The University of Pittsburgh Panthers star has quickly become known for her relentless work ethic and commanding presence in the centre of the park. Her remarkable stamina and tackling prowess have proven invaluable, particularly against high-attacking sides like South Africa. Once again, her skills are expected to be crucial in disruptingBanyana Banyana’sattacks.

Coach Desiree Ellis will need to ensure the 20-year-old delivers an underwhelming performance if she hopes to stifle Abiodun’s impact and keep her midfield functioning at its best.

At the forefront of the Super Falcons’ attacking lineup stands Jennifer Echegini.

Fresh off a remarkable hat-trick for her club side, Women, just last week, Echegini holds the key to setting the tempo for the Super Falcons.
