Women’s football in the North has changed drastically after players like Mukarama Abdulai, Jafar Rahama and Abdulai Salamatu Nte came to the limelight with their breathtaking and incessant performances for the National U-17, U-20 and the Black Queens Teams.

One other female footballer who has added colour to the game in the just ended Northern Regional Women Division One League is Abdul Razak Zanira. One of the best female soccer players from the North. The winger was loaned to Bagabaga Ladies FC from Premier League side Pearlpea Ladies FC two seasons ago.


Her consistent performances caught the eyes of several clubs including Northern Ladies FC, who immediately after the season ended did not hesitate to make peace with their arch rivals Pearlpea Ladies FC and brought her in to boost their squad depth.

Zanira is a young talented winger blessed with so much qualities.
She has this unpredictable quality in her game, making it very difficult for defenders to marked her out. She has so many options in her head when she come face to face with the defends. She gives defenders headache with plenty of thoughts in their heads and they are always found guessing whether she is going straight or cutting in, whether she is to shoot or thread the ball through, to cross or dribble into the box and in the end they are mostly caught making the wrong decisions.



Creativity and trickery with the ball is also something you can’t take away from Zanira and she love doing it at her very best. She is very quick with the ball, and has always used her tricks to dribble past her markers especially during one on one situations.


She found the back of the net 4 times and was an integral figure in the Bagabaga Ladies FC team as they finished second to now Premier League side FC Savannah Ladies in the Women DOL. She scored a sublime free kick against Nasara Ladies FC which was the goal that separated the two teams.


The pacy and energetic winger would be hoping to play in the national team colours one day as it is the dream of every player to play for his or her nation.


The world should watch out for this great talent as she steps onto the field with Northern Ladies FC in the upcoming Women’s Premier League.
