The Women’s Euros 2022 finally kicks off tonight after a 12-month delay so you’d better brace yourself for the ‘girls can’t play football’ brigade coming out of the woodwork.
You know the type, the 20-stone Terrys from the pub who rants on about the standard of goalkeeping and former leaders of global football’s comments about the size of the players’ shorts.
NEW TO PADDY POWER NEWS?
It’s everywhere, but nothing says more about the male hubris than the belief that they’d have any chance of even getting near any of the players on display at Euro 2022.
To emphasis the gap Paddy’s recruited freestyler and SoccerAid star Harriet Pavlou to run rings around some of the lads from the office for your enjoyment.
For the next few weeks some of the greatest players in the world will compete at the Women’s Euros.
Maybe best to avoid the idiots who insist women can’t play football…#WEuros22

“Women playing football, it’s embarrassing ok?” comes the typical response but there’s only one person getting embarrassed here.
Harriet shows off her stepovers, flicks, Rabonas, finishing and skills in a pick up game to leave our naysayer gasping for air as she taunts, “Keep up, Ron Weasley!”
