From Birmingham to Pakistan: Easah Suleiman Paving the Way for Pakistan’s Football Resurgence
Easah Suleiman, hailing from Birmingham, has announced his decision to play for the Pakistan football team, igniting hopes for a bright future in the sport.
Proudly embracing his Pakistani heritage, Suleiman aims to make a significant impact on the football scene for his ancestral homeland.
“My heritage, my grandparents are born in Pakistan, so I am obviously proud of that. I am proud of my origin, proud of my heritage. It was a case of ok yeah, let’s go, let’s go and try and help and let’s give my experience, and try and see what we can do.”
Having initially kickstarted his career with Aston Villa, he now showcases his skills in Portugal.
Notably, Suleiman stands out as an international player in Birmingham, a rarity in itself.
Cherishing every moment of his journey, he strives to make the most out of his opportunities on the field.
Presently, he is gearing up for a highly anticipated match against India—a fixture that carries significant importance for both nations.
However, it’s worth mentioning that in the previous week, India emerged victorious with a 4-0 win over Pakistan.
One exceptional achievement Suleiman holds dear to his heart is being the first Asian to captain an England football team, a personal milestone that will forever be part of his heritage.
Such an accomplishment cannot be taken away from him. Furthermore, Suleiman’s team is making a comeback to international football following the lifting of a FIFA ban last summer.
This development opens up new avenues and opportunities for Pakistan’s football journey.
