The former Notts County star has truly been learning a lot about the Nigerian culture as she performed her initiation at the Nigeria Women’s national team camp
New Super Falcons star Ashleigh Plumptre showed off her dance steps as she rocked to King Sunny Ade’s music at her initiation.
Plumptre is among the few new stars in the Super Falcons star, and as customary, each player was asked to perform her initiation song.
The Leicester City Women’s star then chose to dance to a song from King Sunny Ade. It should not come as a surprise, though, as Plumptre had revealed before, she grew up listening to songs of the legendary musician.

Plumptre was born in England to British parents and represented the Three Lioness 30 times at youth level. But she qualified to play for the Super Falcons through her paternal grandfather, who was a Nigerian.
The 23-year-old is part of the Super Falcons 26-woman squad called up by coach Randy Waldrum for the Aisha Buhari Invitational Women’s Football Tournament.
Although the six-team tournament takes place in September, Plumptre and the other members of the squad are currently on an eight-day training camp in Austria.
