“It’s just like it’s a part of me, I love the country, Coach Randy called me up for the games against USWNT and Jamaica in June and I was so excited to make the cut.
“I love the culture, I love the food with my favorite being fufu.”
Oyinyechi was born in Bern (Switzerland) to a Nigerian mother and a Swiss father
