Irene hadn't thought that this would be a problem.  Surely there must be a soccer team that she can play on.  When her parents decided to move to Italy for the year, Irene had researched the country on the Internet.  She found references to girls' soccer teams so she is shocked to find out that she may have to sit out the season.  But, she is allowed to join the boys' team.  She is astounded by their reaction to her.  They really do not want her to play.  Join Irene as she experiences culture clashes both on and off the field.
