Think of Palestine and you probably don’t think about a place catering much to women’s sports.
Which is why seeing a group of girls come together to play soccer is truly an inspiration, both to their country and to people around the world!
The Palestinian national women’s football team has been around for more than a decade, made up of players who come together for their love of the game. Politics and religion play no part in whose on the pitch - these women are teammates regardless.
Like team captain Marian Albandak: a Christian who plays midfield and defender. She passes the ball to Nevin Alkolayb, a Muslim and the only woman on the squad who wears a hijab.
There is no question, these women have skills. So much in fact, they were courageous enough to take on the boys!
In the video above, the women's national team play a men’s team and the final score might surprise you!
Their bravery both on the field and in their everyday lives will make you look at overcoming challenges in a completely new light!
