Rescuing the Afghanistan girls' football team – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

It’s been more than two months since the national Afghanistan girls football team fled their country.

They faced abuse and violence after the Taliban banned women from taking part in sports.

BBC correspondent Caroline Hawley went to meet the girls to see how they were finding their new home, and hear about the life-changing mission that enabled them to escape.

All the Afghani men that allowed the Taliban to just walk into Kabul should be ashamed of themselves, all the Afghani men that stood on the runway with not a woman or child on site trying to get on planes should be ashamed of themselves, the Afghan Men and the Afghan army had the Taliban outnumbered and had better equipment and still they allowed them to walk in, all Afghan men should be ashamed of yourselves.

The taliban obviously had watched women’s football, and decided it should be banned ,as it is a affront to humanity

Respect the local costumes and culture and lose the veil and all the religious shoit you were accustomed to.

I love that line: "eventually there was a breakthrough, and… the group boarded a flight to Portugal"
There's a book to be written in what is left out of that.
The Portugese people should be proud.
