“I started playing football when I was young, I played among guys till I grew up, my passion for football was exceptional, it’s like my daily bread

“My dad doesn’t like his female child playing ball because of the way we dress on the pitch so he stopped me from playing ball for good nine years.

“I got encouraged by a friend just like a brother to me not to give up when he saw me training after nine years, he was the first person to buy me a boot, his nickname is ‘Ginger’ since then I started training without my dad’s knowledge.

“He caught me one day and he nearly beat me to death, that was when my grandma stopped my dad from discouraging me to play football

“Since then, my dad gave me a condition of playing with my Hijab as a Muslim child, he’s my father, I have to respect him. Initially, I wasn’t comfortable but as time goes on I got used to it

“Because of my Hijab, I find it difficult to get a club here in Nigeria, no club wants to accept me because of my Hijab, I don’t have much experience playing with females because no team wants to sign me with Hijab so I keep training with guys up till today.

Zulfah dream is to represent the super falcons of Nigeria in the future.
