Born on 12th of March in the year 1996 in Quetta, Pakistan Shahlyla Ahmadzai Baloch was a professional footballer from the country of Pakistan who made many heads turn with her amazing talent. She was a forward for Pakistan’s national women’s team as well as for Balochistan team and caught the attention of many.

It was awesome to note that Shahlyla Baloch was the first ever woman from Pakistan to score hat-trick abroad during her times with Maldives. It was in the year 2014 this Shahlyla Baloch took part in the SAFF Women Championships and against Bhutan she performed superbly and made her country to win and grabbed many eyeballs.

It is very sad to note that she passed away in a car crash on 13th October 2016 in Karachi, Pakistan at age of just 20. It was good to hear that she broke many cultural barriers while living. She also inspired many girls to take up this football as their career. It must be noted that her sisters Raheela and Sohaila were footballers at the beginning but went on to differently later in their lives.

This Shahlyla Baloch was always regarded as supremely talented amoungst her sisters. It was great that she was even called as mini Maradona by her coach Tariq Lufti. In the year 2005 she was cynosure of many eyes at the inaugural women’s football championships as she was the youngest of the lot. Rest in peace Shahlyla Baloch!!
