"It's good for players to take a step back and look at the whole game" - Áine O'Gorman
The Aviva Soccer Sisters virtual skills hub has been launched and who better to front it than Áine O'Gorman?
A distinguished players for the last 15 years for Ireland, a razor sharp and fascinating pundit, O'Gorman knows what it takes to get to the top and she knows how to get that message across too.
Under the tagline #SafeToDream, the Peamount United star is best-placed to tell young women that they shouldn't let anyone tell them they can't. As 20x20 enters it's #ThinkItAskIt phase, O'Gorman is a shining light - playing football at the top, for a second time, and analysing games on TV at the top with distinction.
We spoke to her about she's found the punditry job because, often, recently-retired players - never mind current international players - find the adaptation tough.
Like anything, she's enjoying learning how to become better.
After 100 caps, she retired from Ireland duty. In March, she came back stronger than ever.
An inspirational player who has also proven to be a sharp analyst. If anyone can show the @AvivaIreland Soccer Sisters that it's #SafeToDream, it's @AineOGor9 👏https://t.co/z86aY1nwlE pic.twitter.com/NINSJHWDAJ
