Orlando Pride forward Chioma Ubogagu has been called up by England for their upcoming friendlies vs. Austria and Sweden. She joins Houston Dash forward Rachel Daly on the roster for the two games. [Full Roster]
Before moving to the United States, Ubogagu was born in London after her parents immigrated to England from Nigeria. Ubogagu has played for United States youth national teams, but has not made an appearance on the senior level. She received her first-ever U.S. senior call up last fall, but did not play in the two friendlies vs. Canada in November 2017.
Ubogagu is one of three first-time call ups for England’s senior team on this roster as they continue their preparation for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup next summer in France. Ubogagu is currently in Australia competing in the W-League on loan with Brisbane Roar.
