Vargas said that they are waiting on the FIFA to send the official regulations of tournament plane which will take place next in Canada.

“FIFA awards only for the men’s World games … there might be a prize for the winning women’s team, but nothing to the players, other than, food, lodging and transportation,” said Vargas.

Meanwhile in Fedefútbol say they are “very happy” about the women’s national team, as are the result of years of work, where the girls have gone through processes of minor league and will now have their day, a larger tournament.
