For many years, Afghan women’s soccer was subject to both gender and cultural discrimination, but the sport is set to become a central part of the country’s agenda following the election of Ashraf Ghani as President last year.

During the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, the Afghan women’s national soccer team staged a rare and triumphant match against Saudi Arabia with more than 10,000 fans in attendance.

Director of Soccer at Brookings, Tony Cárdenas, joined Liz to discuss Afghanistan’s initial female soccer success and also discuss a new report that claims the sport plays a key role in shaping up the country’s future leaders.
