Netherlands player and referee fall in love after match

A Dutch second division assistant referee and a footballer formalized their relationship a few months after a match in which they crossed paths.

Love at first sight on a football field. Shona Shukrula posted a photo on her Instagram account with Jeff Hardeveld, left side of FC Emmen, to formalize their relationship.

According to The Telegraph, the two lovebirds met on August 13 during the match between Emmen and FC Eindhoven, where the young woman officiated as fourth referee. However, the meeting did not smile on the player, who had been sent off during the defeat of his team (1-0).

The two lovers have therefore posted their formalization a few months after this match.

Shona Shukrula started officiating in the 2009-2010 season and became fourth referee in the Dutch second division in 2020.

For his part, Jeff Hardeveld signed his first professional contract at Feyenoord, before playing in Utrecht and Héraclès Almelo. Since July, he is in the ranks of Emmen in the second division.
