You Think Playing Like a Girl is Easy?

What it takes to play football like a girl.

There’s money in women’s football, but not much of it, so you might need an extra job.

You have to be your own biggest fan because media coverage is minimal. And you’d have to listen to suggestions like wearing tighter shorts to attract a bigger audience.

You’ll be playing on artificial turf, suffering burns and bruises. The goals you score, even if they by far outnumber those of male strikers, will receive next to no recognition.

Women’s football is a game of resilience, perseverance and self-assurance. And that is what makes it a beautiful game.
