So the World Cup is now in full swing and it has been great to see a bit of diversity within the pundit world.
We have see two great representations of black women on mainstream channels, The BBC and ITV, commentating on the tournament.
As former Professional footballers Eni Aluko (@Enialuko
) and Alex Scott MBE (@alexscott2
) unsurprisingly offer opinions equal to (or better than 😜) colleagues on their respective punditry teams.
Eni, former Chelsea striker had played over 100 games for England and her 17 year career spans over teams such as Birmingham City and Charlton Athletic. She is currently playing at Juventus. She is not only a professional footballer but also has a first-class degree in sports law. Eni is currently part of the ITV’s World Cup show.
Alex Scott who is a pundit on the BBC’s World Cup show has 140 caps for England women’s team,!commentates along side Gary Neville and Didier Drogba. Her career stated at Arsenal, winning 7 FA cups. She retained from the game last year following her 13 year career.
We at @thegoodnewsnews
are impressed to see such representation of our community in a football world that doesn’t employ many women let alone women of colour. Both ladies are doing a fantastic job and will hopefully pave the way for all women out there.
