Spain's Women's Football Team Maintains Opposition to National Call-Up
On Monday, players from Spain's women's football team made it clear that their strong opposition to representing the national team still stands, even after most of the players who secured victory in the Women's World Cup last month were selected for upcoming matches.
In a collective statement, the players emphasized their commitment to making the "best decision" for their future and well-being. They revealed that they had carefully examined the potential legal consequences of not responding to the call-up.
This stance by the players stemmed from an incident that occurred after Spain's World Cup win when Jenni Hermoso, a player, received a kiss on the lips from Luis Rubiales, the head of the country's football federation. This gesture eventually led to Rubiales' resignation from his position.
