Two strong feet key for this football star

THE importance of being strong on both feet will be one of the hints from Australian under-17 player Talitha Doro at her first guest appearance tomorrow since making it to the national team.

The Warwick District Football Association has invited Doro to the Warwick Wolves football and sports camp at 1.30pm tomorrow.

Doro's first memories of football are watching her brother Bryce play at Queens Park.

"I remember kicking a ball against the wall of the old shed at Queens Park when I was too young to play," Doro said.

She played in fixtures at Queens Park from the under-6 to U12 age groups before moving to regional teams.

Late last year, she played in FIFA U17 World Cup qualifiers in Philippines and is hoping to be selected in the team for the final group of qualifiers in China in September. If Australia qualifiers, the World Cup starts on March 15, 2014, in Costa Rica.

Doro admits, like most footballers, she has a strong side.

"I am stronger with my left foot but some coaches like that," Doro said.

"I mainly play on the left but am working hard at training on improving my footwork with the right."

The children will play on the Brisbane Roar inflatable pitch between 10am and 2pm tomorrow as part of the camp.

There are 24 participants at the camp with more welcome today and tomorrow at the grounds from 9am.
