Women’s football starts to be fashionable. In our country stadiums begin to fill and teams are more and more competitive in Europe. And, although progress is being made, we are still a long way from the female elite teams.
This summer the women’s world cup is celebrated in France and to celebrate it, the German women’s football team has made a tremendous ad to denounce the discrimination that soccer players still have today. We still like it more than that fantastic ‘Unstoppable For Iceland’ that left us all with our mouths open.
The Germans are a real football power: They have won the European Championship eight times and have been in the elite since 1989.
