Tenacious Trailblazer: Zohib Islam Amiri
How does it feel to be a part of the Indian football fraternity?
It feels absolutely amazing. India feels home to me now. Time flies and I had never thought that I would be here for so long. I am proud to say I am a part of the Indian football family now.
What was the reason behind entering football?
As a kid in Afghan, the only sport we could play was football, during the war as well. There was no other sport we were exposed to. My two elder brothers were playing football professionally and my family supported us for the same. Growing up while watching my siblings play increased my passion for football and at the age of 15, I joined as the youngest member of the Afghan National Team.
