Nepali goal machine Sabitra Bhandari aka Samba has signed for an Israeli club.

She will play for Hapoel Raanana Women’s FC in the Israeli Women’s League ‘Ligat Nashim’.

Bhandari, widely regarded as one of the top strikers in South Asia, has for a long time dreamed of playing in a European league.

Despite geographically belonging to the Asian continent, Israel is a registered member of the UEFA, the European football federation.

“I am excited to play. I have dreamed of this for a long time. I can express how happy I am,” she said.

When she makes her debut for Hapoel Raanana Women’s FC, she will become the first-ever Nepali footballer to play in Europe.
