The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

THEY may have one eye over their shoul­ders but Liver­pool are tak­ing time out from rel­e­ga­tion wor­ries, launch­ing their own so­cial media con­ver­sa­tion this week.

The #ThisGirl­sGoal cam­paign is aim­ing at “iden­ti­fy­ing ex­ist­ing neg­a­tive stereo­types and smash them, re­plac­ing them with em­pow­er­ing and in­spi­ra­tional mes­sages in­stead”.

Asisat Oshoala, the first African in the WSL who won the BBC’s inau­gu­ral Women’s Foot­baller of the year award, Fara Wil­liams, Natasha Dowie and Gemma Bon­ner are all in the video.

But be­hind the video, comes the hash­tag, from Zainab in Abuja, who tweets: “I dance be­cause I am free, I am ed­u­cated and I can suc­ceed in fu­ture”.
