Early Life & Education
Zećira Mušović was born on 26th May 1996 in Falun, Sweden. Her family are from Prijepolje, Serbia. Her family left from the town due to Yugoslav wars. They finally settled in Sweden. Zecira was brought up in Scania and she is of Bosniak heritage, which she always visits annually to see relatives and her favorite place Sarajevo.
Her older siblings were born in the town before they left for another city.
Zecira started playing football at the age of Nine.
Zecira has a degree in Bachelor of science in business and economics and as well completed a course in psychology and leadership.
Zećira Mušović is allegedly in a relationship with Swedish professional ice hockey player Alen Bibic.
Zecira started playing football at the age of Nine.
Zecira has a degree in Bachelor of science in business and economics and as well completed a course in psychology and leadership from Lund University.
Her older brother Huso Musovic was also a footballer.
Zecira has a website for her personal blog. She has a firm political view and has once challenged two of her social media contacts over their support for the controversial Sweden Democrats party at the 2018 Swedish general election.
Zecira started playing football for Stattena IF at the age of Nine. She spent two seasons with the club’s senior women’s team in Division 2 in 2011 and 2012, thereby helping the club to secure promotion in the latter campaign.
In October 2012, Zecira was transferred from Stattena to LdB FC Malmö. In 2013 she understudied Þóra Björg Helgadóttir, who was named Goalkeeper of the Year as Malmö secured the 2013 Damallsvenskan championship. Malmö rebranded as FC Rosengård for the 2014 Damallsvenskan and Zecira was elevated to first team contention when Helgadóttir left the club during the mid-season break.
German import Kathrin Längert then vied with Zecira for Rosengård’s goalkeeper position. When Zecira secured increasing first team participation in the 2015 Damallsvenskan, the club announced they were pleased with her development and awarded a new 2.5-year contract in May 2015. Ambitious Zecira wanted to become the best goalkeeper in the world.
Zecira received two setbacks ahead of the 2016 Damallsvenskan season. First Rosengård signed Canadian goalkeeper Erin McLeod, then Zecira broke her arm while playing for Sweden U-23s. In the event McLeod suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury, so the club had to bring in veteran Sofia Lundgren as cover.
After some long conversations with Rosengård director of football Therese Sjögran, Mušović agreed to remain at the club although she was unhappy at losing her place in the team once McLeod recovered from her injured knee. Instead of making a transfer request, she resolved to improve aspects of her own game by training alongside her experienced Canadian rival.
In October 2017 Zecira was given a new three-year contract by Rosengård. She declared: “FC Rosengård has always been and will always be the club in my heart”. McLeod’s lucrative contract was not extended, causing her team-mate and then wife Ella Masar to quit the club in solidarity.
Zecira captained Sweden under-19s to the 2015 UEFA Women’s Under-19 Championship final stage in Israel. She was disappointed when FC Rosengård stopped her attending the tournament because they needed her for club fixtures. The disappointment was compounded when Sweden under-19s won the competition.
Despite having lost her position as first choice at club level, Zecira was called up by incoming Sweden national team coach Peter Gerhardsson for the opening 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup qualifiers. She attended several matches as a non-playing substitute, then proudly won her first senior cap in March 2018, securing a debut “clean sheet” in a 3–0 win over Russia at the 2018 Algarve Cup.
Zecira endured a difficult second appearance for Sweden, when she deputized for Hedvig Lindahl in a friendly against Italy in October 2018. Her handling error allowed Daniela Sabatino to score the only goal of the match. In May 2019 she was one of three goalkeepers selected by Sweden for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, alongside Lindahl and the uncapped Jennifer Falk.
