Current players Paul Pogba, Nadia Nadim, Megan Rapinoe, Moise Kean, Dejan Lovren, Olivier Giroud, Shanice van de Sanden, Tyrone Mings, Juan Mata, Guram Kashia and Kalidou Koulibaly all share their stories of exclusion and discrimination in football, as well as giving their own thoughts on the best way to help eradicate these issues from the sport.

Pernille Harder and Lucy Bronze, and Rapinoe, together with trailblazing referee Stéphanie Frappart, each explain how they have fought, and are still fighting sexism and discrimination to reach the pinnacle of women’s football.

Tottenham coach José Mourinho and Dutch legend Ruud Gullit also feature in a film, which takes viewers on a journey across Europe and North America, exploring the complexities of discrimination in the global game, whether based on ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation or refugee backgrounds.
