imagine this: a world Cup without Lionel Messi. Or Cristiano Ronaldo. There's something missing. Even if the two were not at the world Cup in Russia is really far. Nevertheless, an unthinkable scenario.
In the case of women, however, fact. As Ada Hegerberg is missing, the best Footballer on the planet. Even if your country is Norway for the tournament, the 7. June starts on 7. July ends, has qualified. The Scandinavians meet on hosts France, South Korea and Nigeria. Hegerberg is not in the squad, which was announced on Thursday.
That Hegerberg, the striker, scored this season for Lyon in 27 Games, 23 goals scored and 12 more prepared, is missing, has no sporting reasons. Your goals finally, no coach would give up voluntarily. Already in 2017, the current World footballer retired from the Norwegian national team. It is a in their eyes, lost the struggle for recognition that motivated you to take this step.
dispute with the Association,
After Norway, namely at the European championship in 2017, retired, was Hegerberg disappointed. The fact that she was not to come up with your Team. Above all, however, that women's football was in your country a little respect. " soccer is the most popular Sport in Norway, and have been for years," she said at the time, in the "Guardian". "But at the same time girls do not have the same opportunities as the boys."
The 23-Year-old defendant, but also on the level of the national team. "I felt that I was a worse player," she said, what not ladies got in their team very well. Also, the Association raised three months after the poor results in the championship, the premiums of women to the same level of the men's national team, nothing changed: The Band was cut.
It was expected, therefore, that Hegerberg would be missing at the world Cup in France. With the line-up, Norway has now the bitter certainty that the best Footballer in the world is one of their own, but they will represent the country at the world Cup. The coach of the Norwegians, a Swede, Martin Sjögren, says to his squad: "We have tried to solve it, but she has decided not to play."
