Indeed, Louisa Necib is quite brilliant on the pitch. 

Footy love, nikhak


She is from Marseilles and is of Algerian descent.

They call her “the Female Zidane”.

She played for the top Women’s Club Team on the planet. Olympique Lyonnais of the Division 1 Féminine

She was shortlisted for a Puska Award this year and is undoubtedly incredible. 

Madames et Monsieurs….Louisa Necib.

Women’s football: Etihad Stadium summit examines attitudes

There are some who still cling to the outdated belief that football is a man’s world, run by men and played by men for the enjoyment of other men.

So proud of my team - Played 8v11 for 80 min & only lost by one goal (2-1).

Footy love, nikhak

[If you follow me via other forms of social media then you may have already seen a similar post to this one that I’ve shared with friends, but I thought it was worth sharing again, here, with TFQ followers too.]

IWSL shared this photo via Facebook today and it made me really happy - women of all ages playing the game in the Chicagoland area.

How old will you be when you retire your boots?

We’re listening, Karachi United. We’re listening. Keep playing. Keep doing what you love.


"World At Their Feet" Absolutely gorgeous film on football in Karachi, Pakistan for less-privileged youth by the Karachi United Football Foundation.

Amid the civil unrest, danger, firing, bomb blasts and instability of one of the most dangerous cities in the world, there is a center for youth. 

The work they do is incredible.

Gives young people hope, training, support and opportunity. All through football.

Wonderful initiative.

Beautiful piece.

Footy love, nikhak
