A female version of our legend Mohamed Salah is in the making. Dana Kareem, the Egyptian football player is about to take her first steps towards success.
Dana is a current football player at Wadi Degla, women team. She said she had always dreamed of playing on an international level after spending two weeks at English club Chelsea F.C.
Her passion towards football had started at a very young age, she said.
“I went to FCB Escola Soccer School when I was five years old and I was the only girl. When I was older I went to a private academy before joining Wadi Degla,” she told Nogoum FM.
“My dad took videos of me playing and started contacting clubs abroad, like Chelsea, and I got to join them on residency for two weeks. After I was done, they said they want to sign me and asked me to go back in April,” she said.
Her coach, Youssef Fawaz, revealed that she’s one of the best players on her team.
“Dana played with me for four years before moving to Wadi Degla, which is the best women’s football team in Egypt,” he said.
Dana said she is willing to leave her life behind and be completely dedicated and devoted to her future football.
“If Chelsea still want me by next April, I will sign a contract with them and move my life and education to England. Every girl can do what boys do as long as she goes after it,” she said.
