A short clip of a 13-year-old girl scoring a stunning goal in a football game has gone viral after it was uploaded on Twitter over the weekend
The 13-year-old is so skilled that she was the only girl among the all-boys teams and scored a stunning goal during a free kick, according to Ahmad Azri, who is the head of the department for corporate social responsibility (CSR) under the Menteri Besar Selangor Incorporated (MBI Selangor).
“She has to join the men’s team because she’s too ‘power’. MBI Selangor’s CSR sponsored her to train with ?NK Osijek in Croatia after getting an offer there. Look at the free kick she scored,” Azri tweeted.
?NK Osijek, short for ?enski nogometni klub Osijek, is a Croatian women’s football team.
In the clip, Qaseh Rania Khairul Najib, wearing a white #9 jersey, is seen making the successful free kick look easy
At the time of this writing, the video has over 165,000 views, with the tweet receiving more than 3,000 retweets and quote tweets where proud Malaysians praised the teen’s impeccable timing.
This isn’t Rania’s first stint playing in an all-boys team
Born in Selangor, Rania is a midfielder.
She played with the Under-12 boys’ team in the 2020 Anfield Cup and also represented them at the 2020 TSS Cup and played for the boys’ Under-10 team in the Suparimau tournament.
She also won the Kuala Lumpur Women’s Football Championship 2021 when she represented the senior team and the LaLiga Youth Championship 2021 for the Under-14 category, reported New Straits Times.
A student of the Puchong Utama 2 primary school, Raina also received the awards for Most Valuable Player in the LaLiga Youth Championship 2021 and the Futsal Academy 2020 for the Grassroots category.
