Gwendolyn Oxenham con Under the Lights and in the Dark: Untold Stories of Women's Soccer

In 2004 soccer author, journalist and award-winning documentary maker Gwendolyn Oxenham played futebol feminino for Santos FC, Brazil s most celebrated club. The team hitchhiked to practice, shared their field with a horse and wore hand-me-downs from the men s team. If this was Brazil, the mecca of futebol, what did the women s game look like in other countries?
Under the Lights and in the Dark takes us inside the world of women s soccer, following players across the globe, from Portland Thorns star Allie Long, who trains in an underground men s league in New York City; to English national Fara Williams, who kept her homelessness a secret from teammates on the English youth national team.
Oxenham takes us to the depths of Siberia, where players battle more than just snowy pitches in pursuing their dream of playing pro, and to a refugee camp in Denmark, where Nadia Nadim, now a Danish international star, practised after her family fled from the Taliban.
Whether you re a newcomer to the sport or a die-hard fan, this is an inspiring book about stars beginnings and adventures, struggles and hardship, and, above all, the time-honored romance of the game."
