“I’m kind of worried about the cold, but I’m really glad for the opportunity”, said Palmer on Wednesday, while waiting to board her flight at the E.T. Joshua Airport.

“I will be waving my Vincy flag on Sunday”, she said, smiling.

She said that apart from the soccer game she would be using the opportunity to do some sightseeing.
