Goalkeeper of the national women’s team 22-year-old Mahpara Shahid and 17-year-old midfielder Zulfia Nazeer were in action against Arsenal Women soccer club Dubai.
Both Pakistani players have recently been signed by Dubai based Rossoneri Football Club, whose head coach Aymen is from Jordan. While speaking to Geo.Tv, the club coach Aymen appreciated the skills and expertise of both the players.
“Actually, I am really surprised to see Mahpara and Zulfia in their first match in Dubai. I hope the team would benefit from both these Pakistani players as well as they will learn from International players from USA, UK, Syria, Lebanon and Morroco who are part of our Rossoneri Football Club.”
Mahpara Shahid and Zulfia Nazeer were also excited to play with the players of different nationalities.
