Mirza KhurramShahzad

Saher Zaman’s Gilgit background and the fact that she’s the only girl amongst six brothers has made her family very sensitive about her going away from home for any extended period of time — and that too for playing football.

Her interest in football, which she started playing back in 2007 when she was only nine, became harder to keep undiminished with every passing day. “It was okay for my family as long as I was playing as a child. But as I grew up, they started resisting,” says Zaman, mid-fielder for the Young Rising Stars (YRS) girls’ football club and one of the country’s best female football players. She has just played in the opening match of the inter-clubs girls’ championship at the Pakistan Sports Complex in Islamabad.
