The former Harare City player also said she is looking forward to acquire more football knowledge from the new league in order to help transform and improve the country’s women’s football league.

“I feel excited and nervous at the same time, I am hoping it’s going to be a great experience,” she said.

“My target is to learn as much as I can and bring change to women’s football back home.”

She added: “I want to assist the team to win the league championship while at it.”

The Mighty Warriors forward went on to speak on the new climate conditions and the adaption to a new language and also culture.

“The environment is not bad, although there are challenges here and there. At the moment the only challenge I am facing is language barrier as well as the adaption to a new culture,” she revealed.

She further highlighted that Israeli women’s league is on the upper level compared to the domestic league.

“The league here (Israeli) is well organised, very competitive I must say, as compared to ours. We are nowhere close to the level of competition here,” Neshamba told Nehanda Radio.

Neshamba becomes the latest Mighty Warriors player to secure an international move.
