The youngest players in Waldrum’s squad have already shown their immense potential. At just 22 years old, Chiamaka Nnadozie has gained considerable experience as a goalkeeper, playing for Paris FC.

Imuran, also from Stade de Reims, is a promising young talent who possesses excellent positional awareness and technical abilities.

Deborah Abiodun, Jennifer Echegini, and Christy Onyenaturuchi Ucheibe, all 22 years old, feature in the midfield. Abiodun, a defender-turned-midfielder from River Angel, brings versatility and physicality to the team. Echegini, who plays for Seminoles, is known for her vision, passing accuracy, and ability to control the tempo of the game. Ucheibe, representing S.L. Benfica, is a dynamic midfielder with a strong work rate and the ability to contribute both defensively and offensively.

With their enthusiasm, skill, and determination, they will be crucial in Nigeria’s quest for success in the tournament.
