Nadia Nadim, the Denmark international who escaped the Taliban and become a true football trailblazer | The Independent

Like many of the women playing in the European Championships Nadia Nadim was introduced to football by her father, who brought home a ball when she was a little girl. The rest of her story, however, is unique, a tale of tragedy and triumph even Hollywood might balk at. Nadim will play for Denmark tonight in the quarter-finals of Euro 2017, against holders Germany in Rotterdam. It is the biggest match of her life, but there is no danger of her losing perspective.
