The captain of FC Barcelona, Alexia Putellas, launched her new foundation this Wednesday, 'Eleven', with which she will work to try to improve opportunities for girls in vulnerable situations through football. At an event held at the Casa Seat in Barcelona, the footballer was accompanied by Xavi Puig, director of Barça women, Elena Fort, vice president of Barça, and several well-known faces from Barça basketball such as Roger Grimau or Ricky Rubio.

Alexia aspires with 'Eleven' to reduce gender inequality in sport and provide more than 300 girls around the world the possibility of enjoying and learning about football. The foundation not only seeks to teach them about the sport, but also offer them a platform for developing leadership skills and confidence. "Football is more than a game; it is a way to inspire and motivate girls to be strong and confident. We want every girl to have the opportunity to develop, no matter their situation," says Alexia.

8-0 win, we basically stopped playing after 60 minutes.

This is really embarassing for RFEF. They couldn't send someone to award our players the medals?

After winning the Queen's Cup and lifting the trophy, the FC Barcelona staff were in charge of awarding the medals to their players

In other news, Spain beat England 4-0 in U17 Euro final to clinch their fifth WU17 Euro title and first since 2018 after they've lost last two finals.

Five Barca players started - Martina Gonzalez, Lorena Cubo, Ainoa Gomez, Clara Serrajordi and Celia Segura (she scored twice in second half to finish off England hopes) while Noa Ortega came off the bench in 2nd half.

Sevilla's Alba Cerrato was Player of the Tournament and top scorer with 7 goals. Might be worth to sign her. But anyway, we already have many very good youngsters upcoming.

Good for them. All players should have rejected to play for NT until things improve.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina — Three players quit Argentina’s women’s squad on Monday in a dispute over not being paid and conditions at a camp ahead of two friendlies.

Goalkeeper Laurina Oliveiros, defender Julieta Cruz and midfielder Lorena Benítez, all regular starters, walked out.

“We reached a point in which we are tired of the injustices, of not being valued, not being heard and, even worse, being humiliated,” Cruz posted on Instagram. “We need improvements for Argentina’s women’s soccer national team, and I am not only talking about finances. I speak about training, having lunch, breakfast.”

Cruz and Benítez said during national squad training sessions they received a ham and cheese sandwich and a banana, which they consider inadequate for high-performance athletes.

Well said, Frido.

Fridolina Rolfö and other Swedish internationals have reacted strongly to learning that three footballers (Laurina Oliveiros, Julieta Cruz and Lorena Beníte) have left the Argentine national team camp after considering that they had been disrespected by giving them a banana for lunch. and a sandwich. "It's tragic to hear that," says the Barça player.

The complaints from the Argentinian women go further, because they claim that they did not receive a salary and that, in addition, they have to pay the tickets for the games to their family. "These are not conditions for someone who wants to be successful and perform at the highest level. It's great that they have put their foot down and want a change. There are many cases in women's football where change is required and the beginning is that the players must speak," Rolfö told 'Sportbladet'.
