What’s the best part about playing in Cyprus?

The weather.

And what do you believe is the big challenge about playing in Cyprus?

Not enough people know about women’s football here and there isn’t enough exposure or attention given to the league and the different clubs. More money should be invested into the women’s game to create more interest for young girls and subsequently more competition for the league.

Any advice for the next generation of Cypriot players?

Keep working hard and stand up for your rights as football players.
