Hi good morning. I am sure in the past, not only soccer was difficult for women, also other sports. Today there are opportunities in sports for women, but in my country it's not easy to see this situation. For example Soccer players earn more money than women.

yes, girls in Colombia have the opportunity to play soccer. many years ago this sport was not supported. men have always been supported in this sport, but we have schools to train and learn, for us soccer is a passion. free it's fun, joy. I like soccer.

Colombian women's soccer is a great group but so far it is just becoming known and they have already made it to the World Cup, I can say that they play better than the men but they are not given enough recognition.

That's an interesting question, I remembered when I was on elementary school, I used to see many girls playing football but now, I'm not sure about it because I only know a girls who's a football player...but I think girls have a lot of opportunities to play football in Colombia.

I know some girls who played soccer when i was younger. But now, i haven't seen any girls playing soccer. I kinda think girls are more interested in basketball now, since so many girls play that in my school.

No, in my country, Ukraine, there aren't many girls playing football. To be honest, I've never seen girls playing football in my country.

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 :-)
