Striker Sherifatu Sumaila lifted the Israeli Ligat Al Women with her side Maccabi Kiryat Gat which will see them play in next season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League. The 24-year-old took to her twitter handle to celebrate her success.
”If you are grateful more blessings will follow. 2020/2021 League Champions. Qualified for @UWCL. Really grateful for how far God has brought us this season. Things were a little harder for me cos of minor injuries. Played through the pain and here I am a “Champion.” Two more games to go.”
Last month, she and her mates made history with Maccabi Kiryat Gat as they won the first-ever Israeli Athena Cup title. Sherifatu joined the Israeli side last year in October and have been in fine form this season.

It feels good to be here and I am happy because I have made an impact and I am proud of myself as a player”
“Qualifying for the champions’ league means we have a lot of work ahead of us. This would be my first time playing in the champions’ league and I am looking forward to helping my team to achieve laurels” she concluded adding that this should inspire more female players to keep pushing for success.
