ALBUFEIRA, Portugal, Feb. 28 (Xinhua) -- China's women's football team head coach Bruno Bini expressed his hope to win every game with huge efforts at the pre-match conference of 2017 Algarve Cup here on Tuesday, one day before the tournament kicked off.

The Chinese team, known as the ""Steel Roses"", claimed the title twice in 1999 and 2002, while hitting the bottom as they recorded the worst-ever 12th, also bottom position at the tournament in their last attempt in 2015.

China did not feature one year later due to a schedule clash between Algarve Cup and the Asian qualifications for Rio Olympic Games.

The team has been in preparation for the tournament in southern France for three-week time after Chinese lunar new year, and arrived at the competition site in southern Portugal last Friday for their final-phase preparation.

China, who ranked 13th in FIFA world rankings, were regarded as underdogs in their 21st appearance, as they were scheduled to meet world No. 6 Australia, No. 8 Sweden and No. 12 the Netherlands, with their debut in the 2017 edition against the Netherlands slated on Wednesday.

""The other three teams in our group all have higher rankings than us. We have plenty of experience here, so we will spare no efforts in these games,"" said Bruno.

""Almost every coach says here that their team will try hard, but this is a competition between players rather than coaches. Overall, we hope to win every game,"" he added.

""We are expecting a high-quality competition. It's not easy for us to come here, so we should put more expectations on the game,"" commented Allen Stajcic, Australian head coach.

Reigning champions Canada will face hosts Portugal, Denmark and Russia in Group A. 2011 World Cup winner Japan are in Group B with Norway, Spain and Iceland.

According to the tournament's format, the two best group winners will compete for the champions, and the odd one will fight for the third place against the leading runner-ups. Other teams will adapt the same format, in which the remaining spots from fifth to 12th position will be determined through direct match-ups pitting teams against their closest counterparts based on round-robin group results.

The 24th edition of Algarve Cup will curtain down on March 8.

" Have you ever wondered where the term ?sales pitch? comes from? You have a dozen thrown at you every day Wholesale Manchester City Shirts , (a few hundred if you watch television.) and depending on how you run your business, you throw a couple of them yourself. But what comes after the pitch? Just like in baseball, you can?t just throw a few balls around and expect to win the game. Like any sport, this game requires patience Wholesale Manchester United Shirts , practice, a little coordination and some good old-fashioned teamwork. But believe it or not, your business could be as easy as a game of baseball. So grab your peanuts and crackerjacks and get ready for 4 simple steps that will assist you in winning your next big sale!

Step 1. Find the People

You?re on the pitchers mound. What?s your first step? Well you need someone to throw the ball to right? Whether it?s a small ad you put in the newspaper, a car flier Wholesale Paris Saint-Germain Shirts , vehicle wrap, or just plan meeting people face to face, you require players if you?re going to be in the game. Only think of this more as open try-outs. Not everyone you find is going to play well enough to be on your team (unless you are just playing for fun.) Assess their skills and choose those who will create a winning team.

Step 2. Tell the Story

Here is where the ?pitch? comes in. Only, unlike regular baseball Wholesale Real Madrid Shirts , don?t try to strike them out. (We want them to hit the ball.) The less you say initially the better, as you want to create curiosity. In general, they aren?t ready to run the bases yet, so resist verbally ?throwing up? on them. Most successful companies are system driven Wholesale Sevilla Shirts , so let the system do the selling for you later. If you throw a fast ball (giving them too much info too fast, ) you?ll talk them in and right back out faster then you can say the word ?STRIKE.

Step 3: Build for Events

You have now gotten them to first base. This is where your companies system comes into play. Whether it?s a conference call, a 3-way with your mentor, a company overview or web presentation Wholesale Tottenham Hotspur Shirts , keep them in the game by moving them from one event to the next until they have a full understanding of what the business and product entails. This is moving them through the bases on the field.

Step 4: Follow Up

This is the step that I see most people miss, but it is also the most important. Too many people expect a home run on every sale, and although you run across the low hanging fruit or the ?lay down? sales from time to time, naturally in this business there are going to be objections. Set a follow-up appointment immediately following the main event you?ve put them into (while the information is still fresh in their minds.) If you are dealing with a large ticket item Wholesale AC Milan Hoodies , start by saying something like ?Assuming money was not an issue for you, what questions can I answer for you?? This allows you to address any other concerns they have, as money is usually the first objection that comes up. When all of their other concerns have been addressed and you have asked them buying questions throughout the entire process, then ask them how they would like to get started. If the money is still an issue Wholesale Arsenal Hoodies , have a list of different ways people have found or borrowed the money to get their minds thinking outside the box a little. Live testimonials at this stage are crucial too. Get them on the phone with as many different people (especially people they have something in common with.) They will trust someone more who does not benefit financially from the sale.

If you have not collected a check at this stage, repeat the process. Keep them plugged into e.
