The Wider Image: Cameroonian girls defy prejudice to pursue soccer dreams
Emmanuel Eteme Biolo, a girls' U17 team coach, talks with his team during halftime of the match at the Rail Foot Academy field. The academy currently trains around 70 girls, most of whom come from poor backgrounds and would otherwise not be able to afford even their own soccer boots, said Biolo. "Here they have everything: coaches, jerseys, training equipment, a physiotherapist, and the guidance we give them all the time. Gaelle Enganamouit really wants these kids to be the next generation," he said.
