Lockdown was a time of reflection for many but Manchester City’s Caroline Weir put that period to better use than most

封锁是许多人的反思期,但曼城的卡罗琳·威尔(Caroline Weir)认为这一时期比大多数人更好

The Scotland international thought about her own journey to the top of the professional game

苏格兰国际选手对自己迈向职业比赛巅峰之路的思考

A journey that brought a place in the PFA team of the year for last season and FA Cup success at Wembley earlier this month

这次旅行为上赛季的PFA球队赢得了一席之地,并在本月初在温布利获得足总杯冠军

Weir recalled her childhood matches with Elgin Star and the early days at Hibs back when a career in professional football still seemed unattainable

韦尔回忆起她与埃尔金·斯塔尔(Elgin Star)的童年比赛,以及在希布斯(Hibs)的早期时代,那时职业足球生涯似乎仍然遥不可及

It inspired her decision to give something back by joining Common Goal as well as becoming a global ambassador for Girls United, a charitable organisation providing girls with equal access to sport

这激发了她决定加入共同目标并成为全球女孩慈善组织大使的决心,该组织旨在为女孩提供平等的运动机会

"It was a good time to take a moment and realise what was important," Weir tells

威尔说:“现在是花点时间认识重要的好时机。”

"Working with Girls United matched up with what I am passionate about which is girls being included in football

Gender equality in sport is kind of my thing." This has been a difficult time for advocates of equality when it comes to women"s football

运动中的性别平等是我的事。”对于女足运动倡导平等,这一直是一个艰难的时期

If the unhelpful comments of the outgoing FA chairman hinted at an ongoing disparity in the sport, the decision to deem girls" academies non-elite and shut them down during lockdown, while the boys were allowed to continue, appeared to confirm it

如果即将离任的足协主席的无用言论暗示了这项运动中的持续差距,那么决定将非精英女子学院视为精英学校并在禁赛期间关闭她们的决定,而男孩则被允许继续下去,这似乎证实了这一点。

"I think the perception was that women"s football was closer to being equal and going in the right direction, which it was," says Weir

韦尔说:“我认为人们的感觉是,女足更接近于平等,并且朝着正确的方向发展。”

"But I think we saw with the pandemic that men"s football was further in front and, unfortunately, women"s football took a bit of a back seat

“但我认为,我们在大流行中看到男子足球排在前列,不幸的是,女子足球排在后面

"It is difficult because there are obviously reasons behind it but it does just highlight that the women"s game still has a long way to go not just at professional level but at academy level

“这很困难,因为背后有明显的原因,但这只是说明女子比赛不仅在职业水平上而且在大学水平上还有很长的路要走

"The game has grown maybe quicker than people thought, especially in the last few years安徽城联网

“游戏的发展可能比人们想象的要快,尤其是在最近几年安徽城联网

The decision-makers just need to catch up with it and make sure they do the right things." When Weir discusses the women"s football boom, she cites the 2019 World Cup but is too modest to reference her own part in it

决策者只需要赶上它,并确保他们做正确的事即可。”当韦尔讨论女子足球的繁荣时,她引用了2019年世界杯足球赛,但太谦虚了,无法提及自己的角色。

It was her 25-yard goal that decided the first-ever Manchester derby that same year in front of a crowd of over 30,000 at the Etihad Stadium

正是她的25码目标决定了当年在阿提哈德球场(Atihad Stadium)超过3万名观众面前的曼彻斯特首度德比大战。

"People are still asking me about it so I think I have lived off it for long enough," she laughs

她笑着说:“人们仍然在问我,所以我认为我已经住了很长时间了。”

There are definite improvements to be made

It was starting to change but it was a slow process
