The 34-year-old was part of the panel for ITV’s coverage of Denmark’s game against Tunisia on Tuesday.
However, tragedy struck when Nadim suddenly had to leave the studio.
Nadim’s mother had been killed while he was on the air.
Nadia said her mother was hit by a truck on her way home from the gym Tuesday morning.
“Words cannot describe what I feel,” he said in a statement on social media.
“I lost the most important person in my life, and it happened so suddenly and unexpectedly. She was only 57 years old.
“She was a warrior who had fought for every inch of her life. She didn’t give me life once, but twice, and all I am/we are because of her.
“I lost my home and I know nothing will ever feel the same again. Life is unfair and I don’t understand why her and why in this way. I love you and I will see you again.
“His funeral will be soon… please come and show him the love, respect and prayers he deserves.”
It is still unclear where Nadia’s mother was killed.
Nadia, born in Afghanistan, currently plays as a forward for the Denmark national team.
According to The Sun, Nadim fled Afghanistan in 2000 when the Taliban executed his father, the army general.
At the age of 11, Nadia left the country with her mother and four sisters.
He later discovered his love for soccer in a refugee camp in Denmark and is now on his national team.
As a striker, she has played 99 games since 2009 and has scored 38 goals.
