Palestinian women’s’ soccer? These players (Muslims and Christians) are “changing things around.” How they even have a team is amazing, under otherwise unbearable circumstances. These women have embraced freedom and are great ambassadors for it.
Opportunities for the entire national team to play together are extremely rare. The handful of team members from Ramallah and the Gaza Strip can’t come to practices in Bethlehem. They train locally, often with fewer resources and even less support than the girls in Bethlehem. The team can meet and play together only at overseas championships.
