fulham match, the team’s boss emphasized the importance of setting a winning culture.
As the iconic Manchester United, we must emerge victoriously in every game, without fail. Furthermore, we must participate vigorously in all of the leagues that we choose to engage in. This unwavering mindset is the core of our success – the spirit that fuels us to put forth our utmost effort in every match. Whenever we step onto the field, it is with the unyielding conviction that we will triumph over our opponent. In essence, this is the mentality we cultivate – one of dogged determination to achieve victory in every game.
The United Women’s soccer team is set to face off against a team that is situated one league below them. Nonetheless, the head coach of the Reds, Skinner, has announced that he and his team have zero intentions of belittling their Sunday challengers. Instead, they are taking their preparations for the game against Lewes extremely seriously – analyzing all their previous matches to get an understanding of how they play, and to strategize about how they can approach the game to ensure a victory.
The rationale behind this approach is to eliminate any possibility of a sudden upset. Any team can have a stroke of luck or put in a good performance on any given day. However, by generating enough momentum during the game and creating sufficient scoring opportunities, we can neutralize any potential threats posed by our opponents. This is applicable irrespective of whether we are facing Lewes or any other team.
The forthcoming match between United Women and Lewes features the former playing against opponents who operate in a lower tier. However, despite the apparently weaker opposition, Reds’ head coach Skinner is adamant that his side will not underestimate their rivals in any way. Affirming their professional approach to the game, he states: “Our team has been meticulously preparing for the match against Lewes by conducting a thorough analysis of their game style and exploring suitable tactics that we can employ to face them on Sunday.”
The intention behind this approach is to eliminate the possibility of an unexpected upset. On any given day, an opponent could have a glistening performance or receive a stroke of good luck. However, we can counteract this by generating enough momentum in the game, creating numerous opportunities to score. This holds true regardless of our adversary, whether it be a formidable team or someone like Lewes.
As of now, there are only two clubs that have managed to secure a spot in the last eight for both their men’s and women’s teams in their respective competitions. We, fortunately, form a part of this elite group, with our neighbouring rivals Manchester City being the only other club that has achieved this feat.
In the United Kingdom, the BBC iPlayer will be broadcasting live coverage of women’s game, whereas the men’s fixture will be aired by ITV at a later time.
