It doesn't get any easier for Papua New Guinea at the FIFA Under 20 Women's World Cup in Port Moresby.
The hosts were thrashed 9-0 by South American champions Brazil in their first match on Sunday night and are back in action this evening against European champions Sweden.
The Swedes were beaten 2-0 in their first match against North Korea.
PNG coach Lisa Cole was hopeful her side would be better with a match under their belts.
"There was just a lot of nerves going into the first game and I think now they've been on the field, now they've seen the fans and so a lot of first things are done and over with for them," she said.
"Now they can relax and a lot unknowns are taken out of it, this next game, and we'll be able to just focus on improving ourselves."
Lisa Cole expects Sweden to play a direct style of football but said regardless of the result it's a great challenge for the hosts to host the World Cup and get to play against such quality opposition.
"They won the Euros this year, coming out of that group ahead of Spain, Germany and France, which are all great teams. They will be tough - their direct play and we'll come out with a little bit different game plan against them to get some early pressure and will again give our best effort," she said.
"It's a great challenge for this group to have played a team like Brazil and now to get the opportunity to play a different type of team in Sweden and then a completely different type of team in North Korea...we will do our best again and I hope that we will be able to come up with a goal in one of these matches for the country."
Papua New Guinea's final group match is against North Korea on Sunday at the National Football Stadium.
