The 26-year-old made her debut for England last month in a friendly match against Austria.

It was a memorable night for Ubogagu who came on as a substitute in the second half and scored in the 3-0 win.

"It was a dream come true, I think all of it hasn't really sunk in yet," she said.

"Just very blessed and grateful for the opportunity.

"When I was selected for the camp I was super excited, I told my family and friends.

"The girls treated me so nicely and it speaks volumes of the culture they have set in place," Ubogagu said.

England coach Phil Neville had been following Ubogagu since February this year.

“She’s impressed me. We haven’t got a left-sided player with a left foot going forward, so she offers us something we haven’t got," Neville told The Telegraph last month.

However, Ubogagu didn't know if she would make her debut.

Having represented the United States at youth level, winning the 2012 FIFA U20s Women’s World Cup, she had to be given clearance by FIFA to play for England.

But despite making her debut, she is not tried to England and could've still made the decision to play for Nigeria, the country of her parents birth, or the US.

Ubogagu had previously received a call-up to the US team in 2017 ahead of the two friendlies against Canada in November but didn't play. 

"I'm super grateful for the US youth team and everything but I think from now on I want to try to play for England," she said.

Ubogagu knows that breaking into the World Cup squad of the world ranked number three won't be easy.

"There is a lot of talent and a lot of competition so it is going to be a camp by camp situation and hopefully come June we will see what happens," she said.
