STRIKE Football’s very own Jenni and Angela were featured in SBS’s FIFA Woman’s World Cup promotional advertisement which aired on 3rd June at 7:10PM.
Moon Xu grew up in China and migrated to Australia as an adult. She now has three children, one of whom, Jenni, plays football in our STRIKE program who featured in the article.
‘She’s one of two girls among a sea of boys taking part in the weekend clinic. “Growing up in China, if I wanted to play soccer I would find it hard,” says Moon. “I was interested in sport but I chose to play basketball when I was in high school. Girls don’t really choose soccer.”’
‘Michael Lee started bringing his daughter Angela to the football clinics in Hurstville about six months ago. Such is Angela’s love of the round ball game, she even convinced her older brother to swap basketball for football! “For my daughter, it’s just what she likes. I just want her to be active and she really likes soccer.” he says.’
