Here are some observations from Gerard Gleeson, lawyer, abode migration lawyers:


"It was a humbling experience to attend a training session with the Afghan Victory and to hand over the first of their team shirts we are sponsoring.


"Having been responsible for lodgement of dozens of protection applications for Hazara clients I have heard many horrific stories of kidnapping, torture, and death that would be utterly familiar to every one of the young people who were kicking footballs around me. I don't know how they can forget the horrors perpetrated on their families by the Taliban, but as Zak reminded me, this is what they do to forget, and to start again.


"I met several of the team including their founder and patron, Zak; their captain, Ali; and their best women player, Mariam, who also plays for South Melbourne FC.


"Their summer season starts in a few weeks so we will keep everyone informed as to their progress."
