Super Falcons of Nigeria invitee Evelyn Ijeh has described her call up to the Swedish women’s national team as a break-through.
“Being called up came like a surprise, but I was really happy and excited for getting the opportunity.”
The Nigerian born Swedish striker says she hopes to break through to the Swedish main senior team in future.
“Breaking into the senior team won’t be easy, however if the opportunity is given I will surely take it.”
She narrated the challenges she faced so far in the Swedish league.
“I would say there are more skilled individual players and the tempo is obviously higher.
She told Apexmedia2020.blogspot.com that last season was one of her best as she banged in goals.
“I would rate last season’s performance really high because it was a really great season both for me and the team.
The daughter of Peter Ijeh, the former Super Eagles International sees her club among the top six in the Swedish league.
“This coming season will of course be a challenge, but our determination is to be in the top 6 in the table.
Evelyn is still hopeful that one day she will extend her playing career to some top clubs across Europe.
