With the Women’s World Cup well underway, the women of Norway’s soccer team have participated in a very funny spoof documentary, poking fun at the stereotypes surrounding their sport. In the video, the women all take turns detailing their general lack of football prowess, explaining how it’s really difficult to remember not to pick up the ball and throw it instead of kicking it, for example. Goalkeeper Ingrid Hjelmseth admits that “goal-kicks are my worst nightmare,” and defender Trine Ronning concede that she still does not understand the off-side rule. Mid-fielder Cathrine Dekkerhus tackles one of the most obstinate stereotypes when she tells us how hard it is to have teammates falling in love with her at every club she joins: “Lesbians everywhere. It’s teeming with them,” she explains. You can watch the hilarious video above, and on Monday, the Norway squad will disprove the very stereotypes they were mocking as they face England in the second round of the 2015 World Cup.
