England-Based Umotong shocked by Falcons invitation

England-based striker Ini Umotong has revealed her shock at being invited by Nigeria for the Alanya Women’s Tournament in Turkey.
African champions, the Super Falcons will participate in the invitational tournament in April along with seven other countries.
Umotong, 23, plays for Brighton & Hove Albion in the Women’s Super League 2, the second division of women’s football in England.
Brighton are currently third in the league with 16 points from eight matches, seven points adrift of leaders Doncaster Rovers Belles who have played one game more.
“It was a feeling of shock, excitement and anxiousness. I was so excited, as I’ve been waiting for a call-up for a long time and it was really emotional,” Umotong told Brighton’s official website.
“My family was very happy and proud once they found out, and I’m so pleased with how it all turned out.”
The 23-year-old has one senior cap to date and explained how playing internationally is different to club football.
