Islam And Football

The FIFA 2010 World Cup may have come and gone, but now has come for the regular club season to get up and running again. The globe's favourite competitive sport has a great Muslim presence in all of the biggest leagues, from the Premier League to La Liga to Serie A - and AYTD thought it'd be a great idea to bring together an Islamic starting XI that would be a strong force to be reckoned with against any team out there.
