Thomalina Adams is currently one of the best football players in Namibia. She encourages girls to take up the sport, because for many it provides a foothold. Namibia’s Number Nine offers unfiltered access to the passion with which women devote themselves to soccer despite social constraints and offers insights into Namibian culture.
