The top-flight football leagues are kicking off on this Friday in England, France and Germany. Spain's best league, La Liga, begins next week, and one of La Liga's high-profile transfers is Antonio Rudiger.
Rudiger has family ties to Sierra Leone and he plays at the international level for Germany. VOA's Gwen Outen will have a report on Real Madrid's 29-year-old defender.
Also on Friday's show, VOA's Sirwan Kajjo will have a report on 20-year-old refugee Afghan athlete Marzieh Hamidi, who plans to compete in taekwondo at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
