‘Tired of being humiliated’ – Three Argentina players walk out on women’s squad due to series of ‘injustices’

Three players from the Argentina national women’s team have walked out on the squad, citing significant grievances over pay and working conditions.

WHAT HAPPENED?

Goalkeeper Laurina Oliveros, defender Julieta Cruz, and midfielder Lorena Benitez announced on their respective social media handles that they have pulled out of the Argentina squad ahead of two international friendlies scheduled against Costa Rica. The players expressed their frustrations over what they describe as ongoing “injustices”, lack of recognition, and “humiliating” treatment by the Argentine Football Association (AFA).

WHAT CRUZ SAID

“We reached a point in which we are tired of the injustices, of not being valued, not being heard and, even worse, being humiliated,” Cruz wrote on Instagram.

“We need improvements for Argentina’s women’s soccer national team, and I am not only talking about finances. I speak about training, having lunch, breakfast.”

Goalkeeper Oliveros added on the same platform: “With a broken heart and thousands of dreams disappearing little by little. May the next generations enjoy and be happy running after the football, as we were some time ago.”
