English-born Ashleigh Plumptre Speaks on Super Falcons Outing at Women’s World Cup

Ashleigh Plumptre is pleased with the Super Falcons’ performance at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Plumptre was born and raised in England, but she is eligible to play for Nigeria because her paternal grandpa is from Lagos, Nigeria.

She made four appearances at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The Super Falcons lost 4-2 on penalties to England at the Round of 16 stage on Monday August 7.

Despite the defeat, Plumptre took to Twitter to hail the team’s performance and reflect on the opportunity to explore her Nigerian heritage.

“Incredibly grateful for the opportunity to go deeper into my own identity, learn more about what it means to be “Naija spirit” and to showcase to the World what a unified, determined and empowered group of women are capable of achieving. Proud to be a Super Falcon,” she tweeted on Wednesday night, August 9.
