Leeds United offer to take Afghan girls' squad amid Taliban escape attempt

Leeds United are hoping to offer sanctuary to the Afghan girls' football squad as part of a humanitarian effort aimed at helping the latter avoid persecution by the Taliban back home.

The Whites, alongside the charity Football for Peace and the global venture firm ROKiT, have written to Prime Minister Boris Johnson in an attempt to secure visas for their refugee effort.


The 32-player squad, complete with coaches and families, are currently in Pakistan on a short-term stay, but would face serious life restrictions in their home country should they return.
