Her name is Leena Khamis and she is the forward on Australia's women team which has qualified to the women world cup quarter-final. She and the Aussie team will face Sweden on July 10.

She already scored a goal for Australia this world cup against Equatorial Guinea

Great and so proud of her. Sure it is women's world cup but this tournament is getting a very high profile.

As much as I want Brazil to win the FIFA 2011 Women World Cup, now that I know Australia has an Assyrian player, I will be cheering for them with all of my heart.

Can you imagine, an Assyrian winning the world cup? I know it is the women world cup, but like I mentioned already, it is a huge deal now.

This would go down as the greatest accomplishment by an Assyrian athlete ever.

Here is the discussion we had about Leena Khamis on this website some three years ago:

Glad to see the progress she has made in these three years...

Australia lost their quarter-final game today to Sweden 1-3 and has been eliminated from the tournament. But we are still very proud of Leena Khamis and what she did with the Australian team.

This will easily go down as one of the greatest athletic Assyrian accomplishments ever.

Very proud of you Leena, great job, and hope to see you at the Olympics next year.

Good for her!!  She's made it to the center stage of her profession!  Hopefully she gets another shot at the cup.

Too bad we couldn't see a USA vs Australia final!
