Ashley NaziraPamplemousses, Mauritius November 11, 1995 Currently playing for San Diego Loyal(USL)
Ashley was identified by our agency after the 2019 COSAFA Cup, hosted by South Africa. Mauritius were on the group of eSwatini and Comoros, ending last with 1 point.
Ashley scored 3 goals during this tournament, then proceeded to score 2 more during the 2019 JIOI (Indian Ocean Island Games). These numbers were just a reflection of his consistent performances in the Mauritian Premier League, where he was always among the top scorers while playing for a relegation zone team during all his years in Mauritius.
Capable of a deft touch, Nazira is a classy target forward who can link well with the midfield and is very strong in the air. He uses his 1.85m body very well to protect the ball and is a composed finisher with a powerful right foot.
Starting his football career at the age of 17, Ashley already finished his initial season as the second top scorer in the Mauritian Premier League with 17 goals.
After that he played multiple years with Entente Boulet Rouge both in first and second divisions, while having multiple offers to play for some of the best teams in the country or abroad in Reunion Island.
Recently, during the 2018/2019 season, Ashley was the top scorer in the 2nd division of Mauritius with 20 goals in 11 games, and left Entente Boulet Rouge to San Diego Loyal in December 2019 while having scored 5 goals in 4 matches during the start of the 2019/2020 season in the Mauritian Premier League.
