Lisa Zimouche is a professional freestyle football player of French and Algerian descent who has become well-known for showing off her “nutmeg” talents in front of elite players worldwide. Originally, she was a part of the Paris Saint-Germain women’s youth team, but she chose street performance over organized football. She took part in the 2012 Red Bull Street Style World Final, and in 2014 she won the title of World Panna Female Champion. In 2017, she caught everyone off guard on the internet when she appeared in several videos with professional football players, including Canadian rapper Drake, former Brazilian player Ronaldinho, Paul Pogba of Manchester United, Granit Xhaka, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Hector Bellerin, and Shkodran Mustafi from the Arsenal team. In 2018, she was named one of PUMA Football’s brand ambassadors. Worm apparel is another sponsor of hers. O2 Management, an independent talent agency based in Paris, is her agent.

Ascent to Fame

Lisa Zimouche joined the Paris Saint-Germain women’s young team at the age of 13, which is when she started her competitive career. In 2012, she made her competitive debut in the Red Bull Street Style World Final. She chose to leave the squad at the age of 14 to focus on her development as a freestyle football player since she was more interested in showcasing her abilities off the field. She took home the 2014 World Panna Female Championship in that same year. She later said that after making the choice, she “felt free” in an interview at Soccerloco in Mission Viejo, California. She continued by saying that she didn’t need a team or a coach—she just wanted a ball to dance with.

She went on to give freestyle performances in several locations across the globe. She also engaged in ‘nutmeg’ challenges, wherein players from elite Arsenal teams and world-class footballers like Ronaldinho try to slide the ball between their opponent’s legs. Lisa, then eighteen, was named the 2018 PUMA Football brand ambassador. She frequently posts images and videos of herself showing off her amazing skills, which can rival those of well-known professional football players. Her Instagram profile now has over 1.7 million followers.

What Is Unique About Lisa Zimouche?

Now only 19 years old and straight out of high school, Lisa Zimouche has accomplished more in the last few years than most teens her age could ever dream of. Her millions of followers swarm her social media feeds to be amazed by her exceptional skills, which sets her apart from the other Instagram stars. To her credit, the youthful freestyler has already impressed several renowned people with her footwork.

In August 2016, she was first spotted playing alongside Paul Pogba, a midfielder for Manchester United. Alongside Arsenal players Granit Xhaka, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Hector Bellerin, and Shkodran Mustafi, she made an appearance in a video on February 13, 2017, for a challenge hosted by automaker Citreon, in which the football stars had to endure her “nutmeg” talents. In the video, Mustafi lost the challenge because she was unable to force the ball through Chamberlain’s knees while Xhaka slipped.

Chamberlain was able to capture the ball between his legs. Ten days later, on a routine visit to Paris Saint-Germain, where he had played in his early career, she stunned Brazilian football legend Ronaldinho with her skills. When he got to a hallway with covert cameras installed, she pretended to do mundane jobs. Then, she started showing off her moves, leaving the football hero dumbfounded. She played football with Canadian rapper Drake and Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt a few months later.

She and Italian footballer Gianluigi Buffon engaged in a friendly freestyle duel in October 2017, during which the goalkeeper demonstrated his ball-handling prowess but was ultimately outwitted by her. Luckily, she still has a sense of purpose in life even though she rose to popularity at a young age. In addition to performing freestyle across the globe, she hopes to “teach young people how to love the ball” by organizing workshops around the globe. Zimouche wants to encourage girls in particular to play street soccer and freestyle, as she is aware that the sport is dominated by men.
