Fighting for flag and country is a pressure-filled commitment, but Philippine women's football midfielder Sara Eggesvik knows how to mix it with fun.

The Fil-Norwegian introduced herself to the Philippines in a historic 2022 for Philippine football. Eggesvik scored her first goal for the country during the Filipinas' 2022 AFF Women's Championship title run.

Fans can get a glimpse of the behind the scenes in the 25-year-old athlete's TikTokwhich is filled with a lot of football, humor and, yes, cuteness.

For example, here are video compilations of her Manila and world tour with the Filipinas.
