“I’ve been training since late 2014 and I’ve played series of friendly games with the male team which has really helped me a lot. I’m fit and ready to go.”

Chiejine expressed her desire to wear the ‘Green and White’ shirt of Nigeria any time she’s called up.

Some local clubs have shown in­terest to sign the experienced Super Falcons player and top among them is Confluence Queens of Lokoja.
