  1. Its tremendous to see our muslim players shining in the world of football. Xpecially in my club chelsea fc, @Demba Ba,@ Muhammad Salah@Kalou@Anelka.

  2. I feel happy ever to see muslims when they performs good in various fields i.e sports. I have a little confusion after reading above information espacially about Robin Van Persie if it was correct i felt much happy but unfortunately it is not so. Robin van Persie is outwardly, explicitly non-religious, possibly an agnostic or atheist.

  3. I play football.And I am a very good player
    And in future inshallah I would be football and will play my best .MAY GOD fullfill my DUA.Ameen
