Cup” on Nov. 13, where she released a statement of principles. made its mark.

The situation is not much different for Lola del Carril.

– It was for Lerena “It’s the usual pleasure of talking about football, being able to provide statistical, regulatory, or data about the environment in which it’s happening. Say, it’s the first World Cup I’ve commented on, and it makes me think a lot about that weird-looking girl who overcame so many challenges for female footballers. Girls who dream of being commentators and see us today, I love contributing to that grain of sand”.

-How much did it cost for each of them to come to this day?

“It took time for me to get to where I am now. It’s a very rapid change now, but in terms of my 27 years of professional life, everything took time. First they had me make football notes, then they let me play the field. playing the game, then jumping into a cabinet, everything took a long time but in the meantime I was fed, I was trained and my love for this sport and this job was food. What I have sown for so long today will give me this fruit that I never dreamed of.says Angela from Doha.

“My path was much easier. But what I’ve always said is that they eliminated the possibility of dreaming about journalism. You turned on the TV and they were all guys you would imagine could get in there. Then I met the Argentinean.” Reporters who put me in front of an opportunity looking for me and discovered that I could tell about football. I have always loved football, but I was far from dreaming. Let me thank all the women who made their voices and bodies this way. that I can live it today”, and in that gratitude, Lola’s words and emotions crowd.

How do you see the future of women in football broadcasts?

I want it to be more natural, not to have a place at the table or at the table. It’s a publication where we share the decision places and break down the famous ceiling they imposed on us. Women and football have been relatives for a while, but hopefully they will become better friends.” Lola says

“We women were either away from football or we were invisible. It was the man who would understand whether it was an offside, a penalty or a game. We hope that the place of the companion is left to the woman, without her. The passerby of the TV is disturbed. This cultural image is changing and creating resistance, but it cannot be stopped. What If more women join, our quality will grow and it will be better for everyone. Pure profit incoming, take You are traveling for a football game.
