This video shows that women football is more practiced in England that in France. But since the Women's World cup, french disclosed that girls play as well as boys. And me, since the world cup, I prefer watch a women match than a boy.

Thank to this video we can see that football is not only for a boys and that girls are perfectly able to play this sport as well. No sport is reserved for boys. Everyone can do what they want.

At home, football is open to everyone.
As much girls as guys are accepted in football clubs.
There is a lot of women's teams.
This shows that football is not only for boys, but for girls too.

It's a good question.
Where I live football is very accessible to girls, there are many clubs that have women's football teams.
Which makes it easy to play football if you like it.

Yes they have a lot of opportunities now and the feminine football is more popular than before. There is still some people who says that football is not for girls but it's a minority and my country's national feminine football team is here to prove that these people are wrong. It also prooves that football in France is not only for boys but also for girls and women.
It's very good that now, we can say that feminine football in France is not as discriminated as it was before.

Hi empty,

 

Good question! Goosebumps are little raised dots that you get on your skin when you're cold, but you can also get them when you're scared or excited. They make the little hairs on our skin stand up!

 

Hope that helps! It's great to see all the comments from you :-)

While we are in a macho world as of now, I can say that my country allows women to practice different sports, different national teams have their women's teams and the different schools of soccer in which I practiced I been able to do it with women, in my opinion women have the right to practice and play football, since we have the same rights and if we look in Colombia have great Olympic medalists who are women.

i think the women that play soccer in my country have much oportiunities because they can participate in various team with different coach and sponsor. they can travel to much places around the world to championships because they practice since very little. they play soccer with women very good that teach to be better.

in my country the women's football is not popular because the possibilities are very few and the support is very bad this will be better if more institutions of this sport are obtained for women because many academies are only for men, another problem are the esteoreotypes that many discriminate and alienate women in this sport.

In Colombia, the girls have many opportunities play soccer in soccer schools, but in the moment that want to play in a professional team, the men do not let, because in Colombia exist a lot of sexism, also, she believe them "Weak sex".

Hi everybody

In my opinion, i think that is to difficult the women be professional, because in my culture football is a thing only for men. I really love football and i wish that women have the same opportunities because they can play very well, only need supports from us

in my country, so far women are opening the field because Colombia is a country where there is little possibility for women footballers but little by little they have been able to have possibilities to be professionals. More and more sponsors are supporting their talent and they are going to play the best teams in the world.

No, I think that in Colombia prefer teams where play boys, because they think that boys play better and this in false for me. Everyone are same and that just play mes is unfair.

I think that my country should let play more women, they can play as men do and also support more the women team.

I think that in Colombia there are almost no womens football opportunities, because big companies do not want to sponsors these womens teams. But someday will change this idea in my Country and we will be world champions in womens soccer.

The girls practiced football in my country but have less oportunities than men, because the men have many oportunities women who like football and practice it can become professionals but it is very difficult. The women who are professional players are the best players in the world. There are colombian women
