Girl Sidelined Over Headscarf

A 15 year old Muslim girl in Florida was prevented from playing in a soccer match because she was wearing a headscarf. A referee, despite being told otherwise, said she was violating league regulations and would not allow her to play. The United Soccer Association has now apologized.
"I never thought I'd have to deal with that kind of thing in soccer," said Khalil. She also stated, "I felt really bad because I felt like I sort of let the team down."
