Leicester City Women’s star, Ashleigh Plumptre may one day play for The Nigerian Super Eagles, if she has her way and says she would play for Nigeria at senior international level – if asked.
The former England youth defender, who is 23-years-old, plays for newly-promoted Women’s Super League (WSL) side Leicester City, and is eligible to play for the Super Falcons because her father is Nigerian.
