Bradford City's hijab-wearing teenage fan

Bradford City's path to Wembley has certainly grabbed the headlines, as it became the first fourth tier English football team to reach a League Cup final in more than 50 years.

But one fan in particular has enjoyed global attention in the run up to Sunday's match against Swansea City.

Fifteen-year-old Amina Qureshi was spotted in the crowd as she watched January's semi-final match between Bradford City and Aston Villa.

The schoolgirl was singled out because she wore a hijab.

Amina spoke to BBC Asian Network's Shabnam Mahmood about her memories of the night and her love of football.
