Arsenal and Chelsea stars feature in FIFA’s support video for ‘humanity’s heroes’

Three of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League’s stars have teamed up with world football’s governing body FIFA to star in a special video which pays tribute to ‘humanity’s heroes’ during the current Coronavirus pandemic.

Much of the world has been hit by the virus which has infected more than two million people worldwide with that figure increasing on a daily basis.

In a recently-launched FIFA campaign, football has come together to thank medical staff along with those working in law enforcement, pharmacies, shops, warehouses, delivery services, public transport, and safety and security for their efforts to protect society.

The campaign, named #WeWillWin, has been launched by FIFA with a video which sees football personalities supporting humanity’s heroes. The video features some of the biggest names in world football including David Beckham, Diego Maradona, Marco van Basten, Roberto Carlos, Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos and Zinedine Zidane.

Alongside those stellar names are some of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League’s very own special talents. Also featuring on FIFA’s video are Arsenal’s Dutch pair Danielle van de Donk and Vivianne Miedema and Magda Eriksson of Chelsea.

The video is not only a wonderful tribute to those who are risking their own lives to protect society during the Coronavirus pandemic, it also highlights the ever-increasing profile of the women’s game and the fact that the greatest names in world football are no longer male or female, they are simply ‘footballers’ who are recognised by FIFA for their achievements.
