A viral video of a Mizoram girl playing football on heels has taken the internet by the storm. Netizens are sharing the video and posting that Football is for everyone and not just boys. The Mizoram girl posted the video as the keepy-uppy challenge, which proved to be a major #StayAtHome trend kickstarted by footballers around the globe, and she took it to another level.

Seen in the viral video is Cindy Remruatpuii, from Aizawal, Mizoram who is a footballer. Cindy is seen wearing a pair of black kitten heels also known as stilettos and is effortlessly juggling the ball. While most people can barely manage to walk in such an uncomfortable pair of footwear, the Mizoram girl is playing with the ball as if she is not wearing heels at all.

The video is a part of the #StayAtHome challenge due to which Cindy is seen inside her house playing on tiles instead of ground having grass cover. And yet the young footballer managed to show the ease in her moves.

The Instagram Reel, with a background score of NEFFEX’s song Grateful, has wowed many online as they wonder over her ability to control the football, ensuring it doesn’t touch the ground even once.

Cindy Remruatpuii gave an interview to the Indian Express where she said that she has played football since childhood and doesn’t remember the exact age when she started. Cindy also added that she looks up to the American footballer Alex Morgan for inspiration. Further talking about the unique way she dealt with the viral challenge, Cindy said, “I wanted to try it in a different way so that I might inspire people to do the same. Also, I wanted to show that everyone can play football whether it is a girl or a boy.”

Mizoram Sports Minister Robert Romawia Royte shared it on his official handles and congratulated Cindy who is currently in class 10. Royte proudly mentioned the Cindy is from his constituency in the caption. He wrote in the caption that football is not just for the boys, it’s for everyone and tweeted it with the tag #ShePower.
