A World Cup pundit has disclosed that her mother died from being hit by a truck. This is why she was on-air during a match.
Nadia Nadim, representing Denmark at international level, was on ITV’s panel for Tuesday’s match against Tunisia.
She was not present at the conclusion of the World Cup match in Qatar, which ended with 0-0.
Nadim, aged 34, shared the news about her mother’s passing.
She posted on social media, “Tuesday morning, my mother was struck by a truck.” She was returning from the gym.
Nadim, who plays at Racing Louisville in the US, stated that words cannot describe how she feels. She added, “I have lost my most important person in life and it was so sudden and unanticipated.” She was just 57 years old.
Nadim paid tribute to her mother by calling her a “warrior who had fought for every inch”
“She didn’t give me life once, but twice, and all I/we are because of her.
“I lost my home, and I don’t know how to feel again.
“Life is unfair. I don’t know why she behaves this way.” You are my love and I will always see you.”
Father executed in Taliban
Nadim stated that her mother’s funeral will be held in the near future and asked people to come show their love and respect for her mother.
She didn’t say where her mother was murdered.
Nadim was born and raised in Afghanistan. She fled Afghanistan with her mother, sisters and father when the Taliban executed her father.

Sky News interviewed her about her experiences in 2013 and she stated that “my memories are divided into 2 parts.”
“Before the war I have fond memories of my country, our lives, and the safe environment. My dad and mum were my parents. Then I have the second, which is the war and after my father was killed.
“Those aren’t pleasant memories. They contain a lot chaos and a lot just horror. As a family, it was very difficult to function and see a bright future. We also felt unsafe.
Racing Louisville’s official Twitter account responded to Nadim’s tweet, saying “We’re thinking about you and your families.”
Seema Jaswal, a ITV football presenter wrote that she was heartbroken for Nadia. I send you and your family all my love and strength to get through this. I miss you and would love to have hugged you before you went.
Nadim also qualified as a doctor in January, apart from her football career.
