Pakistan are keen for West Brom’s Mariam Mahmood to represent them at international level
West Brom Women have been contacted about Mariam Mahmood’s availability to play for Pakistan following the striker’s recent interview with Sky Sports News.
Speaking ahead of South Asian Heritage Month in her first interview with a major platform, British-Pakistani Mahmood opened up her love for West Brom, where she has come through the ranks and established herself as an important part of the first-team squad.
That caught the attention of scouts trying to rebuild Pakistani women’s football after the Pakistan Football Federation’s international suspension due to undue third-party interference was recently overturned by FIFA.

Sources close to Mahmood say the 18-year-old is “honoured” to be considered for international selection by Pakistan.
Pakistan, who have not played an international match since 2014, are putting together a team to play in the South Asian Football Federation Women’s Championship in Nepal, kicking off next month.
