Nouhaila Benzina Makes History At FIFA Women’s World Cup By Wearing Hijab (Photos)

Moroccan defender Nouhaila Benzina has etched her name in football history by becoming the first player to wear a hijab at the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The 25-year-old made her historic appearance in her team’s 1-0 victory over South Korea during the ongoing tournament in Australia and New Zealand on Sunday.

Benzina, who plays club football in Morocco, had been an unused substitute in her country’s opening game against Germany, which ended in a 6-0 defeat.

The momentous occasion holds significant meaning for many, as it represents a step towards greater inclusivity and recognition of diverse cultural and religious backgrounds in the sport. FIFA’s authorization of headcovers for religious reasons in 2014 paved the way for players like Benzina to express their religious identity while participating in top-tier international competitions.
