A Nepali Football player, and all time scorer, Sabitra Bhandari has been featured in the website of the Federation Internationale De Football Association (FIFA), the international governing body of Football.
The realization of the childhood ambitions of the 23 year old Nepali football player to play for Nepal, has been shared in the website FIFA.com.
FIFA.com has put words into her experience of her home village of Lamjung District where she played Football with the neighbouring boys. She played the ball made up of Socks, however, she didn't stopped dreaming big. She wanted to become a team mate of then Nepali Football stars, Anu Lama and Jamuna Gurung.
When she was young, she used to often hear on the radio that Lama or Gurung scored for the national team. Then on, Sabitra had a dream of playing as their team one day. She successfully made her dream come true and made her new goals of becoming the top scorer, also which she already fulfilled.
Last year, when she went on to win the Indian Women's League title, she was signed by India's Sethu Football Club.

She has said that she has learned a lot of playing in India. She added, it was a new experience for her to play in the matches for a month long period. She feels lucky enough to have been a part of the play in winning the league with two different clubs.
Bagging these two titles have not stopped her from dreaming more. She has set her goals of working hard and making Nepal the champion in South Asia. She is also thinking of pursuing her career in Europe if she gets oppurtunities.
She feels that Football has changed her life completely and given her a new identity. She feels proud to be known as a footballer for Nepal.
