Giulia Dragoni, the 16-year-old midfielder who has been nicknamed “Little Messi,” is balancing playing in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup for Italy with her schooling commitments.

Dragoni, who plays for FC Barcelona, made her World Cup debut in Italy’s opening match against Argentina, starting in the midfield and helping the team to a 1-0 victory. She has since played in Italy’s matches against Sweden and South Africa.

Despite her busy schedule, Dragoni has been able to keep up with her schoolwork. She is currently taking online classes through the International Baccalaureate program.

“It’s not easy,” Dragoni said in an interview. “But I’m managing to do it. I’m really focused on both my football and my studies.”

Dragoni’s parents are supportive of her decision to pursue both her football and academic dreams.

“We’re very proud of her,” her father, Roberto, said. “She’s a very talented girl, and she’s working hard to achieve her goals.”

Dragoni’s success at such a young age has inspired other young girls to pursue their dreams of playing football.

“I’m really happy that I can inspire other girls,” Dragoni said. “I want to show them that anything is possible if you work hard.”

Dragoni is still young, but she has already accomplished a lot in her football career. She is the youngest player to ever represent Italy at the Women’s World Cup, and she is one of the most promising young players in the world.

It will be interesting to see what Dragoni accomplishes in the years to come. She has the potential to be one of the best female footballers of all time.
