A woman’s game: Nadia Nadim

‘Give me a ball and I forget about most of the stuff going on around me.’

This is the second episode in the three-part series “A Woman’s Game”. Each episode features women from different parts of the world who dedicated their lives to football, a sport dominated by men.
