Bosnia national women football team lost a world cup qualifier to Wales national team, in Zenica. The guests scored one goal in the match played at Bilino Polje stadium.
“United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has recognized efforts, commitments and energy young women from the Bosnia and Herzegovina National Women’s Football Team present in public and their contribution to other young women across the country,” said Doina Bologa, the UNFPA Representative in Bosnia, ahead of the Tuesday match.
In 2016, UNFPA started supporting gender equality in sport in order to challenge gender stereotypes in Bosnia, improve girls’ and women’s self-esteem and contribute to their general health.
“We believe that gender roles may not and should not prevent women and men from reaching their maximum potential, and there is no better example of braking gender barriers than what these young women do. We are proud to have been supporting them and we will certainly continue promoting women’s football in the years to come,” said Bologa.
Bosnia women team are now 3rd in Group 1 with three points from three games. Wales top the Group with 10 points from four games, followed by England with 9 points from three games.
