"I will maintain"

Tribute to the Dutch national women’s team, the Lionesses, for making history yesterday with their first EURO cup. I am normally not all that invested in football (or soccer, if you prefer), but this was an event I didn’t want to miss. Women's football is disproportionately underappreciated in the Netherlands compared to men's football, and this victory is an important step towards their public recognition. I’m stoked for the team, but also for all of the young women and especially little girls in the Netherlands who aspire to become professional football players, for whom this victory will no doubt be an example and an inspiration. Well done ladies!

Wow!
I'm personally not really into football either, but it's definitely true that sports for women should get more recognition in the Netherlands. It's a shame that so many people think only men are able to do (harsh) sports. Even though I'm incredibly late on this post, I am still happy about the Lionesses' victory!

I feel like I've been rolled in chocolate and shot in the head. Gorgeous, gorgeous woman with a winner's spirit and passion with a clear goal in life, but she's a completely different species from me... :( Why'd she have to be a footballer?! Waaaah! 

Don't take the joke seriously, I'm not a soccer nazi. ^^;

Astounding artwork to celebrate the victory. c: The fur, folds in the clothing and the pose are all so well executed!
And I agree with what you said. Let's hope that women's football will be taken more seriously from now on. ^^

Very interesting how the lioness' fur is grey and everything else is in color, the contrast works well. And the detail is incredible, especially in her face and the arm veins, nice work!
