What is Tazuni?
Tazuni is a penguin who is related to the unusual New Zealand race of the Eudyptula minor. This penguin is deeply connected to the New Zealand & Australian race of Eudyptula novaehollandiae.
According to FIFA, Tazuni is a 15-year-old midfielder, one day she was playing soccer on the beach, and her passion for this increased.
When she looks up one evening and sees fireworks displays burst overhead originating from a neighboring stadium, her footballing goals become a reality.
She enters the stadium with the assurance to display her skills after the beach kids give her customized football gear.
Tazuni is the mixture of the word “unity” and the “Tasman Sea” which separate the New Zealand & Australian seawater. Tazuni is street-smart and self-assured, and her distinctive blue tuft of hair makes her stand out from the crowd.
FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura stated, “Tazuni speaks for everything that makes the Women’s World Cup distinctive, and her message will impact millions of young fans across the world.
