2023 WWC: Super Falcons defender, Plumptre named in Team of Round of 16
Ashleigh Plumptre, a defender for the Super Falcons, has received recognition by being included in the Team of the Round of 16 at the ongoing 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, as curated by the popular statistics website, Whoscored.com.
Plumptre’s remarkable performance during the Super Falcons’ match against the Three Lionesses of England earned her this accolade. She was the sole representative from both the Super Falcons and the African continent to make it onto the shortlist.
During the intense game, Plumptre demonstrated her skills and contributed to the Super Falcons’ efforts, even hitting the woodwork early on. The 25-year-old has been a key player for Nigeria, participating in all four of the team’s matches, which took place in Australia and the Republic of Ireland.
Notably, Plumptre is currently a free agent after departing from Leicester City at the conclusion of the previous season. Her outstanding performance at the World Cup is likely to capture the attention of various clubs across Europe, highlighting her potential as a valuable addition to any team.
