The perception of women’s football is often derided, with numerous mean tweets and blatantly sexist comments online. Released in line with International Women’s Day, the latest #TheCallUp video from Three focuses on dispelling the myths around women’s football.

Featuring Bordeaux’s Niamh Fahey, Sophie Perry (Brighton Hove & Albion), Amber Barrett (Peamount Utd) and Claire O’Riordan (Wexford Youths) the Irish Senior Women’s National team players review and contest some of the ridiculous mean tweets on women’s football such as “Watching Women’s football and even my fish has gone to sleep”.
 
Taking time out from preparing for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Slovakia and a top of the table clash with the Netherlands, the internationals can be seen together taking the comments in good humour and dismissing the negative sentiments surrounding women’s football. The video also showcases the top class skills and effort from the team- questioning if those behind the tweets had ever seen the ‘Girls in Green’ in action!
 
While the teammates take in the mean tweets, striker Amber Barrett asks “Can you respond to brute ignorance?”, O’Gorman confidently responds “Yeah you can, we’ll just go out and prove them wrong!”
 
Three is encouraging Irish fans to answer #TheCallUp and get down to Tallaght to support the ‘Girls in Green’ in their crucial upcoming World Cup qualifying games against Slovakia (April 6th) and Netherlands (April 10th).
