More and more women and girls play football in France

More and more women and girls play football in France
 
The senior section of the Paris University Club women's football team Céline Costerg

The 24 teams that will compete in the 2016 European football championships in France in June are all men's teams. Football in France has long been a man's game: women were only officially recognised as players in 1975. But over the last decade there has been a push to get more girls and women involved in the sport. RFI spends time with a team in Paris and looks at the state of women's football in France today.
