Player Spotlight – Shila Rasoul

By Fusion FC

Congratulations on almost completing your first year with Fusion FC.

How has the transition from Richmond Girls Soccer to Fusion FC been?
It has been quite different actually. The game moves a lot quicker than the metro league but I think I am used to it by now. But I’m really enjoying it.

How did it feel to be asked to join Fusion FC?
Well it was a shock when I got asked to play my first game I was really nervous and I was literally shaking but once I got on the field , I just played my game. When I was officially asked to be on the team I was really happy and excited because I wanted to be there and I wanted to compete at this level of play and it’s a pleasure to play with these group of girls today.

What are some of your Fusion highlights so far?
Some fusion highlights are playing in away tournaments and scoring winning goals. Also shooting practice because that is going to let me have more shots in a game against a really good team and it will allow me to make the runs that I need and finish it by scoring or assisting a goal.

Who is your favourite soccer player and team?
My favourite soccer players are Alex Morgan, jordyn huitema and luka modric because they are so good and they create many opportunities to score and that’s what I look at and try in my own games. My favourite team would have to be Croatia just because there plays are so good and they are really aggressive and want to win.
