The goal on the Blacks Ferns side was not a coincidence, it was a premonition that connected from the Youth Olympic Games in 2018, a tournament in which the national forward scored against the Oceania country and she said to La 10co that it will be one of the purposes in South Africa: 'It was a try from a penalty. Hopefully, it will also be fulfilled in this World Cup'.
