Afghanistan Women’s Football Team Captain Shines in Dutch Club

Representing and captaining the Afghanistan women’s national team is a challenging responsibility, however, Muhtaj had many ambitions to achieve with her country’s national team before the recent regime change in Afghanistan.

In the summer of 2021, Muhtaj was in constant contact with Afghanistan Football Federation about competing in the qualifying campaign for the Women’s World Cup for the first time. She and her team would pay maximum effort to make their dream come true.

However, things changed quite rapidly in Afghanistan with the Taliban’s return to power in August 2021.
