cable. The players of the Afghan national football team scored one of their most important victories on Tuesday – they were able to leave their homeland.
On a humanitarian flight from the capital, Kabul, more than 75 people were attached to the Afghan women’s soccer team.
For more than a week now, representatives of the country at all levels have been asking for help to leave Afghanistan, as the political situation has been very tense in recent days.
They no longer feel safe at home after the return of political power to the Taliban after many years.
“These young women, female athletes and activists at the same time were at risk in Afghanistan. We thank everyone involved in their relocation from the country,” a statement from the FIFPro Players Association said. People from Afghanistan keep going.
“The past few days have been very stressful for us. But now we have achieved a very important victory,” said Khaleda Bubalova, a former Afghan football captain.
She is currently a member of the FIFPro working group and is coordinating the preparation for the transport of footballers and their families from Afghanistan to safety.
“The footballers were brave and strong in the time of crisis. I believe that a better life awaits them outside Afghanistan,” Bubalova added.
FIFPro Secretary General Jonas Baer-Hoffmann described the evacuation process as very complex.
Our hearts are with those imprisoned on earth against their will.
