It’s curious and funny.” He remembers it amidst laughs. mariona caldente (Fellanitux, Majorca, 1996) from Englandwhere today women’s soccer team premier in European Championship as an applicant. They will do so against Finland (18:00, TVE), without beautiful jennythe country’s greatest scorer, and without alexia putelas, the final Ballon d’Or, was seriously injured 24 hours before the start of the competition. Without him, a great deal of offensive responsibility rests in the hands of Caldenti, who is also a teammate. barcelonaJoe talks to EL MUNDO about all this.

The media wall was brought down at the 2019 World Cup in France. Is it game time?
The World Cup before and after was how Spanish women’s football was experienced, broadcast and felt. Now in England it is even bigger. In these three years, Barca have won the Champions League, we have set a stadium attendance record… It’s all interesting.
Is there any pressure?
Well, we haven’t really achieved anything great with the national team. We are a strong Barca group and with Spain we have been good at qualifying for Euros and the World Cup, we have competed against anyone. It’s normal for people to get excited and you need to know how to live with it. We are the first who want to do it as best as possible.
Favorite or Contender?
I think there are 6 or 7 teams that are contenders because they get more work done. It’s hard to talk about favorites. There is a euro six game, the level is even and at least you go out. We have come a long way since the World Cup and although we have suffered a lot, it is time for Spain to do something big.
Talking about casualties. The few hours in the concentration camp after the injury to Alexia Putelas must have been very tough.
Yep, we’re not going to make a fool of ourselves. Everyone knows how important Alexia is to this team. And Jenny too. Alexia was an important pillar, she is our reference, one of the captains, and she is a sensitive drop. But this is football and these things happen, the rest of us have to take responsibility, take a step forward and try to make up for that loss. We have one more reason to do good work.
Does its absence make you small or triple?
This is a great host. We had to go through that conflict, accept it and we’re going to try to make us stronger. Whatever good happens to us will be dedicated to the three captains, Alexia, Jenny and Virginia Torresilla, who will not be with us.
Are you, who plays for Barcelona, ​​part of that responsibility?
I think players like Etana, Petri (Guizarro) or me at the offensive level, or Irene (Paredes) and Mapi (Leon) in defense, we have to take those stripes and take a step forward. And I am happy with that responsibility.
Has coach Jorge Wilda spoken to you about this?
There is no direct message but we know our role and those of us who stay safe and sound will do our best.
One failure and one roof.
It’s hard… Not getting past the group stage would be a failure, we ourselves would feel that way. And in the other direction… I don’t put any limits on this team and hope the road will be long.
How did football come into your life?
I started playing for the school team when I was 5 or 6 years old. My older brothers used to play, my cousins ​​too, my father trained… Everything was football, soccer, football in my house… so when I got the opportunity, I signed up.
Now it is his turn to become the top scorer.
Well, here we go (laughs).
