Nicole Mettam sets sights on NZ Under 20's Soccer World Cup Squad
Nicole is actively involved with training and gym work with the NZ Development Squad and hopes to make the NZ under 20’s World Cup squad for the World Cup tournament in France, August 2018. NZ qualified by winning the Oceanic Group in July 2017.
Nicole’s team, Eastern Suburbs, came second in the Auckland Women’s Championship. A highlight was being picked for the Auckland Women’s squad to play in the NZ Women’s National League. The Auckland team went on to win the NZ Women’s National Title (first title since 2009).
She started every game for Auckland except for the final which she missed after getting two yellow cards. She was able fly to Christchurch to celebrate the team’s success of a nail-biting 3-2 win over last years champions Canterbury.
