Storyline

The three various approaches to story are told from the perspective of today's reality - The Winning Call (Vinnarskallar) - from yesterday's reality - Women Against The Tide (Kärringar mot strömmen) - as well as through a somewhat chronological study and insight to the important dates and decisive situations occurring throughout the history showing the developments of the sport - in Play Seriously (Leken Som Blev Allvar.) Written by ML.

What a fight!
31 July 2013 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

I never thought I would spend one second watching women's soccer in my life but after watching this TV-series I ended up watching the whole Euro Championship in Sweden during the summer 2013. I got completely involved in the women that have fought for their rights to play the game. And considering that things have changed but not as much as one would expect it was certainly easy to find sympathy for the coaches and players even in 2013. From now on the series Den andra sporten has opened a window for me that I doubt will ever be closed, I am going to follow up on the series as well as on the present Swedish national team for women. A really great documentary effort by Swedish Television that I hope many get a chance to see even outside of Sweden.
